    After two days of driving, a freeway shooting (with an officer involved), being locked out of the condo at midnight with 30 degree weather, we are ready to ride!
    Coffee: check
    Bikes: check
    Food down: check
    MTBR representing: check!

    We is ready!!!!

    First impressions? Beautiful! The bike lanes on the roads are even elevated so the cars stay off them! Great thinking guys; only if Cali would have thought of that.
    The Mount Bachelor Village Resort is awesome too. We overlook the Deschutes River and there is a spa on the balcony!

    Time to ride!!!!!

    Hey Francois and Kyle - Tell Andy that I finished his keg last night and I need more funds to buy a new keg of Cismontane IPA.

    Cheers - Martin

    2 days of driving? My record was 8 hours door-to-door from Santa Clara to Bend! If you look across the Deschutes River to the South, you'll be looking in the direction of my old house. I'm jealous of you guys - Bend is a very nice destination. Phil's Trails, McKenzie River and camping up near Mt Bachelor brings back some good memories.

    I don't suppose you guys can bring some of the single-tracks and trail-friendly legislatures from OR back to CA?

    Francis should post photos soon. We rode for 11 to 5pm today. Epic! We got to ride a wide variety of trails today.
    The first thing we did when we got back to the condo today? Open beers and start downloading photos. It's now 6:20 and we are still downloading photos! Simply an awesome day! Still in our jerseys....
    I have to get SoCal up here! Everything from fast and flowy to rock gardens and stunts! Thanks to Lev for leading us!!!!

    No worries Martin. We are about to go to Deschutes Brewery for a topless costume party.

    Nice! Ahh, Whoops Trail - now that's a fun one. After a day out at the lakes or mountains, my wife used to drop me off at the Swampy trail-head so I could ride back to town.

    it seems everybody here rides.

    - On the radio they kept talking about the upcoming cross race and handmade bike show.
    - We saw a group of 15 kids on bikes on a trail. They were in class elective - mountain biking
    - the bike lanes are elevated
    - the beer is insanely good. mostly ipa!
    - whoops trail is A++

    Near the end of one of the most amazing rides of my life, we came upon Whoops Trail. Our gude Lev was one of the key designers of the trail. He said this was a trail that could make a 10 year old rider or a Cedric Gracia happy.

    This is truly one of the finest sections of trail I've ever done. It is about a three mile downhill section of huge berms, jumps, tables and doubles. What cannot be captured is the flow of the trail. The transitions are intense as you just send it right into a berm that just shoots you out into another set.

    It's like a Whistler mini A-line. You can do it over by climbing a gentle fire road for about 15 minutes. Lev told us about Whoops Happy Hour, where they just have lawn chairs and beer at the bottom and just hang out as people session it.

    Glad you guys hit Whoops! Last year, after MBO, we stayed a night in Bend to go ride Phils and then we sessioned Whoops 4 or 5 times. Insane!! It gets better each time you ride it since you learn what's coming up and where to get speed. Speed is your friend.

    After coming off a jump, I heard a strange noise and stopped to see what was up - my 10mm rear DT Swiss axle was coming loose!! Glad I stopped. I almost didn't stop because I didn't want to break my flow.

    For those who haven't seen whoops yet, Check out out Kirt Voreis' video.



    Did you guys ride the slalom track at the bottom of Whoops? We couldn't find it.

    Edit: Derek, nice blur! Francis, is that you on an Enduro?

    Tremendous pictures. I have a strong sense of nostalgia looking at them. Or maybe it's déjà vu. Deschutes Convex is the stuff... If only we could find it down here!

    Yeah that 2nd pic of you fc cresting that jump should have a caption of "Whoah is it brake or no brake to get the rr settled back down?" What a great outting it looks like.

    Safe trip back to the B-A rea.

    Nothing 10 Barrel makes can compare to Deschutes' Reserve or Bond Street series. 10 Barrel is fun, but they're on par with Boneyard, Green Lakes, Silver Moon, and GoodLife. BBC even has higher ratings than 10 Barrel.

    I only buy the beer from Central Oregon Trail Alliance sponsors: Deschutes Brewery and Silver Moon Brewing. See Sponsors

    Sadly, we did run over a honey badger last night. Or a lemur... We have some video of it but it may be too graphic for mtbr.

    We're driving home this morning. We shall see all you Norcalers in Bend next year.

    I think Rox is demanding his hefeweizen. Also, those two wiminz only ride 29ers and Rox is not pleased.

    Cool. So, how does the Blur TRc ride?
    Faster is not always better, but it's always more fun

    The TRc is an amazing ride. Derek has ridden his for a few months and it has elevated his riding a couple of notches. His climbing is better with this 24 lb bike that climbs like a goat.

    He has it set up with a 120/150 talas fork and he is descending like a champ. We took so many drop lines and rocks and Derek is usually just laughing now. Bear in mind he is an xc rider.

    We have another TRc and Ron, Kyle and I have ridden it. It has a low BB and slack head angle. We call it the hero bike. It can be set up to xc race or to send it!
