    Some of my all time favorite primitive single track is in Ft. Stevens St. Park. You can have a lot of fun in there. Glad to see the North Coast getting something going.

    Nice shot! Yeah that place is still pretty fun for a zip around. We did our "Take A Kid Mountain Biking" day event there...perfect for them. This pump track is the start, the real deal is the trail network in Astoria that's in the first planning stage. Good things happening!

    If you know where all the trails are between Delaura beach rd. and the first jetty rd. parking lot and how to connect them it is more than a zip around and you can spend several hours getting a good workout if you ride them both ways. I did it a lot when I lived down there. In order to keep the flow going though some saw work has to be done from time to time.

    Hopefully you can get the Astoria trails going it has been talked about for a long time. There is lots of top shelf gravel out in them thar hills also if you are in to that sort of thing which does seem to be a thing these days.

    yeah for sure you can spend a few hours out there, better this time of year too when its wet and packed in. Fun stuff

    Astoria has immense potential. ODF is 100% behind it, the trails will be on their land. City of Astoria is stoked and have asked about a connector trail to town. We did an NCTA cleanup event out there a few weeks ago on Pipeline Rd and hauled nearly 4000 lbs of gnarl, filled a 20 yd dump box. The city and ODF are both very happy with everything done so far, that built a ton of good will. It's helping to have an ODF guy that's into it and behind getting trails built. Its also helping to have the Health Promotion Specialist for Clatsop County Department of Public Health as a mountain biker and NCTA member. He knows exactly who to talk to and that provided the ODF connection. Stars seem to be aligning on this one, fingers crossed.

    That's a great sign of support from the land agency. Isn't BRMBA also on ODF land?

    Two out of three pump tracks done on site. Will need some tweaking but it's close to rideable now. Thanks to the generous equipment donations from All Rents, couldn't have possibly accomplished what we did in the short time without those tools. Nice to have the City of Seaside 100% behind this project- the city mayor actually stopped by a job site one of our members was working at on Thursday to tell him how appreciative they are for the work. We want the keys to hills, this is a good start.
