    Riding Bend on Turkey Day....

    Any thoughts on weather? Coming in from Jackson, WY, so it will (probably) feel warm to me. Suggestions on where to ride that late in the season?
    Thanks in advance!

    Hard to say this far out. Mt. Bachelor usually opens for skiing right around thanksgiving so anything at higher elevation will likely have snow on it. Lower elevation trails such as those in the Phil's network might be okay.

    As Nat points out, we could still be riding then but also could have our first snow and be XC skiing.

    Late season has the benefit of some rain to pack down the dust. I rode Phil's on Thanksgiving a few years ago and had some of the best conditions ever. Worst case the winter season trails like Horse Butte, Maston, and Horse Ridge will be rideable. Coyote Loop has great views and good riding.

    Yes I spent too much on bikes.

    I agree with all of the above. Your best bet is to check in here before you head this way from Jackson in November.

    Conditions can change quickly too--last year I was riding around Phil's almost daily until the Monday before Thanksgiving when we got a bunch of snow. That time of year you really have to pounce on it when trails/snow are rideable.
