    Looking for a place to take my newbie rider wife!

    I just got my wife into riding. We are looking for a weekend vacation to ride some fairly easy trails. I am a A rider that can ride anything. My wife is a C rider that would love nothing close to technical. We live in the Midwest and want to get away for a weekend. Any suggestions?

    Yes, Bend Oregon! The trails start right outside of town and are not technical, rooty, rocky or hard. They are perfect for a beginner rider. For more experienced riders you can ride longer rides and go to other areas that have more advanced trails.

    Bend is also an awesome town to come hang out in: tons of breweries, vacation houses for two ppl, restaurants, nice people...

    One great idea: have your wife come ride with us for your first morning. We can take her on an awesome ride perfect for her level, give her some tips and give you a chance to get in a good ride. We can also help show you the trails so you can plan the rest of your ride.

    More info required! Where in the Midwest? Do you want to fly or drive? Bring your own bikes or rent? Camp or hotel it? Ride all weekend or have some other "options"?
