It's Time to Ride!
Everyone says that September and October are the best in Oregon—and it's true! Especially for riding up in the high mountains and lakes. The trails have been cleared of blowdown, the bugs are gone, the temperatures are not too hot/not too cold... and your legs are in great shape from riding all summer, right? The window of time to ride high in the central Cascades is a small and precious one, so make the most of it. Whether it's the Waldo Zone or up in the Timpanogas/Summit Lake area, stunning alpine lakes, spectacular views and some of the sweetest singletrack around are all out there waiting for you.
