    Best bet for close-in riding right now is the Ridgeline Trail in south Eugene. It’s got a lot of gravel but it’s in the woods and you can get a great workout. I do variations of it from my house near the UO and typically get 13 miles and 2,000 feet elevation gain.

    Ride up the Headwaters Trail from Martin Street to Fox Hollow then over to Dillard Road and up and over Mt. Baldy to Spring Blvd. Turn around and climb back up and return. You can do laps on the climbs for more elevation gain if you want.

    Note that there are alternate trails on the Fox Hollow and Baldy sections that are closed to bikes. And if you need any more info or directions go talk to the guys at Life Cycle Bikes—Ridgeline is their go-to after work ride.

    If you attend a DOD, ATCA or GOATS work party and you sign in, you don’t need to log your own hours. They will be turned in for you by whichever entity organized the trail work.

    Damn! Sorry it happened to you too, Matt. Maybe we should call the Army Corps and let them know that this is happening on their property. In the meantime I think I’ll be parking in downtown Lowell and adding on an extra mile of road rather than risk getting broken into again while riding North Shore.

    Yes— thank you, Bruce! That was a lot of work, I’m sure. Can’t wait to go ride it again.

    Do you mean you logged it out, Bruce? Or maybe you were out there in the last few days with a brush cutter? There are no trees down on NS Tie, but as of last Friday, June 22, it certainly had not been brushed in a looong time (a couple of years or more). You can barely see the trail in some places and it’s a gauntlet of poison oak … you can’t avoid touching the stuff 🙁
