This route utilizes paved and hard pack dirt roads to connect new and existing single track. Stunning views towards the Red Buttes and the Coastal Range will be had. This route is by far harder than any HB in 2018 and will be best on a mountain bike or gravel bike with 40mm tires or bigger. Yes, it can be done on a CX bike but you most likely will regret it.
We will meet up at the Sweet Beet Station Cafe in downtown Talent where you can fuel up for the ride with some delicious breakfast and coffee. The ride will start at 9 a.m. so if you plan on eating there get there early. Post ride food and beverages can be found at the Sweet Beet Station, The Pumphouse or The Grotto.
