Holy Shuttles, Batman!

Advocacy Alert

ICYMI, our very own Andy Jansky made an appearance on Bike Portland this week!  If you’re curious what NWTA has been up to re: trails in Portland, check out the article. Then, check out this page to learn more about how you can help us get more singletrack that Portlanders don’t have to drive to.  We need your voice to help us get the Offroad Cycling Master Plan off the back burner.

Weekly Regional Roundup

This week is shuttle mania!  Alsea Falls, Cold Creek, 44 Trails?  There’s something for everyone to whet your appetite while you wait for the Sold Out Sandy Ridge Shuttle Day next month.

*Inclusion in this list does not denote an NWTA connection; we’re here to spread the word for all our friends and partners across the region.

NOTE: Unless a group ride indicates that it is an NWTA, NW Trail Sisters or Dusty Dads & Muddy Moms ride, it is not affiliated with the NWTA.  Please be prepared to self-support on any group ride or event that you attend and be mindful of the skill level required to participate. If you’re unsure of your level, check out our skill level guide as a starting point.
