Well technically we're not in Oregon, but Vancouver is close....except for jaunts down 224 to Detroit Lake, and a few other roads, we generally stay on this side of the river. Our main haunt is SR503 between Battle Ground & Cougar, and in the summer, also between Cougar & Mt. St. Helens. Forest Service roads 90, 25 & 99 are my idea of heaven on earth.

Have you guys ever ridden the "Aufderheide" memorial road in central Oregon? It goes from McKenzie Bridge to Oakridge. Another GREAT road.

Hmmmm about 2 more months & Windy Ridge will be open again!! :banana

Welcome Bert!

Quicklimegirl;
If your looking for a really nice mountian curvy climb that overlooks Downtown Portland check out Patton Road inbetween Scholls Ferry and SW Vista. Its an awesome ride with the best view of downtown Portland imaginable.

I don't know the SW area very well. Do you have a cross-street to access it from, or a landmark/address I can map it with? I'm always looking for close-in twisties, all the hidden gems in any metro area!

I linked a google map with the area circled on it. Its only about a 5 mile ride, but it takes you through a REALLY nice neighborhood area (high speeds acceptable, i've never seen a cop on the road and I drive it daily...35mph is the posted) and it takes you up and over the west hills that over look downtown from the SW side. Amazin sun rise view. On a clear day you can see mount hood in the background of the skyline.

heya, I am in Tualatin. I ride a 04 Yamaha Fz6.
My favorite places to ride are Bald Peak, Sholls, Vernonia, Hwy 224 Estacada up to Fish Creek bridge, Redland Rd. But I think that my favorite would be the old Bend hwy into Alfafa. this route loops you from Bend into Redmond (in the outskirts) The terrain on that side of the mountain is so flat, for the most part, that you can see COMPLETELY though the corners which allows you run hot the whole ride if traffic permits. Its like 40 miles of "track". Freaking amazing! Oh and The road that takes you to Tumalo falls is one of those roads that is desserted most of the time and has 40-50 mph curves. TALK ABOUT AN OPPRTUNITY YOU CANT PASS UP.
My favorite on this side of the moutain would be a toss between Bald Peak to Vernonia then down into Scappose and home or Redland rd into Estacada then up hwy 224 and back. LOL i guess that is almost all of the routes I first listed. ;)
Happy riding!
