Nice job! In a couple of weeks I'll be passing through Bend. I've been riding Phil's Trail network for the past 10 years. Before that I had been riding McKenzie River Trail, but with my declining performance with age I switched to Phil's. McKenzie is a hand full especially when riding solo and trying to hitch a ride back, or having to ride out & back (50 miles!). How does Peterson Ridge Trail compare with Phil's? I like the camping just below Phil's TH.

Hi Calbiker, I have to be honest, I have only ever ridden the race course at the Peterson Ridge complex. It was super run, and rather smooth flowing single track. My couple of friends that live in the area rave about it, as its a little less crowded than Phil's.
Found one other race photo today from the photo teams on the course.... This would be how most of the single track looked. There were a few rock sections, as so many of the areas had lava flows way back.
The new ride app and website for much of PNW is a great source for ride info.

My next mountain bike is going to be a "road" bike.

Strongly considering the Ridley X-Ride Disc. Haven't decided on the equipment group yet.

Kinda digging the matte olive paint color:

I hope you have a good spine! I had a Kona Jake the Snake for a long time, and any time I ventured very far off piste on the thing I would end up with numbness and nerve shock.

CX bikes are super fun to bomb around on. My Jake had V-brakes...Discs would have been a game changer!

Yeah, I've been eyeing CX-type bikes for many years, and it's only been since the advent of disc brakes that I've been seriously smitten.

It's also cool that CX-type bikes have now split into so many different sub-categories. CX race bikes, recreational CX bikes, gravel bikes, adventure bikes, monstercross bikes, bikepacking bikes, and so on.
