Road and Mountain Biking

FREEZE-THAW WARNING: overnight temps well below freezing will cause freezing and thawing of tacky dirt. Trail tread will be both muddy and extremely delicate in areas not under the canopy. Please don’t ride the trails if you see mud. You’ll do significant damage. Trail sensitivity will increase dramatically as overnight temps drop this week – please avoid Syncline, as it’s the most susceptible to daytime warming and resulting bike tire damage. Remember that the southern half of Whoopdee has been logged (is gone). Riding Underwood? No parking at the trailhead – you’ll need to drive ½ mile east of the trailhead and park there. Also, someone spotted a cougar there recently, so you may want to ride with a partner.  

Upcoming Events

There are several Tai Chi classes at the Hood River adult center during the day. In the evening, there’s pickleball at 5 at The Dalles Readiness Center. There’s $5 yoga at Samadhi in White Salmon at 6, Tai Chi at Our Savior church in Bingen at 6, and Zumba at 6:30 at Mid-valley elementary. At 7am on Friday, there’s the Kickstand Coffee Run, where jogging or walking 4 miles gets you a free cup of coffee and a donut. Saturday is the Klickitat marathon, 5k, and half-marathon.
