Let's do a new easy to moderate mountain bike ride near Maston, which is located about 5 miles north of Tumalo off of Cline Butte Road. We will meet at 10 AM at Tumalo Coffee shop and coordinate rides to the Maston Trailhead on Newcomb Road We will return to the coffee shop around Noon for lunch.
This is a generally non-technical trail with a fantastic view in to Deschutes River Canyon. There were some sandy sections - but these should be improved with recent rains. We will ride approximately 10 miles. There is a good map available at the COTA (Central Oregon Trail Association) website.
This is not a beginner ride since there will be no formal sweep. Riders should have some mountain biking experience and should come prepared with a good map of the area, tools, water and appropriate clothing.
PLEASE NOTE: As the weather can change quickly at this time of year, please be sure to check back before the ride to see if there are any changes. Provided the ride is a 'go', remember to dress warm and layer.
