Help plan Madras biking trails
Madras is poised to join the ranks of Central Oregon's hundreds of miles of mountain bike trails.
Most of these trails are in Deschutes County, with Crook County rapidly adding to the total. These are wonderful places for people to get out on trails, see beautiful backcountry and get great exercise, whether by bike or hiking.
Jefferson County has a beautiful Scenic Bikeway and equally beautiful gravel roads for the adventurous cyclists. We don't really have any dedicated single track trails for the avid mountain biker.
With more people in our community enjoying bicycling of every variety, an organizational meeting is planned to bring cyclists together to talk about what can be done to create trails near Madras.
The meeting will be at Wild Winds Station, on Thursday, June 29, at 6 p.m. Participants will talk about the kind of riding they do in Jefferson County and make plans to build trails in Madras.
