hi tinmandan - i'm in salem and get over to china hat outside of bend and also down around paisley which is east of medford. there's a lot of technical rides over around bend - esp china hat. that's one of our favorite places to ride. late fall and late spring are best. haven't done a lot around medford though. sounds like you've been on the dunes, too. i really enjoy those down around winchester bay on weekdays and in the fall and winter when no one's around. welcome back to oregon!
