Rides from campus can take you

Forest Park is across the Willamette River and has dirt trails well-suited for mountain bikes.  Nearby access points to the Leif Erickson trail are located across the St. John's bridge on Germantown road as well as the end of NW Thurman St.

Sandy Ridge is a nice place to mountain bike with trails accessed from a central spine.  This offers all levels of riding with most trails intermediate to advanced.  Distance from campus is about 45 minutes.
