3 Scenic Mountain Tours

If you're looking for some of the most exquisite and pristine territory in the United States, you'll find it in Oregon. The state offers a tremendous number of places to view its scenery. From the coast to the top of Mt. Hood, there are plenty of scenic areas in Oregon to visit. A fantastic way to learn about a state is to drive its roads.

The National Scenic Byways Program's mission is to 'provide resources to the byway community in creating a unique travel experience and enhanced local quality of life through efforts to preserve, protect, interpret, and promote the intrinsic qualities of designated byways'. To become a NSB, the road must offer some sort of unique archeological, cultural, historic, natural, recreational or scenic quality that would be of interest to travelers along the way. So, of course, it comes as no surprise that Oregon has five National Scenic Byways. Here, I've listed three that showcase Oregon's fabulous mountains.

How To Choose The Appropriate Mountain Bike Accessories For Your Bike

So you went out and picked up a new mountain bike. It was probably pretty overwhelming at first. There were so many designs to choose from, different stores to shop at, different manufacturers to consider. You finally picked the bike you wanted and brought it home. You forgot something important, though. There are some accessories you ought to consider for your mountain bike and for you.
The first thing you should think about is safety. Safety accessories for mountain bike riders are diverse and plentiful. A key ingredient for rider safety is the helmet. Many riders shun helmets, but no intelligent rider should be without one. Statistics woefully back up the significance of helmets. Helmets save lives: it's that simple. It's not just your mortality you should be concerned with but also your long-term health. A serious head injury can leave you with a whole lifetime of health problems. Even a minor wreck can result in serious injuries if you hit your head and you're not wearing a helmet. Modern mountain bike helmets are light and sleek and do a better job of protecting your head than their clunkier predecessors. In the past, riders looked down on riders who wore helmets but in recent years reason has prevailed. More and more riders choose to wear helmets. Cost shouldn't be a factor as a good helmet can be acquired for around $30. If you want a top of the line model, be prepared to spend over $200.
