Oakridge is awesome. There are enough trails here to keep a person occupied for a lifetime. If you don’t have that much time, come ride with us for a few days and let us show you around our stomping grounds. We’ll do some shuttling, some adventure riding, visit the pub and relax by the river.
Meet the group at Cog Wild Headquarters in Bend and travel to Oakridge. After setting up camp along the Willamette River, we’ll jump on a shuttle for a shakedown ride to stretch our legs and make sure the bikes are working well. Meet and greet happy hour at 5 PM, followed by dinner. We’ll continue getting to know each other around the campfire then rest for a big day of riding. Riders are welcome to meet at the campsite in Oakridge.
Mileage: 10ish miles
Get ready for a shuttle fest! We’ll ride Hardesty, Lawler, Eula and more if you still feel strong! A refreshing dunk into the amazing swimming holes on the North Fork of the Middle Fork of the Willamette will prepare our bodies for another full day of riding.
Mileage: 15 to 25 miles
Today’s the adventure day: we’ll travel to Oakridge’s outer limits to ride high country trails. No shuttles on this one, prepare for a long day in the saddle, hike a bike sections and screaming fast descents.
Mileage: 15 to 25 miles
After breaking camp, we’ll ride the classic Alpine Trail or ATCA if the group feels like they want more. After a farewell cheers, the van will return to Bend and we’ll return to the world refreshed and content from multiple days of riding and being in nature.
