Private Shuttles

Do you have a group of riders? Consider booking a private shuttle. Want to skip wasting time staring at your phone trying to figure out where you are? Prefer to stop at the premium view points instead? We have awesome local guides ready to lead you to the goods. It’s not as expensive as you might think. Availability is limited, book in advance to secure your custom trip. Check out our Custom Shuttle options.

Suggested Shuttle Combinations

  • If you want to maximize your day (s) in Oakridge consider riding two or three trails in one day. With our shuttle service a fast intermediate or advanced rider can ride Alpine in the morning (8:30 or 9 am), and Larison Rock at noon.
  • A more moderately paced day, yet still big day is Alpine in the am followed by Hardesty (1:30 PM) or Lawler (1:45 pm).
  • If you are looking for a big day on the bike you can fit in a morning Alpine, then Larison Rock (noon), then Hardesty (1:30) or Lawler (1:45). (you need to keep up a quick pace to accomplish this).
  • Want to descend without much climbing? Dead Mountain is our signature flow trail, swoopy and smooth, everyone loves it. Larison Rock is another descent with very little pedaling required. These trails can be paired up any weekday day if you ride quickly, weekends offer more departure times and the rides can be connected at a casual pace.
