WELCOME TO OAKRIDGE

A thickly forested wonderland awaits. Descend for hours. HOURS PEOPLE! Not to say there isn't a crap-ton of climbing in your hours-long descents, but the stunning old growth forests, high alpine meadows bursting with wildflowers, and Cascadia vistas are worth it.

Lush forests, rivers teeming with fish and wildlife, and mountain ridges with breathtaking views - Oakridge is considered the mountain bike capital of the Northwest for good reason: the riding is stunning, the dirt epic, and the trails are almost endless with 350 miles of singletrack

Located in the heart of the 1.8 million acre Willamette National Forest, Oakridge boasts a varied landscape of high mountains, narrow canyons, cascading streams, wooded slopes, and quiet icy blue lakes - all nestled in a blanket of beautiful Douglas Fir pines.

Itinerary

Subject to change based on conditions.

Day 1

Guests arrive to a huge lunch spread to enjoy while everyone gets bikes dialed. At midday we'll kickoff a weekend of with a shuttle up to Dead Mountain (not as scary as it sounds) for a crazy fun descent featuring a top section of flow trail and rugged old-school singletrack. We'll pop out on Salmon Creek for an optional extra credit ride to a beautiful waterfall before taking an (optional) pedal beck to camp. Enjoy a hot shower then get ready for a stunning dinner curated by Whole Foods ambassador Lentine Alexis.

Ride: 6-19 miles, 200-800 feet climbing.

Day 2

After a filling and delicious breakfast, we'll load into shuttles and head up to Oakridge's finest: Alpine Trail. Be ready for mega descents, a few big climbs, stunning vistas, techy switchbacks, an optional (crazy big) extra credit loop, & more descending. Lunch is trailside, with a well-deserved cool down in the North Fork of the Willamette. Once back at camp, we'll serve up a few Roam-a-Ritas while our pro mechanics lead an optional evening tech & gear clinic with dinner and campfire kumbaya to follow. 

Ride: 9-24 miles, 1200-3900 feet climbing.

Day 3

By now you know the drill - amazing breakfast, big 'ol shuttle, & epic descent. We've got a number of options for our last day in Oakridge that our legs will self-select. Regardless of what trail we ride, be ready for wicked fun high alpine descent! Lunch will be served trailside, with plenty of leaders around to hit the trails afterward for round 2 should you feel the need to ride until your legs fall off. This is our final day together, so we'll pack up, hug it out, & send you home most likely grinning ear to ear. 

Ride: TBD 5-16 mi  200-1600 ft climbing.
