Mountain Bike Oregon is hosting a three day biking vacation through the mountain biking capital of the Northwest, Oakridge, Oregon.
Each day offers supported ride options for intermediate or advanced riders. The three day event is recommended for beginners as the Oakridge trails are not beginner friendly. Each pass includes access to showers, camping along the Willamette River, beer ticket for Oregon craft beer and wine, and daily yoga sessions. Free mechanical support and women’s rides and clinics are also offered.
Hot breakfast and lunch fixings will be provided and dinner options include food carts and shuttles to local restaurants in the area.
The first Mountain Bike Oregon (MBO) vacation had 34 people and brought riders from 10 states. In 2006 the event sold out with 300 riders. Since then MBO has added a second weekend event and is dedicated to respecting the trails and keeping impact to a minimum.
The weekend events are scheduled to happen July 17 - 19, and August 14 - 16. Registration for each rider costs $409 and non-riders costs $125.
