Mt. Bachelor Gravity Series :: Race 2

Mt. Bachelor Gravity Race Series

Mt. Bachelor is looking forward to our third summer of the Gravity Race Series! This is an unsanctioned series, so you do not need any special license or membership in order to participate. Simply show up on the evening of the race or pre-register online to participate, competitors will need a valid day/twilight lift ticket or season pass to compete. While it is a race, and inevitably competitive, it’s a pretty laid back event focused mainly on fun and local camaraderie.

In this series, we like to keep things simple with two Men’s divisions, a Women’s divisions, and a Youth division. Everyone will race the same course, the divisions are simply to break up ability levels. If you are an experienced mountain bike and downhill rider then you should compete in the Elite Division. If you are newer to mountain biking or have only rode the bike park a couple times, then you should compete in the Open Division. Prizes will be awarded to the top finisher in each division. Competitors who are 21+ can enjoy a post-race beverage complimentary of 10 Barrel Brewing.

Keep in mind, this is a four-part series. Upon completion of the fourth and final Gravity Race this summer, we will crown an overall champion for the fastest combined time in all four races (and offer a special prize). So whether you love Enduro or prefer going full on Downhill, we invite you to join us for our summer of Bike Racing here at the mountain!

Oregon Timber Trail - Deschutes Tier Stewardship Campout


Hosted by the Oregon Timber Trail Alliance

August 11-13, 2017
La Pine, OR
Deschutes National Forest

REGISTER HERE

The Oregon Timber Trail is an iconic 670-mile backcountry mountain bike route spanning Oregon’s diverse landscapes from California to the Columbia River Gorge. The route is composed of four unique tiers, each presenting their own challenges for trail maintenance and rehabilitation. This event is the third of four trail work parties—or Stewardship Campouts—that the Oregon Timber Trail Alliance has committed to coordinating throughout the state in 2017. Expect to work hard in a stunning landscape, drink good beer and coffee, and ride through some amazing backcountry forests and alpine meadows.

The Deschutes National Forest has a reputation as a destination for mountain biking and the dedicated members of the Central Oregon Trail Alliance and other user groups do an excellent job of maintaining trails from year to year. Because of this we’re headed towards the southern boundary of the Deschutes NF to work on trails that are less frequently used and even less frequently worked on.

NO EXPERIENCE REQUIRED – That’s right, we just need a smile, a pair of gloves, and a good attitude from you. Our goal for this 3-day event will be focusing primarily on the connections between Waldo Lake and the Cascade Lakes, as well as sending an adventurous crew to the Windy Lakes zone. These zones are high altitude and dry alpine singletrack. Despite the arid climate, there are many small green-blue lakes scattered throughout the landscape, inviting frequent dips in August temperatures. The work will primarily be focused on controlling erosion and bucking fallen trees. We are in peak fire season so will not be operating chainsaws anywhere in the Deschutes National Forest.

SCHEDULE – We’ll set up base camp on Thursday evening, and plan on beginning work after breakfast on Friday morning. Expect to put in a solid 8 hours of trail work on Friday and Saturday. Sunday will be a partial day—leaving some time for a ride after an early lunch.

Friday, August 11th
Trail work: 9am – 5pm
Group meal: 6pm

Saturday, August 13th
Trail work: 9am – 5pm
Group meal: 6pm

Sunday, August 14th
Trail work: 9am – 11:30am
Group ride: 12:30pm – 3:30pm

GETTING THERE – Trail work will be done on several trails in the Cascade Lakes area, outside of La Pine, OR. The roads to base camp will be passable by all passenger vehicles.There is likely no cell reception so carry paper maps. It’s about a 3.5 hour drive from Portland. Exact location and driving directions TBA.

Group camp will be on the Southwest side of Wickiup Reservoir (43.665272, -121.805930) off of the Cascade Lakes Highway and NW of NF-44. Link to Google map here. This is a dispersed camp site with plenty of room for our group but no bathrooms or potable water. There are a number of developed campgrounds nearby that may have potable water and pit toilets. Nearest fuel, supplies, etc. are approximately 25 minutes away at the Odell Sportsman Center on Highway 58 near Crescent Lake or the small town of Crescent located on Highway 97.

LOGISTICS – We’re camping in central Oregon in mid summer. There is likely no cell service. There is no potable water, though campgrounds with water are nearby. There are no toilets on site, the group will dig a latrine to minimize impact. Temperatures will be high and mosquitos likely.

Our partners at Base Camp Brewing and Stumptown Coffee have generously supplied us with coffee and beer. Nearest fuel and services are 45 mins away in Crescent, Oregon.

YOU SHOULD BRING – Tent, sleeping bag, pad, extra toilet paper, lots of water, cooking gear, food, and a camp chair. During the work day Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is required to work on public lands; this includes a 6-point suspension helmet (some loaners provided), eye protection, gloves, long pants, long sleeve shirt, and sturdy shoes/boots. Bring a pack, with water, snacks, mosquito repellant, and sunscreen each day as well. If you have a large pack or BOB trailer, consider bringing it as the trails are steep and rugged and getting tools to where they’re needed will be a challenge. And don’t forget your bike gear—we’ll make sure there’s some time to ride if you’re not too exhausted at the end of the day.

WEATHER – Expect temperatures to be very hot. Manage your body temp by taking frequent shade breaks, hydrating, and keeping your skin covered. A shirt or bandana soaked in water does wonders.

This is going to be a fun event working, camping, and riding through the high alpine desert on trails you likely haven’t lain eyes on. We’re excited and grateful that you’re spending a valuable summer weekend giving back to our public lands.

On behalf of the Oregon Timber Trail Alliance and the Deschutes National Forest a huge thanks goes out to everyone lending a hand at this stewardship event.

Oregon Timber Trail - Hood Tier Stewardship Campout

Hosted by the Oregon Timber Trail Alliance & Trans-Cascadia

August 25-27, 2017
Idanha, OR
Willamette National Forest

The Oregon Timber Trail is an iconic 670-mile backcountry mountain bike route spanning Oregon’s diverse landscapes from California to the Columbia River Gorge. The route is composed of four unique tiers, each presenting their own challenges for trail maintenance and rehabilitation. This event is the fourth and final of our trail work parties—or Stewardship Campouts—that the Oregon Timber Trail Alliance has committed to coordinating throughout the state in 2017. Expect to work hard in a stunning landscape, drink good beer and coffee, and ride through some amazing backcountry forests and alpine meadows.

Register Here

The Old Cascade Crest area is oft overlooked by backpackers for the wilderness trail networks closer to Mount Jefferson, leaving it untouched and rough around the edges for the more adventurous backcountry traveller. Lying deep in the Willamette National Forest roughly an hour from Sisters and Salem, and just over two from Portland, this zone is conveniently located a short drive from many riders’ front doors. The trails are no joke, however. The Old Cascade Crest loop is about 30 miles long with almost 7,000′ of climbing and if you add in Crescent and Bachelor Mountain trails you double those numbers.

The Oregon Timber Trail Alliance is partnering with Trans-Cascadia and BendTrails for this Stewardship Campout, complementing the many work hours they’ve already invested in these trails this season.

NO EXPERIENCE REQUIRED – That’s right, we just need a smile, a pair of gloves, and a good attitude from you. Our goals for this 3-day event will be focusing primarily on raking trail tread and lopping undergrowth along trail edges in the Crescent, Bachelor, Scar, and Coffin Mountain areas. These zones are densely forested, steep, and offer fantastic views of Mount Jefferson.

SCHEDULE – We’ll set up base camp on Thursday evening, and plan on beginning work after breakfast on Friday morning. Expect to put in a solid 8 hours of trail work on Friday and Saturday. Sunday will be a partial day—leaving some time for a ride after an early lunch. Basecamp will be located at Tule Lake.

Sunday, August 27th

GETTING THERE – Trail work will be done on multiple trails in the Old Cascade Crest region, outside of Idanha, OR. The roads to base camp will be passable by all passenger vehicles. There is no cell reception so carry paper maps. It’s about a 2.5 hour drive from Portland. Driving directions to Tule Lake basecamp are here.

LOGISTICS – We’re camping high in Oregon cascades in mid summer. Weather will be hot and mosquitos quite likely. There is no cell service. There is no potable waterThere are no toilets on site, the group will dig a latrine to minimize impact.

Our partners at Base Camp Brewing and Stumptown Coffee have generously supplied us with coffee and beer. Nearest fuel and services are 45 mins away in Detroit, Oregon.

MEALS – Trans-Cascadia has generously offered to provide dinners for all volunteers on Friday and Saturday nights. You are responsible for all other meals throughout the weekend.

YOU SHOULD BRING – Tent, sleeping bag, pad, extra toilet paper, lots of water, cooking gear, food, and a camp chair. During the work day Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is required to work on public lands; this includes a 6-point suspension helmet (some loaners provided), eye protection, gloves, long pants, long sleeve shirt, and sturdy shoes/boots.

WEATHER – Expect temperatures to be very hot. Manage your body temp by taking frequent shade breaks, hydrating, and keeping your skin covered. A shirt or bandana soaked in water does wonders.

This is going to be a fun event working, camping, and riding through some high-cascade trails that none of your riding buddies have touched. We’re excited and grateful that you’re spending a valuable summer weekend giving back to our public lands.

The 2017 High Cascades 100

The High Cascades 100 is a Central Oregon MTB race like no other!

Mud Slinger EventsIt challenges elite pro racers and hard core weekend chargers alike to cover 100 miles of amazing Central Oregon single track — and climb around 8,000′ in the process.

The course changes each year and will be posted on their website as race day gets closer.

Top pros will finish in under 8 hours duking it out the whole way, and it’s not uncommon for the last finisher to arrive at sunset around the 15 hour mark.

Now, a race like this is not to be taken lightly. As their website FAQ says: “Most likely injury: Collarbone followed by laceration.” If that sounds hard core (and it is), consider volunteering. Helping the athletes who compete in this race at aid stations, at the start, or at the finish is a fun experience — and something that feels great to be a part of. Contact the HC100 Volunteer Coordinator for more info.
