This is one of our favorite 3 day trips of the year. Oakridge! This is where it all started for us. We first explored this area in 2007, just dipping that toe in to find a huge network of some of the world’s best mountain bike trails. This 3 day weekend is our version of the three best days of riding in the Oakridge area and a revisit of three grand days of the Trans-Cascadia Mountain Bike Race. Our first day will include a proper exploration of the Lake Timpanogas complex. This area has two high alpine lakes, and some incredible riding that’s only open from late August to early October. We’ll have time to swim, fish, stand up paddle board and just relax. We’ll continue our riding on Day two where we’ll explore the remainder of the Timpanogas complex and then make our way down the upper Middle Fork and end our day on one of the biggest descents in the Willamette, Moon Point. On day Three we’ll head back into Oakridge proper where we’ll Shuttle, ALL Day Long. We’ll accumulate a solid 10K of descending and squeeze every last bit of riding out of our weekend. We’ll end our day at Jeff Lee’s Chinese Cuisine for a solid meal of the best Chinese food you’ve ever had. While you’re here, check out our About Oakridge section below for places to see while in town.
