Oakridge is the mountain biking capital of the northwest. There are over 300 miles of premium single track easily accessible from our front door. For road cyclists there are excellent options on low traffic paved roads leading to quiet forest environments. The events below tell their own story of superb biking terrain and access.
Stop in at the Willamette National Forest offices, 4 miles west of Oakridge, or Willamette Mountain Mercantile right in Oakridge for current trail conditions. Tour and shuttle services are available if you would like a packaged tour. Oregon Adventures will help you put together a great trip. Our lodge offers covered and locked bike storage, a repair stand, tools, pumps, drying room, maps, and a washing station. If you left your T-9 at home, we have some.
