It's a new trail work season so we are starting over keeping track of volunteer's hours. Last year Disciples of Dirt members logged almost 3,200 hours maintaining and improving our local trails and DOD garnered its second award from the USFS for dedication to trail work. Check the forum or calendar to find out about the next trail work party, and join us!

Riding and digging with DOD and GOATS
Local photographer and videographer Chad Sageser created this video showcasing the work and fun times of the Greater Oakridge Area Trail Stewards (GOATS) and the Disciples of Dirt.
October 25th—27th, Sisters, Oregon
For everyone who gave up a weekend or day off to improve our local trails ...
If you have given back to the trails this year, you are about to be rewarded! Life Cycle Bike Shop and Ninkasi Brewing want to thank all of our wonderful volunteers with a day of demos, shuttles, food and beer. It's all happening Saturday October 19th at the Red Covered Bridge in Westfir. Several other companies are jumping on board to sponsor this event including Kona who will be on hand with a fleet of their latest bikes to demo. Oregon Adventures will provide all-day shuttles on the Alpine Trail.
After a fun day of riding there will be a BBQ at the Westfir Lodge with beer provided by Ninkasi. There will also be a raffle with fabulous prizes donated by Shimano, Niterider, Endura, Deity and J & B Importers.
If you attended a DOD or GOATS trailwork session this season and signed in/logged your hours, you will be on the invite list ... so come on out to Westfir and join the party!
After 20 years a renegade trail system is legalized and ready for improvements
On August 29th the DOD received notice that we successfully made it through the appeal period of the Environmental Assessment (EA) process and are now able to move forward with plans to sign the area, build new trails, and improve riding opportunities in the Carpenter Bypass (Whypass) trail system. Thanks to everyone who was instrumental in the whole process ... from scratching out those first few trails 20 years ago to working with the land managers though all of the bureaucracy ... it took a ton of work, dedication and patience to make happen.
DOD helps spread the good word: Oakridge is awesome!
M...B...O. Just three letters. Just three letters that mean three of the greatest days of mountain biking you’ll ever have. That’s all MBO is.
Mountain Bike Oregon the brainchild of our friend Randy Dreiling. It’s his vision of what an MTB festival should be: laid back, worry free, fun, tiring, exciting, big enough to be rowdy when you want it and small enough to feel like just an MTB party with old (and new) buds. The only way you could make it more fun is to add a fourth day! At MBO you get all the food, suds and trail your brain, legs and smile muscles can handle. It’s really as simple as choose the ride you want, get on a bus, ride the trail ... repeat. Maybe throw some of the included pancakes, free beer, prime rib, mini-bike racing and brownies in there at some point, but those are the icing on the singletrack cake that is Mountain Bike Oregon.

Dirt Rag magazine recently featured a write up of MBO and gave the event, and the DOD guides, a big thumbs up. There is still time to register for August MBO ... the most fun mountain bike weekend you'll ever have!
