Sisters, OR—Exact location TBA


You know the drill: Bikes, Bonfires, and Brews. Yes indeed folks, it’s time for Fall Barbie Camp!

Please join the Disciples of Dirt for a fun-filled weekend of riding, camping, eating and drinking over on the east side in sunny Sisters, Oregon. 

Folks start arriving sometime on Friday either in time to ride or in time to imbibe some delicious microbrew courtesy of one of our awesome sponsors. On Saturday many of us will shuttle and ride Trail 99 which starts up near Three Creeks Lake and drops down through the Pole Creek Fire burn and Manzanita Ridge, into the Peterson Ridge network and ends back in camp. Check out the ride report from a couple of Spring Barbie Camps ago here: http://wheelsandwater.blogspot.com/2015/05/trail-99-sisters-or.html There are all kinds of other ride options in the area too, including the Peterson Ridge network, Smith Rocks and the trails in Bend. If you aren’t arriving until Saturday morning, plan to be there by 9:30 am if you want to join in on the Trail 99 shuttle.

Saturday night will be a potluck dinner (where the food is always amazing), and a keg or two of beer. Afterwards we’ll hang out and socialize around the usual giant bonfire and raffle off the Barbie Bike. The DOD branding irons will be there so if you have any items you want branded, bring 'em.

Sunday is rider’s choice—people usually break into small groups and do their own thing. 

We are typically in a disbursed campsite with no picnic tables or drinking water, although DOD will arrange for a port-a-potty. So bring a warm sleeping bag, a drinking mug, and your camp chair for hanging out around the fire, and get ready for a good time!

Last April, right after Spring Barbie Camp, the dispersed campsite on Whychus Creek was closed to camping. The old campsite on Lake Creek near Camp Sherman, the previous location for Fall Barbie Camp was blocked off a couple of years ago. We are now searching for a new location for our gathering. We'll anounce where the new BC base camp is to be as soon as we have details. Stay tuned!
