WHAT TO EXPECT
Mountain Bike Oregon features three supported days of incredible single-track riding in the Willamette National Forests of western Oregon. You choose which ride you want to do each day, then board one of our classic school buses or vans to be shuttled to the trailhead.
Our MBO Guides are highly trained and will be with you on the trail to keep you on track, build the stoke, guide the way, offer encouragement & assure you have an amazing time! These guides train throughout the year, ride the trails often, are First Aid/CPR certified, and we put at least 3 on every ride (The Rabbit in the lead, the Middle guide for support, and the Sweep to assure everyone stays on trail and give extra encouragement to those that may need it).
