Whychus Creek, Sisters, OR


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 will be 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!

The old campsite on Lake Creek near Camp Sherman, the traditional location for Fall Barbie Camp, has now been blocked off. Henceforth Fall BC will be held at the SAME LOCATION AS SPRING BARBIE CAMP—closer to Sisters on Whychus Creek.

More Information: check the forum closer to the date for more details and chatter about this event.
