Fall Barbie Camp


Event Date : 
Fri, 10/20/2017 - 10:00am - Sun, 10/22/2017 - 4:00pm
Location: 
Sisters, OR—Whychus Creek

 

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—or even as early as Thursday night— in time to set up camp and get in an extra day of riding. On Saturday there will be a group ride or two on the Peterson Ridge trail network. Unfortunately it's unlikely that our usual Trail 99 ride will be on the adgenda. The trail was burned (again) this summer by the huge Milli Fire that closed Hwy 242 and many of the trails around Sisters. However, there are lots of other ride options in the area including Smith Rocks and all of 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 one of the group rides.

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!

UPDATE: SAME LOCATION!
Good news... we are (probably*) back on for the Whychus Creek location for our gathering. 

* There is a chance that the Milli Fire closure will still be in effect, in which case we will have to relocate BC Base Camp across the road. Be sure to check back here and on the forum for a potential 11th hour Plan B.

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