The Disciples of Dirt Mountain Bike Club (DOD) boasts members from all over the Pacific Northwest and beyond, but we focus our efforts within Oregon’s Southern Willamette Valley, where the club was founded and the majority of our membership live and ride. Club members share a high level of passion for mountain biking and the DOD is well known within the cycling world for being stewards of our local trails and champions for improved trail access for cyclists.

Salute To Sponsors

Salute To Sponsors

The club is beginning a weekly “Salute to Sponsors” spotlight on the businesses that have helped support the DoD and its goals. Let’s kick things off with a wonderful local company!

Nothing feels better than a new set of wheels for your bike. Rolf Prima manufactures a great selection of handmade wheels (many of them made right here in Eugene!) that’ll be sure to put a smile on your face for years to come. Road, MTB, gravel, they’ve got you covered. Check out all they have to offer at: https://rolfprima.com/

Clear The Corridor: Ep3

The devastation to the trails in the Oakridge area is just incredible. Here is another great opportunity to help out, and bring this wonderful trails back up to usable condition.

WHAT: Swamping, de-limbing, raking and bucking
WHEN: Saturday, March 30th, 9AM-5PM & Sunday, March 31th 9AM-1PM
WHERE: Meet at the Westfir Portal (Red Covered Bridge across from Westfir Lodge)

Calling all swampers and USFS certifiied sawyers! (That’s pretty much anyone who wants to use our trail system this year… if you can pick up sticks… you’re a qualified swamper!) Now it’s time to give a little #alpinelove back to the #stOakridge crown jewel trail!

This will be a BIG weekend! Mountain Bike Oregon will be joining our party to help make this one of the most fun trail-clearing efforts of the season! We’ll need as many folks as possible to help make our trails shine again on the Alpine system. Depending on the number of folks coming out and where the snow is, we’ll break up into four groups, tackling lower Alpine from the bottom up, starting at FS5828 and Alpine proper, and the Westfir Tie-trail from the Portal. We’ll also assess the need to begin clearing road access to the lower trail system, and take action as we have the resource to do so.

All chain and crosscut sawyers must be USFS certified. Please remember proper PPE (including hard hats, safety glasses and chaps) and make certain your chainsaw is in good working order if you’re bringing one.

PLEASE DRESS APPROPRIATELY for the weather. It’s cold outside – be prepared and dress in layers – include a hat, extra gloves, and extra socks. Wear waterproof, sturdy shoes. Bring a backpack with extra layers and warm work gloves, or glove liners and a water bottle and/or snacks to help you stay warm as you are burning calories. We’ll bring some extra snacks and warm drinks, but it’s important you take care of the basics!

Tools: We will have handwarmers, extra hard hats and tools, but feel free to bring your favorite handsaw, loppers, or rake with you.

Huge thanks to our friends at MBO, we’ll have an amazing taco feed after trail work on Saturday! Sunday’s effort will be shorter, but we’ll will still provide lunch treats and beverages for the after-party. Come one, come all… and let’s make our trails AWESOME again!
