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.

Open Position

Open Position

The Disciples are in need of a new treasurer for the club. This is a board member position, with voting rights and responsibilities.

The accounting duties are not complex. Balancing the books, filing tax forms such as a 990 and CT-12, and keeping the state business registration updated are the main tasks. 

If you are interested in the position, contact me (Lee: club president) at [email protected].

Thanks for your time and consideration. 

Whypass Cleanup: Round Three

Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more! We are SO close to conquering this mess! With one more big team effort, we could have the whole network cleared and open by the end of Saturday. We are looking for certified sawyers again of course, but for all other tasks, no skills are required— just your boundless enthusiasm and strong arms for tossing branches and raking debris.

On Saturday, February 24th we’ll meet at 10 AM at the Whypass south staging area where everyone will grab a tool and get their assignments for the day. In addition to fixing berm damage on Hit Parade, there is still a good amount of work to be done on the trails at the far end of the network. Let’s wrap this up so we can focus on doing the thing we love the most: riding bikes!

Please wear proper PPE as in, sturdy boots, long pants/sleeves, protective eyewear, gloves, and a hardhat if you have one. DOD has loaner hardhats as well as tools, although bringing your garden rake from home will ensure we have enough. If you have a handsaw, throw that in your kit too. Pack water and a lunch; DOD will provide snacks and beverages for everyone afterwards. 

P.S. If you can’t make it to the work parties but would like to contribute financially, click on the donate button above: https://disciplesofdirt.org/donate/ Funds are always needed for gas/chains for the saws, more tools, and food/beverages for our dedicated workers. DOD thanks you for your generosity!

Whypass Cleanup: Round Two

We know it’s a lot to ask for folks to show up two weekends in a row, but the only way we are going to get to ride the trails, is to clear the trails. We made great headway on the storm damage this past Saturday with a veritable army of people sawing, tossing and raking, so let’s keep the momentum up! And if you missed the first work day, here’s your chance to get in on the fun! 

Saturday, February 17th DOD is calling on certified sawyers, swampers, rakers, and limb tossers to meet at the Whypass south staging area at 10 AM and continue where we left off. Hopefully we can start tackling Alpha, Fun Times and the trails at the far end of the network. Please wear proper PPE as in, sturdy boots, long pants/sleeves, protective eyewear, gloves, and a hardhat if you have one. DOD has loaner hardhats as well as tools, although bringing your garden rake from home will ensure we have enough. If you have a handsaw, throw that in your kit too. Pack water and a lunch; DOD will provide snacks and beverages for everyone afterwards. Looking forward to seeing your shiny faces out there again! 

P.S. If you can’t make it to the work parties but would like to help fund the purchase of tools, gas/chains for the saws and food and beverages for our tired workers, click the Donate button above (https://disciplesofdirt.org/donate/). All contributions are greatly appreciated!
