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.

#McKenzie Strong

#McKenzie Strong

As everyone knows, the beautiful McKenzie River valley was devastated by fire on September 7th. None of the trails we love were affected, but the community that manages the trails was ripped apart. Currently only one school teacher in the area still has a home standing. Most Forest Service employees are displaced and lost their homes. Many folks lost everything and many of them do not have enough insurance to cover replacement costs. Please help the community get back on its feet by purchasing #McKenzieStrong clothing which will raise funds for the McKenzie Community Development Corp (CDC). Money from the fundraiser will assist in covering the cost of rebuilding starting with cleaning home sites to helping those who FEMA denies funding. The goal is to raise $50,000 (or more!). Please share this with as many people as you can. The web store (https://shop.spreadshirt.com/mckenzie-strong/) has short/long sleeve shirts, riding tops, hoodies, and hats for men, woman and kids in tons of different styles and colors.#McKenzieStrongFire photo by The Register Guard.

Local Trails Are Opening Back Up

After three weeks of closure due to wildfires of many Oregon forests, things are slowly opening back up. The Willamette National Forest, except for fire closure areas, is now open. This means that Middle Fork District trails around Oakridge are open but McKenzie River trails such as King Castle and O’Leary are still closed. Also many local BLM trails have opened including Whypass and Alsea Falls. The Siuslaw National Forest is open including Cape Mountain and Cummins Creek. ALL campgrounds in the Willamette and Siuslaw NF remain closed. Know that there will be some (potentially a lot) of blowdown on the trails from the wind event on Labor Day. Be sure to check the Willamette National Forest website or Facebook page for changes and up to date conditions.

Loggers plan to resume operations on July 25. They will start yarding logs from Fungirl and hopefully finish the job soon. Meanwhile, be safe and give them some distance.
