Please Join Us for Spring Barbie Camp!
The days are getting longer and the snow is starting to recede … which means it’s time to put away the skis and boards and dust off those bikes! Let’s kick off the riding season by heading over to the east side for a fun-filled weekend of mountain biking, camping, eating, drinking and hanging out around the bonfire!

We’ll be staged among the ponderosas on beautiful Whychus Creek, across Three Creeks Lake Road from the Peterson Trail Network (See below for directions). People usually arrive Friday … or even as early as Thursday … and do their own thing. Saturday and Sunday there will be group rides on the Peterson Ridge network and/or some of the other Central Oregon trails. Saturday night will be a potluck dinner, a giant bonfire and refreshments provided by one of our awesome beer sponsors.

This is disbursed camping, so there will be no picnic tables or potable water although DOD will arrange for a port-a-potty. So bring a warm sleeping bag, a camp chair and something to share for the potluck, and get ready for some fun!

Saturday Riders: If you are just planning to come for the day to ride with the group, we try to roll out of camp around 10:30 am. Be sure to arrive with enough time to kit up and be ready to pedal.
