Join the Disciples of Dirt for a weekend of riding, camping, eating, drinking and fun over on the east side in sunny Sisters, Oregon! This is DOD’s annual last blast before the snow and the rain come. Whether you are a newbie to mountain biking, a weekend warrior, or a pro racer … everyone is welcome!
Barbie Camp is held on Whychus Creek, across Three Creeks Lake Road from the Peterson Ridge trail network (see below for directions). People will arrive Friday … or even as early as Thursday … and do their own thing. Saturday we usually do a group shuttle ride on Trail 99 to get some giant views of the Three Sisters. Sunday is rider’s choice with options including the Peterson Ridge network or any of the other Central Oregon trails. Saturday night will be a potluck dinner, a giant bonfire and refreshments provided by our awesome beer sponsor, Oakshire Brewing.
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!
Saturday Riders: If you are just planning to come for the day to ride with the group, we’ll be rolling out of camp at 10:00 am. Be sure to arrive with enough time to kit up and be ready to pedal.

For those who are camping the entire weekend, I will be driving over from Eugene on Saturday morning and have room for about 3 more in the truck.
