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.




DOD is always in need of volunteers for trail work, events, communication, and more. Please sign up HERE, and tell us about your skills and interests.

High Cascades Forest Volunteers Fall Training Event.

Come on out and hone your skills or learn new ones. Are you a new chainsaw or cross cut sawyer or would you like more mentoring? Would you like to learn how to manage a saw? Want to learn about power brushing? Crib wall construction? Are you a Forest Service volunteer needing CPR or first aid? If so, come join us.

Any Willamette National Forest group affiliated or new volunteer is welcome. Many groups across the forest will be involved, including GOATS, Scorpions, and Salamanders. Radio training will be offered as well, and there is one spot still available for a crosscut sharpening workshop.

Space is limited so as to allow small numbers for saw mentoring. Preference will be shown to new sawyers. No saw certifications will be offered during this training.

Coffee and danishes will be available at registration, which starts at 8 am. Make your own lunch fixings will also be available prior to 8:30 am departure for trail crews. At the end of the day, we welcome you back to the GOATS shop for a potluck and a chance to share drinks and camaraderie with fellow volunteers across the forest.
October 19th. 8-5pm
GOATS World Headquarters 76248 Industrial Parkway. Oakridge, OR.

Middlefork Reroute Trail

Section of the new reroute trail.

As part of a floodplain restoration plan at the confluence of Coal Creek and the Middle Fork of the Willamette, volunteers spent the weekend working on a reroute of the Middle Fork Trail. In partnership with the Middle Fork Willamette Watershed Council and the USFS, volunteers from the Disciples of Dirt, GOATS, Alpine Trail Crew AssociationTrans-Cascadia and others built a beautiful new section of trail winding through the woods. Sawyers working on incredibly steep terrain cleared a corridor over Coal Butte in preparation for the second half of the reroute to be constructed later this summer. Thanks to everyone who came out and worked so hard, especially those who drove all the way from Portland and Bend. Huge thanks to Nick and Jessie from Trans-Cascadia for feeding our hungry workers.
