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.



Due to the heavy damage and unsafe conditions, ACM will remain on the shelf for the immediate future. Look for work parties to form when the BLM gives us the green light to clear the system. Updates to follow. Stay safe out there.

New Rides And Events Coordinator

New Rides And Events Coordinator

Good evening, Disciples! The DOD is excited to announce that Sean Fitzpatrick has taken over as Rides and Events Coordinator on the DOD Board! There are LOTS of rides and trips being planned for this coming year, including a family campout weekend at Lava Lake and a destination ride on another weekend, as well as social meetups, Happy Rides, and more. Here’s Sean’s introduction – give him a big welcome:

My name is Sean Fitzpatrick and I am stepping into the role of Rides and Events Coordinator. First off, I love bikes! I initially got into road biking mainly as part of triathlon, while I was in college, but didn’t really try mountain biking until I moved to Oregon in 2019. After seeing all the amazing single track offerings near me, I finally bought my first full suspension bike in 2021 and from then on I have tried to ride my bike every day that I possibly can. I am passionate about the sport of mountain biking and I love the community and stoke that mountain biking brings with it. I really love riding steep, difficult trails and have recently enjoyed pushing myself to work on bigger jumps and drops, but I am honestly just as happy to pedal some calm miles on XC trails or have laid back social rides. When I’m not riding, I work as an ER nurse and recently my wife, Morgan, and I welcomed our first child, who I cannot wait to introduce to the community through Kid’s rides and other fun events. I enjoy doing trail work and helping out at as many DOD events as possible and I’m stoked to be able to do so in an official capacity. See you on the trails!

Pre-Turkey Day Night Ride on Nov 22

The club’s traditional pre-Thanksgiving night ride at Carpenter Bypass Trail System, (aka Whypass) will be held on the Wednesday night before the holiday. The club will have two “legendary” deep-fried turkeys prepared by club member Paul T. Bring a dish to share, your own beverages. and we’ll see what happens potluck style. This ride is open to all ability levels. Let’s meet at the South Lot of the Carpenter Bypass Trail System. Kickstands up at 6pm for the ride and expect the chow line to commence around 7:15 pm.
