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.

Trailwork-Sat. Feb 11

All are welcome to join a trail work party for the new Cloverpatch Connector trail this Saturday. We’re setting aside the bridgework for the moment and focused on building the trail out to a second big bridge site and can use as many hands as possible.

We meet up at the Lowell Covered Bridge at 9:00am and drive to the work-site from there. Or if you live in Oakridge, you can meet us at the quarry near the bottom of Cloverpatch Trail off of road 5826.

We will be building new trail in rugged country on steep side slopes. Wear appropriate gear for working in the woods in winter, including sturdy shoes, long pants, gloves, hardhat and extra layers of clothing. Tools and hardhats will be supplied if needed. Bring some food and water to get you through the day.

Cloverpatch Trailwork-Sat. Jan.28

All are welcome to join in for a Cloverpatch trail build day. We will be clearing corridor and cutting new trail to access the north bridge site.

Meet at 9 am at the Lowell Covered Bridge.

Wear appropriate gear for working in the woods, including sturdy shoes, long pants, gloves and a hardhat. Tools and hardhats will be supplied if needed. Bring some food and water to get you through the day. We will have light snacks and refreshments at the end of the workday. Hope to see you there. 

New Year-New Names

To start off the new year, the club will be changing the names of a few trails to make things more mainstream at Carpenter Bypass. They will at some point be officially adopted by the BLM. Here are the changes:

Your Sister becomes: Uno Mas (top to bottom-including Mom’s Muffins)

Soft Opening becomes:  Whole Nine Yards (just more of it)

Fun Girl Becomes: Fun Times

Mini Skirt Becomes: It’ll Be Great (favorite term used by Chuck Long-who tragically passed away riding at Carpenter’s Bypass)

Eric’s Hole Becomes: Eric’s Drop
