Sandy Ridge Trail Project

Sun, 12/07/2014 - 9:00am - 2:00pm

NW Trail Alliance (NWTA) will be sending 4 teams of volunteers to key project sites fine-tune NEW trail improvements that were recently built by IMBA’s Trail Solutions expert trail builder, Jason Wells.

This will be a great opportunity to get a close look at the new features being built in November and be part of their final shaping.

To accomplish all the work needed, we need 40 to 50 volunteers.

This will be our last trail project for the season.  So lets make it count.

Our efforts will be enhanced by the additional support of the BLM and multiple event sponsors.

RSVP now!!!  so we can properly prepare and plan for the days activities (tools, equipment, food, and...)

TrailFest 2014 - shuttle day at Sandy Ridge Trails

TrailFest is all about celebrating the mountain biking trails we've got in the Portland area (even if not *in* Portland metro) and looking towards the future of riding bikes in the dirt.   Join us at Sandy Ridge Trail to celebrate one of the regions most epic trail systems for mountain biking.

What is the shuttle day all about?  We'll get you, your bike, and your stuff to the top of Sandy Ridge Trails (from near the parking area)...  You just worry about having a great ride down, and then hop back on one of the trucks to do it again, and again, and again...!

Sandy Ridge Enduro - Mountain Man Challenge

The Challenge

The Fat Tire Farm and Hurricane Racing are taking mountain bike racing back to its roots.  When men and women weren’t pigeon-holed into genres and sub-genres of racing a mountain bike.  Downhilling involved a timed hillclimb.

So here’s the challenge: complete four races across all genres of modern mountain biking.  To be competitive in the overall requires speed going down and up–from flow to technical trails, you’ve got to be able to do it all.  All races carry points toward an overall title.

This race is open to all, and we’d love to see some new faces out there.  In order to make it more accessible, we’ve tried to keep the cost of entry down.  And, you don’t need an OBRA license to race.
