FAT 55 Oakridge Mountain Bike Marathon
September 13, 2014
FAT 55 is the quintessential Oakridge race: ride the moss covered roots of Salmon Creek, the rocky, rugged and pristine Heckletooth Mountain, the smooth and flowing Aubrey Mountain, the wild and remote Larison Creek, and you finish after climbing up to Larison Rock and descending sweeping fast traverses and sloping switchbacks en route to Greenwaters Park. Come to win and take home the loot, or just for a fun fully supported ride on Oakridge’s best trails.
$1000 cash prize to the fastest man AND woman:
1st place in each age group and singlespeed/unicycle wins $200!
Fresh food by Lion Mountain Bakery, and live music by local musicians including Kelly Thibodeaux and Etouffee, and Felly Smith accompanied by micro brews by Ninkasi Brewing finish the day out nicely.
Camping, riding, local food and beer, the fall colors of the western Cascades, this is Oakridge at its finest. We partner with GOATS (Greater Oakridge Area Trail Stewards), Oakridge’s IMBA chapter hosting Kids Mountain Bike Oakridge the day after the race, it’s a fun weekend for the whole family.
We support: Oakridge and Oregon businesses, artisans, trail building, maintenance, volunteerism, live music, kids riding bikes, organic agriculture, independent media, anti-war movements, open space initiatives, equal rights for all people, commuting by bike, American made products, and all aspects of bike culture. Our affiliates and sponsors are all in one way or another aligned with this initiative. We invite you to check them out, support them, and consider how you may be able to join in.
