FAT 55 Mountain Bike Marathon is the quintessential Oakridge mountain bike race: Pedal through the mossy, rooty eden of Salmon Creek. Climb to the summit of Dead Mountain, descend the flow trail into the smooth meadows of Flat Creek, climb to the summit of the rocky, rugged and pristine Heckletooth Mountain. Descend the craggy top and the fast, smooth, flowing Aubrey Mountain section of the Eugene to Crest Trail. Come to win some loot, or just for a fun fully supported ride on Oakridge’s best trails.
Hot Cajun food by Lion Mountain Bakery, and live music by local musicians Kelly Thibodeaux and Etouffee, and Felly Smith accompanied by tasty brews by Oakridge Concerts in the Park fill your belly and satisfy the soul. Camping, riding, cajun food and swamp rock, 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 to host Kids Mountain Bike Oakridge the day after the race, it’s a fun weekend for the whole family.
We support: Oregon and Oakridge businesses and artisans, trail building and maintenance, volunteerism and volunteers, live music, kids riding bikes, organic agriculture, independent media, anti-war movements, open space initiatives, equal rights for all people, commuting by bike, and unique well designed products.
Sign up, have fun, support something with grass roots, that’s local and positive!
