Ride the Dirt Wave
Klootchy Creek ~ Whiskey Run ~ Newport
Ride the Dirt Wave was created to showcase mountain bike trail systems on the Oregon Coast. Each location has active bike clubs and trail builders that have been working hard to build these awesome trails. We work directly with the members of the clubs and they will be our tour guides of the best trails in each region. We welcome everyone to come and see what the Oregon Coast has to offer as we Ride the Dirt Wave!
This year we will be highlighting three trail systems on the Oregon Coast. We start with Klootchy Creek Trails on the North Coast just outside of Cannon Beach & Seaside, off HWY 26. Klootchy Creek has trails for all levels of riders from flowy & fast jump lines on advanced blue & black diamond trails to family-friendly/beginner short and sweet trails, perfect for new riders and little shredders to the session!
Next, we will venture to the South Coast where Whiskey Run Trails await. This purpose-built mountain biking trail system in the Coos County Forest sits between Coos Bay & Bandon. There are trails for all levels of riders from family-friendly/beginner areas to advanced jump lines and Double Black diamond trails.
Our final event will take place in Newport on the Central Oregon Coast. We will spend one day riding the many trails at Wilder where there are plenty of options for beginner to advanced riders. Our race day will take place at the brand-new Big Creek Trails where we will have the Flow Duro Championship event.
Ride the Dirt Wave has the option for two days of riding in each location. Day one has several ride options open to many levels of riders. These rides will be led by the local bike clubs and trail groups that built and maintained the trails. These will be “fun rides” to showcase the favorite trails in the area and be open to a broad range of people. There will be food, beverages, music, and information on the trails, clubs, and local area.
Day two is race day! The Flow Duro Challenge Race is a fun, fast-paced, timed competition down a short, flowy, mostly downhill trail. It combines all of our favorite elements of friendly competition down sweeping trails with a small amount of climbing and a large amount of fun!
Each race takes place at a different location on the Oregon Coast. Every race course will have different terrain, difficulty, length, elevation, & times. There will be two timed runs down the course and the fastest time will be kept. You are encouraged to attend all 3 races to be in contention for the “Champion of the Dirt Wave Series!”
