In Oregon, a bicycle is legally considered a vehicle, and the same Oregon road laws apply. Please “be seen” and practice safe riding. Vehicle traffic, farm equipment and narrow shoulders exist on many Oregon roads, and you may find that construction projects, traffic or other events may cause road conditions or signage to differ from the map results, ride descriptions and directions. For travel options plus weather and road conditions, visit tripcheck.com, call 511 (in Oregon only), 800.977.6368 or 503.588.2941.

Location: Sisters, OR
Join the Disciples of Dirt for a fun-filled weekend of riding, camping, eating, drinking and hanging out with friends.
The dispersed campsite on Lake Creek near Camp Sherman, the traditional location for Fall Barbie Camp, has now been blocked off. Henceforth Fall BC will be held at the same location as Spring Barbie Camp—closer to Sisters on Whychus Creek.
Saturday and Sunday there will be group rides. On Saturday we usually shuttle Trail 99, and there are plenty of other fun rides in the area as well. Saturday night will be a potluck dinner (where the food is always amazing), followed by a giant bonfire.
We will be in a disbursed campsite so there’s nothing there—no picnic tables, no drinking water, no permanent bathrooms. DOD will arrange for a portapotty plus we’ll build big bonfires in the evenings … and we’ll have beer provided by one of our awesome sponsors. You are responsible for anything else you need. So bring a warm sleeping bag and a drinking mug, and get ready for a good time!
