DOD Happy Ride (Oakridge)
February 27, 2016 from 11:00 am - 4:00 pm
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.

Happy Rides are a monthly mountain bike ride for all abilities – as long as those abilities are single-track-based. DOD selects a location based on the season. It’s a great way to meet new riders in the area and learn about new single-track in your area. The rides are very laid-back. No rider gets dropped. DOD makes sure all rides have a rider who is knowledgeable of the trail. Make sure to bring ride food, appropriate clothing, a big smile, post-ride snacks and beverages, and of course your helmet. Rides may change due to weather.
