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.

Join us for the eighth edition of the Six Hours of Mt Hood – XC Mountain Bike Endurance & Relay Race!
Come race – as a two-person team or solo – with hundreds of other mountain bike enthusiasts, for six hours straight, on a fun and varied loop at the Skibowl Mt Resort (Government Camp, OR).
The 6-mile course features plenty of fun, twisty singletrack trails through beautiful forests. The estimated elevation gain per lap is about 800′. Each lap, racers will get treated on great views of Mt Hood, a fully-stocked aid station, free mechanical support, non-stop race announcing & music and a ton of cheers from their fellow racers.
On Sunday morning, we’ll serve free coffee and hot Bob’s Red Mill steel cut oats. At the end of the event, racers will enjoy a free post-race chili meal, $1 beers, courtesy of our beer sponsor Hopworks Urban Brewery, and a free entry in our post-race raffle. The start/finish area is at Skibowl West, right next to the main parking lot (right off Highway 26) so you’ll have easy access to your car in between laps.
