Start Location

Beargrass Bicycles, Hood River, OR

Ride Description

This supported overnight trip will begin in Hood River. Our route up to the 44 Trails network will include a mix of short sections of pavement, singletrack trail, and dirt fire road. We will plan on camping in the Knebal Springs Campground. We start the Sunday with a loop on the 44 Trails, possibly including the 8-mile loop or the 450 trail. We will then make our way back toward Hood River via Surveyors Ridge Trail, the Kitchen Sink trails, and then a climb up and over Middle Mountain via Gilhouley Rd. Mountain bikes are recommended for this ride.

This is a supported overnighter. Each participant will be able to have a bag of clothes, sleeping items, and supplies shuttled from Beargrass Bicycles to the campground location. We will also have extra water at the campground. We will supply some dinner and breakfast options but those with specific dietary restrictions should consider bringing there own food items. Participants should plan to supply there own mid-ride snacks.

We also encourage those with significant others, partners, and/or kids who cant make the ride to meet at the campground and participate in the camping portion.

This ride is open to everyone. There are no costs or fees but we recommend that you register for this ride beforehand by calling Beargrass Bicycles at 541-436-4591 or sending an email to beargrassbicycles@gmail.com

Spring Bike Swap

Beargrass Bicycles will be hosting its first annual Spring Bike Swap Saturday March 5th, 9am – 1pm. Bring your bikes that you are ready to pass on to their next home. We are looking for road bikes, mountain bikes, gravel bikes, kids bikes and accessories. If you have a vintage or project bike, please keep them at home for another time.

This is a free event. Bring your bikes in the morning and stick around. Its recommended the seller be present to answer any questions about their bike, especially if they have an OBO price tag. If you are not present, please pick up your bike and gear by 5 PM on Saturday Mar 5, or it will be donated.

Please have bikes and gear in sellable and clean condition. All bikes sold are eligible for 10% off labor of standard tuneup.

We hope to see you there. Stick around for refreshments and snacks as we celebrate the new space and the season ahead of us.

Consignment bikes now available

If you are in the market for a new to you bike, be sure to check out the used bikes we have to offer. We hand pick bikes that are in excellent working condition. All used bikes sold at Beargrass Bicycles will be running smoothly and ready to ride. Fresh tune-ups and parts replaced will already have been completed to ensure a safe ride.

We see all too often customers excited about their newly purchased used bike upset that the bearings or suspension are shot, wheels can no longer be tensioned properly, or drivetrains are worn and in need of replacement. These repairs can quickly add another couple hundred dollars to the bike purchase fee or leave you stranded on the trail if not addressed.

Our available bikes will always be changing so it is best to stop in to see the most recent availability. See what bikes are available at https://www.beargrassbicycles.com/consignment-sales/
