Come join us for our Annual September weekend on beautiful Orcas Island! We will be riding and working on the amazing trails in Moran State Park. With the trails re-opening on September 15th after the Summer closures we will be sending in a crew to work on the trails! This event is free and open to all ages and abilities. Free camping will be provided. This gathering is a long-standing (20ish years) tradition, which includes many groups of Mountain bikers from around the PNW. This is an amazing example of how the volunteer trail work of mountain bikers has re-opened trails which were once closed to us.
There is a limited number of spots at the camp ground so people that are interested must RSVP! To RSVP email Mitch Lee at [email protected]
with your name, contact info, and what nights you plan on staying. Those that email will get more details on the camp spot and logistics for the work party!
We have free camping available in the park on Friday and Saturday night, September 22nd — 24th. This camp is drive-up and has drinkable water and bathrooms. This is a very casual weekend, with a trail work and riding happening both Saturday and Sunday. Participants should expect to work a total of 8 hours through the weekend. There are several good food options in East Sound (20ish minutes from camp), as well as a grocery store, gas station, etc. You can now reserve Ferry spots, see ferry link below.
