You probably don’t know there are 11 miles of new, professionally-built singletrack trails open and ready to ride on Oregon’s southern coast just north of Bandon. And that’s why the Whiskey Run MTB Festival exists: to help you discover one of Oregon’s best-kept riding secrets. That’s also why we’ve teamed up with local businesses and tourism promoters to help spread the word about it.

The inaugural event is on June 9th and consists of a ride in the morning (three routes to choose from) and a big afterparty celebration at Bandon Brewing Company. The rides are lead by members of the Wild Rivers Coast Mountain Bicycling Association.

What’s even better about this new trail system is that it’s only about one-third complete. With 30 miles planned for the next three years of building, this is sure to become a major destination for mountain biking lovers of all ages and abilities. The Festival on June 9th is your chance to be one of the first to experience what locals call, “Ribbons of clay dirt that wind through the mists of the coastal forest.”
