Trans Cascadia 2016

Posted on in category Biking

This is an interesting event taking place in Oregon starting today. In it’s second year, all 100 spots have been filled.  Wondering who from Bend is participating??? From what we could find on the website it’s a little elusive as to the route and course length. And hey, it’s ok to keep it that way. Check out a video of last year’s day 1 for a little break from the work week! 

Riders embark on a unique backcountry mountain bike experience in the misty mountains surrounding Oakridge, Oregon.

The Trans-Cascadia is a blind-format, backcountry race in the wilderness and small towns of Cascadia, USA. It includes 4 days of racing and a curated backcountry experience of primitive single-track, gourmet food, and social activities provided by the hosts.  

32,000ft of descending on unknown trails, the riders discover the magic that comes from venturing into the unknown with your closest friends and fellow competitors.
