Mountain Bike Oregon Packing Details

  • All tents, RVs, trailers, and vans will fit in our campground! There are no length limitations.
  • Camping is spread out over 80 acres on an almost flat field. All camping is off the grid, with no water or electricity hookups available. If you have a generator, please turn it off between 9 PM – 7 AM.
  • All the bedding, sleeping bags, rain covers (dew in the morning), shade structures (sun during the day), pillows, etc that you will need.
  • Camp chairs.
  • No fires are allowed, please leave your firewood at home.
  • We recommend checking the weather for Westfir, Oregon before packing to ensure you have the right clothing!
  • Your MBO attire – Shop ahead on our online store to have your MBO gear shipped to you before the event.
  • Riding clothes for three days of riding. Weather can be variable, bring a layer just in case.
  • Bathing suit for the river.
  • Camp clothes including hot/warm weather day clothing and evening/morning layers for when it cools down (always check the weather for Westfir when packing for MBO).
  • Saturday evening Luau attire!
  • Toiletries.
  • Headlamp for evenings around the festival grounds.
  • Towels for drying off after swimming in the river.
  • A cooler with ice to keep extra food & beverages is a good idea.
  • Any additional food items you will want/need to supplement meals & snacks. Especially if you have dietary restrictions.
  • Sunblock & Tecnu.
  • Cash for food carts and to tip your beer server – both Friday & Saturday night servers are raising funds for local trail organizations.
  • Luau garb to enhance your Saturday night attire.
  • If you don’t drink coffee, bring your own tea for the mornings (hot water is available from Nossa Familia coffee) – a Hydroflask cup is included in your festival pass.
  • A great attitude, open to meeting new people and having a great time!
  • DOGS – please leave your dog at home. If you must bring your dog with you, it must be on leash and with its owner at all times. You may not leave your dog at camp all day while you ride. There isn’t much shade to safely leave your pet. 
  • Your mountain bike ready for all-mountain and/or cross country riding. We recommend tuning your bike up prior to MBO to ensure no avoidable mechanicals take place during the event.
  • Extra tubes or tubeless sealant, chain links, derailleur hanger or other extra parts you wish you brought with you.
  • Your helmet, gloves and riding glasses.
  • Hydration pack large enough to carry a days ride worth of water, your lunch and spare parts.
  • Any body protection you want to wear.

Top pre-MBO tips to ensure you have a trouble-free weekend:

  • Brake pads and rotors: Check and/or change before the event. One of MBO’s most popular trails, Alpine, is basically a 14-mile descent. You don’t want to learn the hard way that you ran out of pads as you are bombing downhill toward a switchback.
  • Tires: New Tires are one of the most immediate improvements you can feel. Worn-out tires are more likely to flat and lose tractions. The trail conditions in mid-June are typically a mix of tacky and dry/loose soil. Popular tires for Oakridge/Westfir trails are the Maxxis Minion, Maxxis Ardent, or WTB Vigilante.
  • Tubeless sealant: Tubeless sealant dries out in 6-8 months. If you don’t remember the last time sealant was added to your tires, top off the sealant.
  • Chains and drivetrain components: These are vital to make sure you can pedal your bike. Your local bike shop should have a chain checker tool that measures its lifespan.
  • Derailleur hanger: These are bike model specific, so make sure you have an extra. They are small and easy to keep in your pack.
  • Freshwater to fill your water bottles and hydration packs.
  • Coffee and hot water during breakfast – and a Hydro Flask cup to use all weekend.
  • Phone charging station during Registration open hours – at the Registration booth.
  • Porta potties with handwashing stations.
  • Mechanics to help with MBO caused bike mechanicals – Look for the Ding Ding booth.
  • Food carts on-site for dinner and afternoon snacks (bring cash but cards accepted as well).
  • Breakfast will be provided by the local The Campfire, home of Cowgirl Cook’n each morning from 6:30 AM to 9:00 AM.
  • Lunch will be a pre-packed bagged lunch of a sandwich (lunch meat or peanut butter & jelly), chips, fruit, & a bar. Pick you lunch up daily between 7-9am in the shuttle area at the blue food cart.
  • Ice to refill coolers will be available at Westfir Lodge across the covered bridge for sale.
