  • 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!

  • Riding clothes for three days of riding. Weather can be variable, bring a layer just in case.
  • Bathing suit for the river.

  • A great attitude, open to meeting new people and having a great time!
  • 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.

River City Bicycles shares their 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.
  • Phone charging station.
  • Porta potties with handwashing stations.
  • Mechanics to help with MBO caused bike mechanicals.
  • 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.
