Upcoming Special Guided Rides

44 Trails Shuttle Day

June 22, 2019

Ride Description:
We will be shuttling up to Mt. Hood National Forest to lead you on a guided ride from Lookout Mountain all the way down to the bottom of Dog River. This excursion includes an expert Guide to lead you down the trail, help with any mechanicals that may occur and ensure pure stoke status throughout the entire trip. We will provide you with a trail side lunch and have snacks and electrolytes to keep you fueled all day. Our Mountain View Cycles shuttle van will drop you at the top of Lookout Mountain Trail and pick you up at the bottom of Dog River Trail. The trip does not include a mountain bike, but you can get a demo bike from Mountain View Cycles for 20% off if you book this excursion.

What to expect from the ride:
The 44 Trails Shuttle Day ride is approximately 23 miles distance with 2,200ft. elevation gain and 5,000ft descent. The trails range from blue to black diamond terrain.
We will have the option for you to be picked up before the Dog River descent (black diamond trail) and shuttled to the bottom to pick up the rest of the group.
This would make your ride 17miles on mostly blue, some black diamond terrain.
