Tue 05/01 - Join us on Sunday July 1st for the ninth edition of the Six Hours of Mt Hood , Oregon's marquee Mountain Bike Endurance & Relay Race, presented by Sellwood Cycle Repair!
Come race - as a two-person team or solo - with hundreds of other mountain bike enthusiasts, for six hours straight, on a fun and varied loop at the Skibowl Mt Resort (in Government Camp, OR).
The 5.5-mile course (6.8 miles for solo racers) features plenty of smooth-rolling, twisty singletrack trails through beautiful forests. The estimated elevation gain per lap is about 850' (1,100' for solo riders). Each lap, racers will get treated on great views of Mt Hood, a fully-stocked aid station, free mechanical support, non-stop race announcing & music, and a ton of cheers from their fellow racers.
On Sunday morning, before the race, we'll serve free coffee and hot Bob's Red Mill steel cut oats. At the end of the event, racers will enjoy a free post-race chili meal, $1 beers, courtesy of our beer sponsor Hopworks Urban Brewery, and a free entry in our post-race raffle.
The start/finish area is at Skibowl West, next to the main parking lot (right off Highway 26), so you'll have easy access to your car throughout the day.
