The second mass-start Oregon Outback ride launched this morning from Klamath Falls, Oregon. What has quickly become one of the most popular bikepacking events in the country, the route traces 360 miles northward to the Columbia River.
If you want to see what you’re missing, check out this great recap of the 2014 event from our friends over at Limberlost.
David Klayton also captured his experience last year in this two-part video series:
Best of luck to everyone out there this weekend!
Ira Ryan doesn’t just build some of the world’s nicest custom bikes—first under his own name and now as a partnership with Tony Pereira known as Breadwinner Cycles—he’s also one heck of a fast rider. He twice won the epic Trans-Iowa and when he appeared at the starting line of the inaugural Oregon Outback with a new bike designed especially for events like it, you know it was game on.
Congrats Ira on finishing the 360 miles in just 28 hours.Tweet Print

It hasn’t even begun but the inaugural Oregon Outback bikepacking “race” is quite possibly the most talked-about bikepacking event of the year. Covering 360 miles of dirt, gravel and (probably) mud, the route travels north from Klamath Falls near the California border to the Deschutes State Park along the Columbia River.Tweet Print
