Oregon's most popular XC bike race, Memorial Day Weekend. Out of the start racers chase a galloping cowboy shooting blanks. Only in Sisters! The race takes place on my favorite and home trail, the Peterson Ridge Trail. Sisters is a compelling destination, and many young families show up. Pre-ride Friday, race Saturday, family/recovery ride Sunday.
"Race your bike on the beautiful Peterson Ridge Trail in Sisters, Oregon. The Sisters Stampede, now in its sixth year, became the largest cross country mountain bike race in Oregon in 2011, and continues every Memorial day weekend as the largest and one of the best mountain biking experiences of the season. There is something for everyone with 26 different race categories, and a party at the finish line! Mileage options: 12mi. (Novice/juniors), 27mi. (Elite, Expert, Sport, SS, Clydes)"
Enjoy the views without burning your eyes or blurred glasses, courtesty of SweatHawg Headwear.
