About Dirty Freehub

Our Philosophy

Dirty Freehub is about sharing our passion for gravel cycling. Our core values are to be good stewards of public lands and to have a positive social and economic impact where we ride.

Our routes are “curated” with accurate and detailed route descriptions, pictures, maps, cue sheets and downloadable GPX files. Our routes are all about being adventuresome and scenic, meeting our 5 Star criteria.

We provide routes near our home in Bend, Oregon and in places where we travel: such as Arizona and overseas places like Tasmania.

For an in-depth look at who we are, our philosophy on routes and riding, and our hometown of Bend, Oregon check out this article by our local newspaper, the Bend Bulletin and this article by Bend Magazine.

Dirty Freehub is a not for profit venture.
