About Dirty Freehub

Two bike riders on gravel road.Dirty Freehub is about sharing high quality bicycle rides. We focus primarily on gravel rides, but we do like the exceptional road and mountain bike rides.

You will find many rides from near our home in Bend, Oregon.  But we also include places where we travel:  Northern California, Arizona, and overseas places.

We provide accurate and detailed route descriptions with pictures, color coded maps, cue sheets and downloadable GPX files. What we like to call “curated” routes. We are focused on rides that are adventuresome and scenic and meet our 5 star criteria.

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.


Our Newest Rides

Bend, Oregon
14 miles / 500 feet
Mixed

Bend has a number of super secret little paths, many of them are gravel and a few follow canal roads. So while this route isn’t in the mold of one of our classic five star rides, we recommend you give it a go.

Bend, Oregon
53 miles / 4500 feet
Gravel (mostly)

A remote and demanding ride with unparalleled beauty. It explores the “Horn” of the Metolius river — the area defined by a sweeping 25 mile bend in the river.

Sun Valley, Idaho
44 miles / 1800 feet
Gravel

We’ve seen few places with such an impressive valley …. surrounded by mountains, following a river, and looping around miles of cattle ranching. You can watch real cowboys herd cows with cattle dogs.
