About Dirty Freehub
Dirty Freehub is about sharing our passion for high quality gravel bike rides.
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.
