About Dirty Freehub
Dirty Freehub is about sharing our passion for high quality gravel bike rides. Our aim is that through good stewardship of pubic lands, collaboration and sharing of routes we can have a positive social and economic impact in the communities we ride.
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.
Dirty Freehub is a not for profit venture. You can learn more about us under the Team tab.
We also lead many gravel rides throughout the year. Our rides are posted on the Bend Area Cycling Enthusiasts group. Look for rides posted by Gravel Girl (aka: LindaE), Captain “O” (aka: KevinE) and AndrewM.
