OT Long-2.png

The point-to-point format of Oregon Trail takes you deep into the wild west of the Cascades and nightly bike camp culture gives you the luxuries and camaraderie needed to keep you pedaling strong each day.

At the Oregon Trail Gravel Grinder, Team Breakaway is there to provide complete support both on and off the bike so you can focus on completing your ride of a life time!


Hot Breakfast & Dinner Buffets

Delicious meals mean you can get excited about fueling for your adventure!  Spin Catering knows how to feed hungry athletes, offering vegan and gluten-free options as well!


Power Charging

Power charging stations will be available at each camping location- adhesive labels provided at Packet Pick-Up can be used to identify your cords and devices.  

Verizon & US Cellular signals are available at most camping locations. 


Gear Tote

Every rider receives a Gear Tote at packet pickup to pack and carry all of your gear. Totes are 40-gallon size, max 50 lbs, 36" long, 20" wide, 15" deep.

Gear tote and one spare wheelset are transported daily to camp.  Riders who need more than one tote bin to fit all their gear can purchase an extra tote bin with the Gear Tote Add On available for $50.


Extra Camping Packages

We have two packages to make sure the friend or family member who supports you can enjoy all the amenities of camp including meals, drinks, and fun!

Non-Rider Camping Package is for riders bringing a friend or family member that is driving their own car but staying with the rider in their tent (or even pitching their own tent)



Bringing your own Camper/Van is also an option for riders that have someone bringing their RV or springer van (no trailers) and includes nightly parking and a meal for one-non rider as well as all the amenities of camp.

Every night camp will be set up in a grassy location with hot showers and restrooms nearby.

VIP Tent Service $200 (sleeps up to 2 people)

Mechanics Corral

Need your steed looked at after a long day in the saddle?  We'll have top-notch mechanics on-site to fix any issues you may have picked up along the way.


Snack Shack

When you hop out of the saddle, we'll have the Snack Shack open and ready for you to grab a sandwich, chips, cookies, and all the goodies that will refuel you as you get into camp. 


Hot Coffee & Cold Beer! 

When we say that we make sure you have everything for your adventure experience, we mean it.  Hot gourmet coffee will help you wake up in the mornings and cold, tasty beer will be poured every night at camp.

Camp Night 1

Camp Gilchrist.JPG

Gilchrist, Oregon

Gilchrist, in northern Klamath County, located along U.S. Highway 97 about fifty miles south of Bend, was the last industrial company town in Oregon owned entirely by a family. Located in the Deschutes National Forest, the town was built to accommodate the factory, workers’ housing, and commercial facilities for the Gilchrist Timber Company.  We will be camping in this beautiful town on the school field.  The school was built as a New Deal Public Works Administration project in 1939. Every five years, the company repainted the houses and shopping complex “Gilchrist Brown.” For decades, the town’s population remained at around 600 people.

Nightly camp spots will be set up in a grassy location with hot showers and restrooms nearby. On mornings 2 and 4, you'll pack up your gear and drop it off for us to transport to the next spot.  When you finish for the day, you can pick up your gear from our transport trucks and get your camp set up.  


Be sure to check out the VIP Camping service where, for only $200, we'll provide the tent and daily set-up and tear-down so you won't have the think about it before or after your ride.

Camp Night 2 & 3

Oakridge Greenwaters Park

You get two nights in this beautiful camping spot. Greenwaters Park offers exquisite views of the clean, green Willamette River. Miles of lawn, huge fir trees located along the beautiful river make this camp location so good we had to double down for two nights.  Oakridge is known as one of the best mountain biking destinations in North America but we have a little secret.  The gravel is just as good.  Shhhh.  Don’t tell anyone.  Nightly game time, cold New Belgium Beer, fire pits and marshmallow roasting will be on tap as you relax and recover for the big push on day four back over the Cascade Mountain Range.

Camp Night 4


McKenzie Community Track & Field Grounds

Camp McKenzie is located in the tiny community of Blue River, Oregon a stone through away from the McKenzie River.  Surrounded by thick forests you will experience the lush green of the Willamette National Forest.  If this is your first time on the Trail get ready to settle in for some great food and relaxation.  In addition, we will have games set up for your entertainment like axe throwing and corn hole for anyone who has a little spunk left.  A walk down to the McKenzie River and soaking those tired legs in the clear cold waters will help revive any rider.
