The Volstead Rises & A Video!

Ptarmigan Ptrails has been busy this fall busting in some new trails at Whiskey Run. Check out TrailForks for updated maps (be sure to “UPDATE OREGON” in the downloaded regions to get the newest maps). There is a couple new blue and black trails on both the classic side and east side. The Volstead area is accessed from a bridge crossing at the bottom of Wing And A Prayer descent. If you venture that way, expect a fully committed riding day. Certain trails are open to ride (please avoid riding after heavy rainfall and watch out for crews working. Absolutely NO riding closed trails.)

Thanks to Hennick’s Home Center for the Picnic Table

Now when you venture out to Volstead Area you can bring your lunch and enjoy a sweet spot to eat, thanks to Hennick’s Home Center in Bandon. They generously donated a table for the trails and our lead volunteers Jerry Gross and Raleigh (the Ripper) Kraynik (@raleigh_tk) helped bring it in and build it up! Thanks guys for your hard work. Be sure to stop into Hennick’s and say “thanks” from the mountain bike club!

Since you read this far… enjoy a pretty sweet little video from You Tuber BKXC back when Eddie Kessler showed him the ropes this summer. It’s just a dang-good fun place to ride. (Spoiler alert, this isn’t Redbull Rampage)
