SKULL 120/60 GRAVEL GRINDER

Rugged | Remote | Adventure

Harney County is home to endless opportunity for the self-sufficient backcountry traveler. Visitors who seek challenge and solitude will find these in abundance.

The Skull 120/60 Gravel Grinder route highlights the county’s rugged character which sets rural #EasternOregon apart from the rest of the nation. From long mountainous ascents, to teeth-chattering and eye watering descents, breathtaking vistas, open rangeland, alpine forests, two stream crossings, and – of course – cattle guard after cattle guard, this gravel grind is testament to the rider’s grit and determination.
​Routes traverse miles of Bureau of Land Management and US Forest Service public lands, official sponsors of the Skull 120/60.

For more information and to register, visit the OFFICIAL SKULL 120/60 GRAVEL GRINDER website at https://www.adventureharney.com/

HBBF Raffle Winner

This years raffle winner, Heather, won the amazing Mix Tape Disc wheels made by HI FI. The Mix Tape Disc is a badass, tubeless, disc-specific, 25mm-wide rim (20mm internal width). If you really want to mix it up, the Mix Tape Disc alloy clinchers are light, fast and ultra versatile, thanks to the Fidelity disc hub. Throw em on a disc-brake equipped road or CX bike, or even to serve light duty on your 29er. The wheels convert between quick release and thru-axle, and the QRs and end caps to switch from one to the other are all included. Want to run 11-speed Campy disc, or SRAM XD? You can do that too! Congratulations Heather!

Thank You!

Gofundme for Rudi of Black Magic Paint

Black Magic Painter, Rudi Jung, was in a motorcycle accident and is in the hospital.

Thankfully, Rudi is now medically stable and remains strong and in good spirits. However, the journey ahead will not be an easy one. We are asking for any assistance.  We appreciate your willingness to give. Thank you for being part of Rudi’s journey to recovery!

The donated money will go to physical therapy and rehab needed during Rudi’s recovery, as well as living expenses while unable to return to work. Rudi’s girlfriend, Olivia Harkness, will be assisting with managing the money raised through gofundme.

The OBCA has donated and asks you to consider donating and sharing his page to help in his recovery.

 

Get Belted with Gates at the OBCA’s Bike and Beer Festival

To support OBCA and generate some buzz for the Portland handmade show, Gates Carbon Drive is seeking proposals for unique, curious, innovative or just damn cool belt drive bikes to be displayed at the 2016 Bike and Beer Festival. Want to get belted? Submit your ideas (one paragraph concept is enough) to paul.tolme@gates.com by July 15. Include the subject line: Belted in PDX.

Gates will review all submissions and notify winning builders by July 22. The only requirement is that the bike be displayed at the show, and that winners submit quality photography to Gates for sharing on social media and the Belted Blog. If you have not worked with Gates Carbon Drive before, please review the product line and technical resources at www.gatescarbondrive.com. If Gates accepts your idea, Gates will provide a free system and technical assistance. Gates will debut its new new longer belt lengths (158- and 168-tooth) in Portland, so also send ideas for your longtail cargo bikes or chopper monsters.

Oregon Brewers Win Big at World Beer Cup Awards

Share this:
The Brewers Association (BA), announced the results of the 2016 World Beer Cup Awards (WBC) at the conclusion of the Craft Brewers Conference & BrewExpo America® in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on the evening of Friday, May 6th, 2016.  
 
With the highest number of entries to date, the 2016 edition of the WBC saw 6,596 beers from 1,907 breweries representing 55 countries—a 38.5 percent increase in the number of entries from the 2014 WBC, which had 4,754 entries.  The 253 judges from 31 countries awarded 287 medals across 96 beer style categories.  
 
This year, Oregon’s breweries were awarded 19 medals to 15 Oregon brewing companies, which placed Oregon third amongst U.S. brewers in the number of medals won.  The World Beer Cup Champion Brewery and Brewmaster Award in the Very Small Brewing Company Category was awarded to James Smith of the Arch Rock Brewing Co. in Gold Beach, Oregon. .
 
Items of Note for 2016:
Oregon had the only brewing company to win 4 awards in the competition with Breakside Brewery winning four awards across their two breweries in Portland and Milwaukie, Oregon.
 
Four of the same breweries that were awarded medals at the 2014 WBC, won medals in 2016.
 
The originator of the Cascadian Dark Ale style, Barley Browns Brew Pub, won the gold medal for Turmoil for the second time in a row in the American-style Black Ale Category 94.
 
The Fat Heads Brewery Ohio location that won the Gold medal in the Imperial India Pale Ale (the second largest category) and the bronze for American-style Black Ale also make the same beers at their Portland, Oregon location.
 
Congrats to James and Kristen Smith of the Arch Rock Brewing Company for winning the Champion Brewery & Brewmaster Award in the Very Small Brewing Company Category.  This is the third consecutive World Beer Cup where a small, coastal Oregon brewery has won a Champion Brewery & Brewmaster Award, with the previous two going to the Pelican Brewing Company and their Brewmaster Darron Welch.

A can’t miss opportunity. He’ll be speaking in Portland, OR on Tuesday the 29th of September at 5pm at the Bike Commuter. Come join him for a beer and talk about bikes.
