DESCRIPTION

Outdoor City is the multi-sport festival where an anticipated 10,000 outdoors enthusiasts of all ages, abilities and disciplines will descend for three nonstop days in mid-September to ride, run, walk, hike, and hone skills on some of the most spectacular roads, trails and climbs in the country. Not to mention sampling local Central Oregon's famous music, beer & wine, cuisine and nightlife.

Here's what makes OCUSA unique: every attendee gets involved...from ‘try-it’ events to hands-on skills clinics to group rides/runs/hikes, all of it supported by a huge industry expo showcasing—and selling—current and future products.

Scheduled events already include a gravel Gran Fondo; group, family and individual mapped road rides; cyclocross races; cross-country and downhill mountain bike racing; Big Air events and demos; balance bike races for kids; 5 and 10K trail races and fun runs; group and family hikes and events and skills sessions on the massive National Bouldering Championship climbing wall, which is so big it has to be specially brought to the venue by semi truck..
