SBG Fall is a true throwback to your days at your favorite childhood summer camp.  Grab your friends, share cabin space, and get ready to saddle up in beautiful McKenzie Bridge, Oregon. 


Special Blend Gravel Camp is the perfect way to cap off the season with your gravel riding friends and prepare for your 2023 riding and racing goals. You’ll spend three days riding amazing gravel roads in the Willamette Forest, focusing on cornering and descending techniques, learn about tire choice, tubeless setup, PSI, nutrition and recovery, and adventure and race tips & tricks from some of the best in the business of gravel.

Horse Creek Lodge is located on the banks of Horse Creek, a tributary into the mighty McKenzie River, and nestled beneath a forest canopy. The gravel roads that climb up from both sides of the canyon feel never-ending, as they wind their way up to vista points exposing the Cascade Range and the McKenzie River Canyon below. 


Bring your climbing legs to camp, and be ready to make descending your strategic advantage. While there is some flat terrain, we won’t spend much time there- we'll head for the hills!


Are you a seasoned roadie curious about gravel riding, a competent mountain biker looking to rally the double track, or a gravel rider looking to hone your craft? If yes, Special Blend Gravel is for you. We welcome intermediate to advanced riders who are looking to build confidence, refine skills, and find some free speed on through corners and on descents.
