Bike festival set for Anthony Lakes

With the rise of mountain biking in Eastern Oregon, a local ski area is looking to keep that trend growing.

Anthony Lakes Mountain Resort announced recently that it will hold its first-ever Mountain Bike Festival on the mountain on Aug. 2. 

Anthony Lakes’ Marketing Director Chelsea McLagan said the celebration of mountain biking at the resort stems from locals taking advantage of the great opportunities in the surrounding region.

“Interest in mountain biking is really increasing in the area,” McLagan said. “We’ve received great feedback already about the biking festival.”

It was a collaboration between three parties — the Wallowa-Whitman National Forest, biking enthusiasts in Eastern Oregon and General Manager Peter Johnson — that were the brains behind the project and helped it launch from an idea into a festival.

After getting it off the ground, Anthony Lakes developed eight miles of single-track trails that are designed for riders of all abilities. 

“People have used Forest Service roads, basically, when they would ride up at the mountain,” McLagan said. “Besides the eight miles of new trails, we’re still in the process of building some new, intermediate double-track trails. There still is quite a bit of snow on the mountain. but we’re hoping to get some of those put in before the festival.”

The festival goes from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., and will feature an assortment of entertainment. Guided rides will be offered for beginners to introduce them to the new trails. There will be barbecue and Barley Brown’s Beer to enjoy, and giveaways from sponsors such as Mountain Works and Jamis Bikes.
