Three Norwegian friends tackle North America’s newest premiere long-distance mountain bike route, the Oregon Timber Trail. Watch their video here and check out their detailed pack list…

Jonas Modin Rismyhr, Andreas Hanedalen, and Amund Hognestad Jensen travelled all the way from Norway to experience the wonders of the Oregon Timber Trail. This 669-mile backcountry mountain bike trail covers the length of Oregon, from California to the Columbia River Gorge in Hood River. It’s a must-ride for those seeking out a challenging singletrack-focused bikepacking route. The group put together this fantastic video of their experience, and we’ve also included Jonas’ detailed pack list, and a gallery of photos from the trip.

For those curious, Jonas and Andreas rode full-suspension Rocky Mountain Instincts, and Amund was on a Trek Slash. The group researched the route this past winter then spent time putting together the necessary gear, with a focus on keeping things as light as possible, while leaving room for their camera equipment. As you can see from their photos, the bikes are very lightly packed and mid-sized backpacks were used to make up for that. The group rode the entire route in just 13.5 days, which is a feat in itself. And they still had time to be pleasantly surprised by the fine folks they met along the way. If you have any other questions for the group, leave them in the comments below.
