2024 Hop Head Hundred

The "Hop Head Hundred" starts and ends in historic Independence, Oregon, the former "Hop Capital of the World". Each route meanders over backcountry roads, with regular views of the Coast and Cascades mountain ranges. As you ride between each supported aid station, you'll pass by active hop farms that put this area of the state on the map, and each route involves a climactic crossing of the mighty Willamette River via the iconic Buena Vista Ferry.

The Hop Head Hundred, presented by Pacific Source Insurance, is an annual fundraiser for the Oregon MTB League. The Oregon Interscholastic Cycling League was founded in 2017 as a non-profit 501(c)3 Project League of the National Interscholastic Cycling Association (NICA). They facilitate youth development through the sport of mountain biking for 6-12th graders and provide the education, training, licensing, and insurance for coaches and volunteers. They also produce high-quality mountain bike events that emphasize the value of participation, camaraderie, positive sporting behavior, and well-being over competition for over 300 youth athletes statewide.
