StartWe have an awesome course designed with gorgeous ocean views, meadows, sick down hill, gnarly single track, killer climbs, and what’s sure to be a wet & muddy course!

This event is brought to life by a public-private partnership in the true spirit of community. Bike Newport, the Newport News-times and other local volunteers are volunteering alongside staff from the Newport Parks and Recreation Department to breath new life into this old race, formerly known as the Ben Eder Memorial.

Proceeds from the event will go towards the youth programs scholarship fund at the Newport Recreation Center. Which allows children from economically disadvantaged households the opportunity to participate in a number of fantastic programs.

The Coast Hills Classic is proud to be a part of the Oregon Off-Road Series and the Junior MTB Series.  We are race #3 in the Oregon Off-Road Series and #2 in the Junior MTB Series.  The Junior Series is designed to encourage junior riders and teams to participate in races over an entire season.
