Beginning Mountain Bike Ride
May 20, 2017 @ 8:30 am - 10:30 am
Join the Deschutes Land Trust and Bob Woodward for a 5-6 mile mountain bike ride in Skyline Forest. This ride is open to beginner-level* riders who want to explore the crowd-free riding of Skyline Forest while learning about the potential trail network that could connect Bend and Sisters. From freshwater springs to historic lumber mills, riders will experience firsthand why the Land Trust is working to protect Skyline Forest, Bend’s backyard. Registration is required and opens 1 month prior to the event. Please register online at www.deschuteslandtrust.org/hikes.
*Beginner-level riders are riders in good physical condition and comfortable riding on singletrack and dirts roads. Riders should be able to ride over loose gravel and small obstacles in the trail such as roots and vegetation. This ride does not take place on smooth, well-packed trails. It is a mix of logging roads and trails with some climbs and descents.
Rating: This is a beginner, 5-6 mile mountain bike ride.
What to bring: Your bike, helmet, a bike repair kit, and plenty of water and snacks. Dress for the weather.
