Intermediate Mountain Bike Ride
September 3, 2019$65 – $75
Join the Deschutes Land Trust and Jen Zalewski for an 8-12 mile mountain bike ride in Skyline Forest. This ride is open to experienced* riders who want to explore the crowd-free trails of Skyline Forest while learning about the potential trail network that could connect Bend and Sisters. From fresh water 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.
*Riders should be in good physical condition, at least intermediate skill level, and comfortable riding areas of loose dirt and sandy soil, and be able to ride over obstacles in the trail such as rocks and vegetation. This ride does not take place on smooth, well-packed trails. The ride is a mixture of single track and old logging roads with several steeper climbs and descents. Expect trails to be a mixture of hard-packed single track and rocky, loose, sandy soil.
Rating: Challenging, 8-12 mile ride.
What to Bring: Your bike, helmet, a bike repair kit and plenty of water and snacks.
