Mountain Bike Adventures in Oregon

Since 2006, Cog Wild has been running mountain bike adventure rides out of Bend and Oakridge and across Oregon. Escape the daily grind and recharge your soul: let Cog Wild show you well known but rarely used trails in the Ochocos, Timpanogas Area, Old Cascade Crest, McKenzie Valley and Mt. Hood Regions.

Ride these trails in two ways: either as big day trips from Bend or Oakridge or as camping or lodge based multi-day trips. Join a like minded group of riders on a prescheduled trip or choose your own dates and we’ll build a private trip for your group of 6 or more riders.

Multiday Mountain Bike Adventures Across Oregon

These are the places we like to go for a long weekend, where we ride get away from the busy-ness of Bend and the shuttle frenzy of Oakridge. We love the adventure: long days in the saddle, quiet time outside and plenty of post ride outdoor fun like swimming holes and waterfall hikes.

Join a prescheduled multiday adventure to ride with like minded folks or rally your crew and pick your own dates for a private tour. A popular choice recently has been for groups to base out of Bend and take day trips to these regions. Call us or submit an inquiry to start discussing your options.
