Mountain Bike Adventures in Oregon

In addition to daily operations in Bend and Oakridge, Cog Wild also operates in many other stunning areas in Oregon where we’ve run adventure rides since 2006. Escape the daily grind and recharge your soul: let Cog Wild show you well known but rarely used trails in the Umpqua, Timpanogas, Old Cascade Crest and Mt. Hood Regions.

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 an adventure: long days in the saddle, quiet time outside and plenty of post ride outdoor fun like swimming holes and waterfall hikes.

Ride these trails in two ways: either big day trips from Bend or Oakridge or as camping 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.
