Every day and tour is different. Depending on your riding level, we’ll design a specific tour that includes some of our favorite trails. The selection can include family friendly routes in the Phil’s Trail network to more technical options in the Wanoga Trail network, or alpine trails in the summer accessed high country. Some of our favorite trails are Whoops Trail (maintained by Cog Wild’s owner Lev), Tiddlywinks, Tyler’s Traverse, Flagline, North Fork, Mrazek, Ben’s, Phil’s, COD, KGB, Storm King, Funner and Metolius Windigo. Yeah, just a few…

In Central Oregon, spring and fall are typically pleasant, with daytime temperatures ranging from the low fifties to high seventies and nighttime temperatures dropping into the thirties. However, we do experience unpredictable mountain weather at times that can bring colder temperatures and moisture. In the summer, you can expect temperatures ranging from high seventies to low nineties, with evening thunder showers to dampen the trails.

Check the daily weather for Bend or Oakridge.

Closed toed shoes, polypropylene or light-weight, moisture wicking wool shirts, biking specific gloves, and bike shorts or regular shorts are recommended. Be prepared for the occasional Central Oregon weather change by bringing a light rain jacket or warmer top layer. Jeans and non-athletic shoes are not recommended. Helmets are required and are provided with all rental bikes.

Lunch is provided for full day tours and skills clinics and includes a hearty sandwich from a local bakery, fruit, Picky Bars and other assorted goodies.

Half day tours and skills clinics include snacks like Picky Bars and other assorted goodies.

Multi-day tours will have different meals each day consisting of picnic lunches, BBQ, fajitas, pasta and other scrumptious surprises. We can accommodate all dietary needs including vegetarian, vegan, and gluten or dairy free.

We are mountain bikers: our staff is passionate about riding bikes and the public lands on which we recreate.

We are professional: In addition to our robust annual guide and coach trainings, many of our guides maintain a Wilderness First Responder certification. Some are Wilderness EMTs. Our coaches are certified by the Professional Mountain Bike Instructors Association.

We are part of the community:  Our staff and employees volunteer hundreds of hours to build and maintain trails on the Deschutes and Willamette National Forests. By coming on tour with us, you support our local trail system.

The two choices are to meet us in Bend or meet us at the start location of the tour. Depending on what tour you are interested in, we can help provide information about getting to the start of the tour. Check out our vacation planning page for more information.
