Fall Session:

We are offering two programs for specific schools this fall.

Montessori Center of Bend

The Montessori Center of Bend in Northwest Crossing can enroll their riders into Cog Kids and we’ll provide a special shuttle from their school to practice at LOGE. Sign up and details are on the Cog Kids page.

Cascades Academy

Students in grades 4 & 5 at CACO have their own group on Mondays in October. This is a multi-week program but riders may join late with a pro-rate if space allows. Details are below.

GROUP RIDES Develop SKILLS & TEAMWORK

Riders will want to ride at different speeds on different kinds of bikes on different trails, therefore we break into groups each day that accommodate as many preferences as we can.

Goals for our elementary group include:

  • Flexible ride schedule: you choose the dates that work for you!
  • Develop skills on a variety of trails and terrain
  • Introduction & Development of the fundamental skills of mountain biking
  • Enjoy riding bikes after school
  • Practice proper trail etiquette and group riding habits
  • Staff on site will help new riders find an appropriate group while returning riders can continue their skills progressions with their coaches.Create a respectful environment where fellow riders become friends and friends become teammates
Please read our COVID-19 Precautions before booking your reservation.

Mandatory for Participation:

  • Need a fully working mountain bike suitable for riding on a trail
  • Helmet
  • Water in a bottle on the bike or in a pack
  • Come prepared to ride with proper clothing & closed shoes

Highly Recommended:

  • Items are best carried 1) on your bike in a saddle / frame bag 2) waist pack 3) small backpack. Riders do not need huge 100oz hydration packs 🙂
  • Extra tube for your wheel size
  • Multi-tool & Pump
  • Full finger gloves
  • Sunglasses with light lenses — keep out dust and see in the forest

Other Suggestions for Elementary:

  • Get the lightest bike you can afford and opt for the largest wheelsize with the smallest frame that fits your child.
  • Gears not necessary until they’re on 20″ wheels
  • Bikes must have 2 brakes — either both handbrakes or a front handbrake with rear coaster. Coaster brakes are more difficult for proper descending.
