Did you know? Beer + Bikes = Bend. Ergo, we’ve created this 3-day Beer Bike Tour just for you.
After all – we’ve got the perfect mix of sweet singletrack and thirst-quenching brews in the recreation capital of Oregon. This weekend tour allows you to ride all day, and then enjoy beer tastings and dinners at a variety of Bend’s best craft breweries. In fact, you’ll sample beer from up to ten different local breweries. Yes, really. We are not joking!

Low intermediate to expert. With hundreds of miles to choose from, there is something for everyone. We will have plenty of guides on each tour to help customize rides for all riders.
Terrain & Trails
Trails range from smooth, fast and fun to rocks, roots, logs and jumps. We’ll sample some or all of it. Terrain ranges from high alpine and old growth forests to high desert pine trees.
Recommended Clothing & Gear
Prepare for three full days of riding, so bring adequate clothing and hydration pack. Bend is an outdoorsy mountain town, calling for casual clothing for hanging out in town.
