Bend Mountain Bike Shuttles

Cog Wild shuttles are a great way to maximize your time on the bike. With about 3,000′ of elevation gain between town and Mt. Bachelor, visitors and locals can take advantage of a shuttle ride to access higher elevation terrain and ride single track all the way back to Bend.

2022 shuttle season is over.

There is snow on the ground at our location in Bend, Oregon. Shuttles will resume in May, 2023.

Meet at Cog Wild on the edge of town. Jump on the shuttle, which travels up the Cascade Lakes Highway to Wanoga, Swampy or Dutchman Trailheads.

Shuttle riders need to be self sufficient: bring a map and have a route in mind, have a tool kit and first aid kit. Carry enough food, water and clothing to support your time in the woods.

Bend Trails and Trail Forks are great sites for researching trails and ride options. Maps are available to purchase at Cog Wild and we are happy to look at the map with you and suggest routes.
Please stay off middle Flagline until August 15 to give the elk ample time to raise their babies.
