Ride and Dig

A Regenerative Mountain Biking Experience

This three day mountain bike adventure combines guided rides with trail work to promote sustainable trails and enhance recreational opportunities for others.

A partnership between Cog Wild, COTA, VisitBend and LOGE.

Experienced guides from Cog Wild will select appropriate routes for you to explore & enjoy the amazing mountain bike trails around Bend. Then leaders from the Central Oregon Trail Alliance (COTA) will explain and lead discussions about trail design, our unique high desert ecosystem, sustainable forestry, and stewardship of our recreational resources.

Our trails are built and maintained by volunteers — thank you for your interest in supporting sustainable trails in Central Oregon!
