Event description

Description

Join the Deschutes Land Trust and Kelly Madden for a mellow 4-5 mile mountain bike ride in Skyline Forest. This ride is open to beginner-level* riders who want to explore the crowd-free riding of Skyline Forest at a mellow pace, while learning about the wildflowers that bloom every summer in Skyline Forest. From freshwater springs to historic lumber mills, riders will experience firsthand why the Land Trust is working to protect Skyline Forest, Bend's backyard. Registration is required and opens 1 month prior to the event.

*Beginner-level riders are riders in good physical condition and comfortable riding on singletrack and dirt roads. Riders should be able to ride over loose gravel and small obstacles in the trail such as roots and vegetation. This ride does not take place on smooth, well-packed trails. It is a mix of logging roads and trails with some climbs and descents. We will make frequent stops to smell the flowers!

Ride Rating: This is a beginner, 4-5 mile mountain bike ride on old logging roads and some trails. You should be comfortable riding singletrack, but be ready for fun stops to smell the roses. Be ready to ride over loose gravel and small obstacles in the trail on a mix of logging roads and trails with some climbs and descents.

What to Bring: Your bike, helmet, a bike repair kit, and plenty of water and snacks. Dress for the weather.
