From our meeting point in Bend, we'll explore the intricate trail system not far out of town and then move on to the Mt. Bachelor and Cascade Lakes area west of Bend and Sun River. All of our rides boast remarkably well maintained trails, gorgeous vistas of nearby volcanic created mountains, few fellow travelers to meet on the trails and pristine lakes with fishing opportunities for the angler/mt. biker.
Our tours range from Moderate to Intermediate to Advanced in difficulty. Please make sure you are not choosing a tour that is too difficult for your skill level. This is your vacation, not boot camp! Expect to ride about 4-6 hours per day, covering an average of 20-35 miles. Call our office if you have questions.
- Moderate Rafting: Tours are suitable for riders with an average to good fitness level that engage in some form of regular exercise. Hills and descents are typically of short duration and longer steeper pitches can be easily walked. Trail surfaces are relatively even with occasional obstacles on trail (rocks, roots, sand) that can be either ridden or walked.
- Intermediate Rafting: Tours are suitable for riders with good to excellent fitness level. Previous mountain bike experience is recommended. Trail surfaces may include uneven terrain and narrow trails, single track, with occasional obstacles (roots, rocks, sand). Hills and descents are moderate to strenuous and require some skill. Riders with minimal mountain bike experience but who have road biking skills or a strong fitness level, along with an adventurous spirit, should be suitable for an intermediate tour.
- Advanced Rafting: Tours are suitable for experienced mountain bikers only with excellent fitness and strong bike handling skills. Riding is primarily on rough double track with frequent obstacles or high elevation single track. Sections of trail can be very challenging with frequent ascents and descents of significant length. Most of our advanced level tours are located at elevations ranging from 8,000 to 12,000 feet where trail conditions can change rapidly due to weather conditions and thunderstorms.
You won't be disappointed with the culinary skills of the M07947 staff. We serve delicious energy packed meals with lots of variety to satisfy all tastes. We can accommodate special diets, just let us know your preferences. We do not provide alcoholic beverages, but feel free to bring your own. We do provide sodas, lemonade/Gatorade, and plenty of water.
From the moment you arrive at our meeting location until the end of the tour when our shuttle vehicle drops you off, we take care of the details. Your friendly and knowledgeable guides will prepare all your meals, share their knowledge of the history and geology of the region and ensure you have a fun and safe trip. Our support vehicle will carry all of your personal and camping gear. On most tours you will only need to carry your water and small items, such as snacks, camera, sunscreen, and any clothing you'll want to have immediate access to.
On single track tours or tours where the support vehicle is unable to travel on the same route as the riders, you may be required to carry your lunch as well. All your gear that you do not have with you while you're on your bicycle will be stored in the waterproof bags that we provide. A day pack works well for the items you'd like easy access to while you're on your bicycle.
