Itinerary

Day 1 - Funner/Tiddlywinks Loop

The Funner- Tiddlywinks is as fun a loop, as it is a name. Celebrating their 10-year anniversary, this loop is constantly evolving, and provides both major uphill, and downhill sections with incredible lines, and technical features. Tiddlywinks is a glorious downhill that will see you bombing down sweet single track, and flying around bermed corners. The riding is fast and furious, allowing for a lot lot of time in the air as you launch off man-made jumps, and boulders. This loop is sure to get your adrenaline pumping and prepped for five more days of heavy riding.
After our ride, head back to our home for the next 5 nights, the famous McMenamins Hotel. The quirky converted former school now houses a pub, brewery, movie theater, live music, and soaking pool. Beyond the obvious amenities, keep an eye out for any number of the secret hallways leading to secret rooms.
After a bit of relaxation, rejoin your group to compare rides, and favorite beers, with an included dinner at Deschutes Brewery

Day 2 - McKenzie River Trail

The McKenzie River Trail is one of the most famous trails in North America and provides the quintessential Oregon trail experience. This thrilling downhill will take you 20 miles through rocky lava fields, smooth singletrack, and fern covered old growth forest. While the sharp, technical sections of the lava field may slow you down, the rest of the ride is smooth and fast. You’ll have a number of incredible opportunities to cool off in the mist of waterfalls, or dive into beautiful blue pools of water along the way.

Day 3 - Bachelor to Bend

With the national favorite out of the way, we head out to the local’s favorite in the high country of Mt. Bachelor and the Cascade Mountains. The ride starts with a bang, as we build for the Flagline Trail with a grind-it-out climb to the top of the descent. Once at the top, you’ll be rewarded with 3500ft of fast and swooping downhill through green meadows and old growth forest. The fast and technical downhill flow of Southfork allows you to hit some well made stunts before ending with a mellow downhill on Phil’s Trail. A legendary web of connected paths and features, you’ll find it easy to lose youreslf in the joy of Phil’s Trail. We’ll be hitting happy hour at the talented Crux Fermentation Project after the ride, but dont let the thought of that delicious beer distract you through some of Phil’s tricky, rocky sections. Complete this epic day with a well deserved, and included massage.

Day 4 - Oakridge

The Alpine-Tire-Cloverpatch-Alpine (ATCA), is a local’s favorite. It features endless trails of singletrack that weave through beautiful sections of Oregon pine forest, and past many breathtaking viewpoints. As this screaming downhill is broken up by a number of climbs, we’ll shuttle you to the top of the run to ensure you’re able to attack the trail at full strength.
If you don’t want to tackle the whole ATCA, focus your time on the Alpine trail. Considered by many to be the “Crown Jewel” of Oakridge, these classic segments devoid of a number of the technical sections and uphills found on the ATCA, which makes it more manageable for all skill levels. Let it all go, and feel the force while flying through the trails famous Jedi section. Groomed for speed, and beauty, this singletrack treasure is damn near perfect
Celebrate this day of incredible downhill action with an included lunch at Westfir Lodge.

Day 5 - Bachelor to Bend

On today’s ride we head back to Bachelor to handle any unfinished business. Once again, we’ll be surrounded by the majestic alpine meadows, creek crossings, and sections of lush old growth forest of the Cascades high country. Time seems to stand still on the Mzarek Trail with a mix a long beautiful climbs and, fast and fun downhills. You’ll find an incredible flowing rhythm as you carve twisty turns through ponderosa pines, and manzanita trees with few technical sections. Technical freaks will get their fix however, as the finish in an old creek bed is littered with numerous obstacles.
Another day dominating Bachelor, means another night to enjoy Beer in Bend, so join us at the Bend Brewing Company for a refreshing cold one.

Day 6 - Mt. Bachelor Bike Park

Day three on Mt. Bachelor, and it’s time to experience the mountain in a completely different way. Two lifts provide access to over 300 miles of amazing single track, ranging from beginner to advanced double black. Choose your flavor with an incredible variety of flowing downhills, and rocky technical chutes. The rugged natural landscape is enhanced by well maintained, and constantly evolving machine made elements. Our favorite trail, Lava Flow provides a wide, long trail and will reward you for staying off the brakes as you fly through sections of lava rock and dense hemlock. Be sure to check out Last Chance and Rattlesnake for some of the best technical looks in the region. End your adventure today with an exclamation mark. Send it.

T Specialized-Diverge 2018 Specialized Diverge Comp Cycle.
The Specialized Diverge is not quite a cross bike and not completely a road bike. The Diverge is the perfect bike for this tour.
With clearance for up to 42 mm tires and a Future Shock that is geared specifically to riding smoothly over harsh terrain, Specialized notes that: “Sure, some have tried to make their cross bikes more road-capable and others have made their road bikes more adventure-ready, but we created one bike that makes no compromises between the two.”
