CENTRAL OREGON: THE PERFECT PLACE TO RIDE

Cycling in Central Oregon

Extensive and renowned are words that describe the Central Oregon singletrack network.

On any given summer morning, families, retirees, visitors with rental bikes, old-school pioneers of the sport and nationally-ranked competitors alike will be congregating at trailheads.

Once out on the trails, though, you might not even see another rider as you wind through the forest. That’s part of the beauty of Central Oregon mountain biking, with more than 300 miles of trails beneath a canopy of ponderosa pines in the foothills of the Cascades: Everyone has room to roam. The lower-elevation trails cover all the bases: relatively flat, fast, and fun, with some tough technical sections and punchy climbs. Trails come in all levels, from beginner to shredder.

Higher up, ride in the shadows of snowcapped 10,000-foot peaks through high alpine meadows with breathtaking vistas. Rustic shelters used as warming huts in the winter are perfect for summer biking rest stops where you can take a breather, have a snack from your pack and enjoy the high elevation.

Phil’s Trail near Bend is by far the most popular riding area in the region. The trailhead is just a couple of minutes from downtown. Don’t let the hectic parking scene deter you. From the trailhead off Skyliners Road, riders can access a well-marked maze of diverse singletrack with pockets of solitude to be found.

Ride technical mountain bike features suitable for all levels in Sisters at Bike Park 242, complete with a pump track and a larger riding circuit. For more experienced mountain bikers, Mt. Bachelor’s Downhill Bike Park is a great spot for a summer or fall ride. Grab your mountain bike, or a park rental, and hop on the chairlift. Cruise down intermediate and advanced trails.
