Bend, OR is an outdoor enthusiast's dream. Dubbed the "outdoor playground of the West," Bend is famous for it's outdoor pursuits, laid-back vibe, pristine beauty, sun-drenched days and cool nights. The mountain bike trails are flowy and fun. You can't help but smile on some of the long swooping downhills with rollers, berms and jumps. The few lava rock gardens are challenging and the views on the upper trails are spectacular. The best thing about Bend is the easy access to so many trails nearby, yet you're deep in the woods away from it all. Plus, with around 16 breweries (our favorite is Deschutes Brewery) and a plethora of local coffee goodness, it's easy to wind up or wind down in this outdoor mecca.
This clinic is hosted at Seventh Mountain Resort where we work on perfecting skills using a large grassy area, a mountain bike-specific skills center, dirt jumps, a giant berm, drops, a pumptrack and cross-country style trails nearby. Each afternoon we shuttle or ride to nearby cross-country trails for shred-sessions! Whoo hoo!
"This weekend was AMAZING! I did things I never thought I would ever even attempt! It was such a safe place to learn, (the coaches are literally there to catch you) it was relaxed, encouraging and so much fun! From beginner to racer there was something for everyone and the team of coaches were humble, funny, encouraging and ripping riders!" - Becky
