Mountain Bike Vacations

Most trips are 3 days, which gives people the ability to add on additional days specific to their interests (McKenzie Shuttle, tour in Hood then ride two days in Bend, etc). All tours include Deschutes Brewery Beer, amazing food and either camping or hotel accommodations. We try to make it so people don’t have any additional costs.

Bend Bike & Brew Weekend – three days of riding, lots of yummy local beer!! Stay in a hotel in downtown Bend – $625pp

Bend Ultimate Adventure – three days of riding, on amazing trails in the Cascades similar to what we rode with the last day the ride you all did on day 2. – $545pp

Details on these tours and the others we offer (including Hood River Bike & Brew, Ellsworth owners weekend and Fremont Nation Forest epic)

Bike Rentals

We have a small fleet of bikes, but in addition, offer every rental bike in Bend to our guests. Check out this year’s options: When a guest rents a bike through us, we pick it up at the bike shop, have it ready for their tour and then return it for them – all for the same price as if they rented it from the shop themselves.

GoPro Rentals

Starting next year we will have cameras available for our guests to rent! – $25 a day, bring your own memory card or purchase one from Cog for $25.

If you need feedback from our guests, you can click here:, you will see that the usual response is similar to all of yours, which is awesome!!!

    That was a great review! Prior to reading this, we were in the infancy stages of planning a trip to Cog Wild this July! After your review I just wish July were now! Can’t wait to go and ride forever. Thanks for sharing your experiences.
