Bikepacking Tours

This is a true adventure as it involves spending the night in the wilds you rode into. It is earning the sunset in a place where very few have seen it. It is a degree of self-sufficiency that makes the campfire feel a bit warmer and the dinner a little more satisfying. 

Intro to bikepacking trip: Redmond to Foley Waters (18 easy miles $150)

Want to take an easy, enjoyable trip to see if this is your thing? This is the perfect trip for you. 18 miles of mixed terrain that is mostly downhill and very scenic, eventually ending up in a quiet meadow in the bottom of a canyon of the Deschutes River. The stars above and riffles of water lull you to sleep. Feel free to bring your fly rod as this is a favorite for rainbow and big browns. This trip starts and ends  in Redmond. Check with us if you need any luggage or camping gear. Does not include rental camping gear or rental bike. Call about camping gear list.

Bend to the Metolius River over-nighter (Two full days $275)

This pleasant ride takes you through ponderosa forests, through the town of Sisters, up to the shoulder of Black Butte volcano, then down an awesome stretch of single track to the various campsites. The Metolius is an intensely blue miracle that gushes out of the ground and flows north through fir trees, incense cedars, and ponderosa. Don’t be surprised to see bear or cougar tracks on the trail as you are now in their neighborhood. This is a truly special place. Check with us if you need any luggage or camping gear.

TRIP INCLUDES:

  • Shuttle to Redmond if needed

  • Lunch in Sisters on the way out

  • Breakfast at Camp Sherman

  • Backpack-style dinner

  • Morning coffee or tea fireside

  • Local, expert guides who tell silly jokes by the campfire

Happy Monkey Trail  (Two very full days or 2.5 days $400)

We start, appropriately enough, at Basecamp Pizza in Terrebonne and go right through Terrebonne  and up around Grey Butte. The Good news here is that it’s all downhill from here (at least for that day). Sweeping vistas of the all the mountains west of here guide you as you navigate the sagebrush to a 30 mile downhill! We travel dirt roads and eventually pop out on the Deschutes at Trout Creek Campsite. The next morning we climb, mostly pavement, to the plateau overlooking beautiful Lake Billy Chinook then over the Crooked River gorge and wind up back at our vehicles and more importantly to Base Camp Pizza for uhh …Pizza. Congrats- you just rode 110 miles you deserve a beer too! Check with us if you need any luggage or camping gear.

 

TRIP INCLUDES:

  • 110 miles of fun mixed terrain miles

  • Shuttle if needed to Redmond from Bend

  • Backpack-style dinner

  • Breakfast, coffee or tea

  • Beer and Pizza at Base Camp Pizza

  • Local, expert guides who tell silly jokes by the campfire (when there’s not a burn ban)

Bikepacking is roughing it in comfort, sleeping in a tent but experiencing your surroundings with all of your senses. This is the one people can’t quit thinking about two weeks later when they are sitting at their desk at work. The bicycle allows you to cover a lot of ground and takes the load off your back and puts it on your bike. We pack as light as possible but prioritize your comfort, safety, and enjoyment. Don’t have a tent, sleeping bag or some other item? We probably do and are happy to rent you whatever you may need.
