Group MTB Ride & Demo


Meet up after work at Pine Mountain Sports for a fun and social mountain bike ride for guys and gals of all abilities!

We’ll pedal to the trails from the shop and divide into groups based on riding levels . Each group will have a ride leader and a designated sweep, and decide its route and ride time based on everybody’s needs. We’ll all wait for each other and regroup at each trail intersection. All abilities are welcome and nobody is left behind.

Trek, Juliana, and Santa Cruz mountain demo bikes are free for the evening on a first-come, first-served basis. If you wish to demo a bike, please arrive 30 minutes early and show credit card and drivers license. Free demo bikes cannot be ‘reserved’ so you might want to bring your own just in case we run out.

No RSVP required. Call 541-385-8080 for questions.

Note: One of our Bike Ride Waivers must be completed in the store before each ride. Thanks!

COTA Movie Night: Adventure Shorts


Pine Mountain Sports invites you to a two-part screening of the Filmed By Bike film festival at Central Oregon Trail Alliance Movie Night @ McMenamins this (March &) April!

Filmed by Bike is a film festival that features the World’s Best Bike Movies. The annual film festival weekend (now in year 18) is hosted every May in Portland, then their movies collections tour the globe . Thanks to our friends at Bend Electric Bikes, this two night film festival is coming to COTA Movie Night with a mission to inspire all of us to embrace the bicycle…

On April 16 we’re screening Filmed By Bike “Adventure Shorts”, which is an evening of adventure-specific cycling films full of inspiring tales of 2-wheeled struggle and triumph on the rugged road. Cycling expeditions aren’t always easy, but nature and a wild sense of curiosity lure us away from our computers, desks and schedules to enter the great wide open. The Adventure Shorts program is packed with gorgeous cinematography, and compelling cycling trips.

Link to Adventure Shorts movie trailer: https://vimeo.com/351108132

Run time: 56 minutes

Movie Night at McMenamins raises funds and awareness for Central Oregon Trail Alliance.

$6 per person, cash only, please. Minors accompanied by parent or guardian.

MTB Suspension Set-Up Clinic

Besides the air in your mountain bike tires, there is nothing more crucial to enjoying your time on the trail than proper suspension set-up. We’ll help you make the most of your suspension fork and rear shock by helping you understand and set up your preload, rebound, and compression settings on your own mountain bike. Please bring your bicycle, and be prepared to stay until 10P as getting your bike perfectly dialed in often takes time.

RSVP and $30 advance payment required.

Our MTB Suspension Set-Up Clinic space is limited to 8 riders and 2 suspension techs.

Call 541-385-8080 to register.

2020 Bend Bike Swap

The Bend Bike Swap gives cyclists of all stripes a venue to buy and trade their two-wheelers in preparation for the upcoming cycling season.

A wide variety of bicycles will be available, from toddler-sized scooters to high-end road, mountain and cyclocross bikes. Most popular — and therefore the quickest to sell out — are commuter and cruiser bikes. Spare components, such as seat posts, crank arms and cogs.

The Bike Swap began as the brainchild of Ryan McGlone, a Boneyard Cycling team member that was looking for new ways to give back to the local community. After sharing this idea with other team members over frosty pints it was clear that Bend was in need of a bike swap and it was up to Boneyard to make it happen. Armed with a shoestring budget and limited planning, the First Annual Bend Bike Swap boasted serious promise yielding $12,000 in sales, raising just over a thousand dollars for local beneficiaries Mount Bachelor Sports Education Foundation and Bend Endurance Academy. From there we knew this needed to become an annual event!

Schedule:
Friday April 24: Item check in and registration at the Swap site – Thump Coffee 10AM to 4PM

Saturday April 25: Swap is OPEN 10am to 6pm

Bend Unpaved

Bend Unpaved is an immersive VIP gravel training experience limited to only 15 riders. This all-inclusive camp spans three challenging and rewarding days in the saddle alongside veteran Pros Carl Decker, Barry Wicks, and Matt Lieto, on the scenic back-roads of Bend, Oregon. Riders will enjoy gourmet catered meals, lively story-telling, and informative fireside chats each evening at Unpaved Basecamp–a stunning private 20 acre ranch. Day and night, campers will learn from these veteran sports personalities, and close personal friends– improving riding techniques and gaining knowledge about gravel topics as diverse as nutrition, gear choice, and race tactics.

Why Bend? Bend, Oregon has long been a breeding ground for professional endurance athletes of every type, and for good reason. Situated at 3600′, and bisected by the scenic Deschutes river, this small city marks a transition from the Cascade Range’s majestic pine forests to vast high desert landscapes of juniper and sage. Bend is surrounded on all sides by public lands, mostly accessed by sparsely traveled unpaved roads. A location ripe for big gravel training days then–but Bend is maybe even better known for its “Rest and Recuperation” bonafides, as it has some of the most award-winning breweries in the United States.

The goal of Bend Unpaved is to help riders gain a foundation of fitness and gravel road riding skill that will serve them as they ride into the bulk of the gravel racing season. Barry, Matt, and Carl have made long careers in the sport by keeping training sustainable, interesting and fun. At Bend Unpaved, we strive to prepare and empower anyone who loves to ride mixed surfaces–to leave Bend riding better, with more confidence and poise than ever.

We are excited to share our gravel stoke with you in May.

The 2020 High Cascades 100

The High Cascades 100 is a Central Oregon MTB race like no other!

Mud Slinger EventsIt challenges elite pro racers and hard core weekend chargers alike to cover 100 miles of amazing Central Oregon single track — and climb around 8,000′ in the process.

The course changes each year and will be posted on their website as race day gets closer.

Top pros will finish in under 8 hours duking it out the whole way, and it’s not uncommon for the last finisher to arrive at sunset around the 15 hour mark.

Now, a race like this is not to be taken lightly. As their website FAQ says: “Most likely injury: Collarbone followed by laceration.” If that sounds hard core (and it is), consider volunteering. Helping the athletes who compete in this race at aid stations, at the start, or at the finish is a fun experience — and something that feels great to be a part of. Contact the HC100 Volunteer Coordinator for more info.

Learn more about The High Cascades 100 at their website.
