Bachelor Park & Ride shuttle for a chill ride to the mountain in the winter. You’ll also find plenty of bike rentals and shops if you prefer to pedal your way around BikeTown USA.

  • PRACTICE PROPER POOPER ETIQUETTE

    Phone:
    PRACTICE PROPER POOPER ETIQUETTE If you don’t have a dog, go borrow one, because Bend locals love their four-legged friends. Visit one of our many dog parks to see why the city was named the nation’s dog-friendliest by Dog Fancy magazine. If you’re out and about with Fido, obey the leash laws and do your duty when he does his doody. At the end of the day, buy Rover his own pint of Dawg Grog. He’s earned it.

  • Smile (and wag) at strangers on the trail

    Smile (and wag) at strangers on the trail A funny thing happens to people in Bend. The corners of their mouths tug up and their eyes start sparkling like the Deschutes River on a sunny day. Give in to the urge to grin at random strangers. Not only will folks smile back, but they’ll take you for one of their own. When you’re in Bend, you pretty much are.

  • Show some tenderness to the trails

    Happy trails to all

    Show some tenderness to the trails Bend locals know we’ve got some of the top trails on earth, and we want to keep them that way. Skidding on corners or blowing out berms is sooooo not cool when you’re mountain biking, and smart cyclists keep off muddy trails so ruts don’t form. If you’re out for a hike, keep your boots moving on marked trails. Not only does it help with erosion, but it ensures you won’t end up on the six-o-clock news for getting lost in the woods.

  • Pack it in, Pack it out

    Phone:
    Pack it in, Pack it out Good visitors know it’s courteous to pack out garbage at the end of a picnic, but why not take it to the next level? Tuck a small trash bag in your day pack and pick up bits of rubbish along the trail. Now your favorite spot is just a little nicer than you found it!
