Joyce's Electric Bike Adventures

Electric bikes have really taken off in Bend, Oregon, which means there are plenty of places to take these bikes! Joyce, who can often be found on her own electric bike, recommends these areas for a fun outing! If you happen to want something easy, then starting at the Lava Lands Visitor Center and cruising the miles of paved trails through Sunriver would be perfect! For more adventure, you could start at Benham Falls on the Deschutes River Trail and head north towards Dillon Falls. Finally, if you are looking for a more strenuous day out, start in Bend and head for Mt. Bachelor for a ride that ends with a view! Make sure to end your day with a drink and a meal to reward yourself for an amazing day out! Don’t have an electric bike? No worries! You can rent them in town at Let It Ride Bikes!…
