About Serena Serena rides bikes really fast and also cares a lot about Bend, her home since 2005.
What’s Your Favorite Bend Adventure? A big day on the bike, whether riding single track or gravel. I love pouring over maps, planning a new route, loading up my pack with all the essentials (lots of snacks, an few extra layers, and lights, just in case), and heading out, right from my front door.
What’s Your Favorite Dining Spot? Zydeco has the best carrot cake ever! Does that count as dining?
Best Piece of Advice for First Time Visitors to Bend? Don’t underestimate the adventure Bend has on offer, or the wildness of our forests, mountains and rivers. Play hard, be prepared, and be kind. Visit like you plan to return.
