Looking to race your ‘cross bike in Bend? The Thrilla Cyclocross Series happens in September and is open to all riders over the age of 12. Racing around a course at the Bend Athletic Club, you can hop barriers and compete against Bend locals in a weekly race series.
For real cyclocross madness, Bend Oregon hosts the highly anticipated Halloween Cross Crusade & Cyclocross festival. Is it a cyclocross race? Is it a cultural celebration? Will you have fun? Yes!
Witness the fun and mayhem of over 1,000 cyclocross racers donning costumes and competing for Cross Crusade points. In addition to two days of epic racing, attendees will enjoy the sights, sounds and tastes of the Deschutes Brewery beer garden, live music, and cultural food and festivities. Visit www.crosscrusade.com for more information.
Deschutes Brewery loves to have a really good time. This after-party will be the party of the year. We promise. Deschutes Brewery will host another not-to-be-missed warehouse party on Saturday night when they host their warehouse celebration of all things Cyclocross.
If you prefer to ride your bike in a less competitive fashion, Bend has over 5000 miles of gravel road for you to explore. Check out our gravel riding page for some some suggested routes.
