Can you imagine not having mountain biking in your life? This is the reality for many local Bend kids who don’t own bikes – nor know singletrack bliss exists in Bend.
There’s a solution: Boys & Girls Club of Bend’s summer mountain bike program, taking more than 650 local kids mountain biking over the past 8 years. The program was started by the now defunct Bend’s Big Fat Tour, purchasing a fleet mountain bikes, helmets and a flatbed trailer with a Bend-made bike rack. Funds lasted through the 2017 summer, so with funds finally depleted – your help is needed to ensure the mountain bike camp takes place the 2018 summer. Starting the summer of 2019, funds from the Bend Fat Tire Tour will keep the camp going. We hope you’ll donate to help the next generation enjoy riding bikes in the woods.
