Trip Planning

Trip Planning

It can get pretty warm in late summer in Bend so plan on bringing breathable clothing and sun protection. Bend is situated in the high desert and the evenings get cold so make sure to bring enough to layer up in the evening too. Bring your mountain bike in tip-top shape, or demo a brand new bike from the evo Mountain Bike Demo Center at LOGE.

Since a large portion of the trip will be focused on photography be sure to bring everything you need to shoot and ride with your camera. We recommend bringing a camera-specific backpack. In addition to your camera and lenses, we ask that you bring a laptop with photo editing software and any memory cards and hard drives you may need for editing and storing photos.
