The 2018 edition of Bike the Bridges will be held on Sunday, August 19th. Check-in starts at 4:30pm with the ride kicking off around 5pm. This fun and family-friendly bicycle ride showcases many of the beautiful vistas you get when crossing the Deschutes River as it passes through Bend. Let this be your excuse to get a little exercise, make friends, and discover new bike routes to commute around town.
We’ll start and end at The Gear Fix. Pizza will be provided by The Gear Fix and adult beverages provided courtesy of Deschutes Brewery.
