Bend Bikes is teaming up with The Environmental Center’s Garden for Every School program for a School Garden Tour by bike! We will visit 3 school garden sites in northeast Bend, the Deschutes County Juvenile Community Justice Detention Facility, Bend International School, and Desert Sky Montessori School. We begin our ride at 2:00pm at the Deschutes County Juvenile Division building and loop back there at the end of our time together for those that need to leave a car there.
We will travel at a casual pace with ride leaders at the front and back of the group so that no one is left behind! Our route will include a combination of neighborhood streets, low-traffic roads without bike lanes, and busier roads with marked bike lanes.There are sidewalks along some, but not all, the roadways. O.B. Riley is a known bike-route for recreational cyclists and has a dedicated (unprotected) bike lane but the speed limit is 35 miles per hour, which has earned it its designation as a route for riders of above-average skill. View the route here. The bike ride is 2.5 miles and will be limited to 25 bikers.
