eBike Friendly Gravel Group Rides
For those interested in joining group ebike rides in Bend and nearby areas please join the meetup group "BACE" Bend Area Cycling Enthusiasts". You cannot come on these organized rides unless you have signed up for the ride via Meetup though we will notify you initially via email when the rides are scheduled. The rides will have a description, including length of ride, the pace, elevation gain and loss, starting location, and a GPS map. The group size will be limited to 20 and non ebikers will be welcome. These rides may be in remote areas, so being self-sufficient having tools, water, GPS, first aid and cell phone is important. You will be provided an alternative route if the pace or terrain becomes too difficult or we will notify beforehand that no alternate route is available.
An eMTB is an ideal bike for this ride. Here are two great options:
Specialized Turbo Levo Comp
Felt Redemption E-30
These bikes have stable, wide, knobby tires and full suspension frames to maintain control and comfort on rough dirt roads. Plus wide, flat handlebars to dig in while climbing and to keep the bike in check on descents. They're well-designed, with the weight of the motor and battery low and centered making it easy to handle in loose or unstable trail conditions.
We're excited for you and we're here to help you get going! Book a test ride here
