Roam Retreat Bend OR
"First time being part of a Roam Retreat and I absolutely loved it. Ash and Andi as well as the rest of the staff went well beyond my expectations to make this experience, an unforgettable one. We got amazing trails, wonderful leaders, great service, really good food, many laughs, and so much fun! A great experience. You have to try it!" - Maricela, San Diego CA
WELCOME TO BEND
Tucked neatly between the snow covered peaks of the Cascade Mountains and the inspiring high desert plateaus of Central Oregon, Bend, Oregon has evolved from a sleepy lumber town to an international mecca for outdoor enthusiasts
Join us for a 3 day/2 night weekend of lady shred, gourmet food, free Specialized demo bikes, and SRAM supported technical clinics taught by professional female mechanics.
Hundreds of miles of pristine singletrack beneath a canopy of ponderosa pines in the forested foothills of the Cascade mountains...it doesn't get much better than this.
Bend is located on the eastern edge of the Cascade Range along the Deschutes River. Here the Ponderosa Pine forest transitions into the high desert, characterized by arid land, junipers, sagebrush, and bitter-brush. It is a place boasting ubiquitous views of the snow-capped Cascade Mountains flitting in and out of sight as you navigate world class trails.
Join us in Bend for a weekend of iconic Northwest beauty and riding.

DAY ONE - WELCOME TO BEND!
Our retreat will kick off with an afternoon cross-country ride on iconic Bend singletrack. We will hoot and holler along the pine draped dirt with natural features such as the occasional rock garden and split-lines with easier vs more advanced options for shredding. The ride will culminate right in our backyard at LOGE Entrada where awaits our famous #fourfootcheesboard paired with a curated cooler of Sierra Nevada brews & (optional) female-led tech clinic.
DAY TWO - BIKE PARK BONANZA
On day two we'll head up a short and beautiful drive on the Cascade Scenic Byway stopping at Mt. Bachelor for a full day of lift-access riding on the park's 13 miles of gravity and flow trails. Take laps on laps on laps being sure to stop back at Roam HQ in the parking lot for snacks, a beautiful lunch, a cold beverage between runs.
You might not be hungry after our hearty parkside lunch, but be prepared for Taco Tuesday on Saturday - our signature fiesta night and campfire kumbaya.
DAY THREE - OUR LIL SECRET & GOODBYES
We'll finish out the weekend with a hearty breakfast followed by a shuttle and ride that's a favorite amongst the locals. Known for the perfect mixture of fast flowy descents, shorty punchy climbs, and casual care-free stretches for smooth buttery singletrack, we know this ride will be up there with your favorites too.
We'll conclude our Bend epic with genuine bear hugs, and plans for future weekends of shred!
