This is not the typical summit!
Conference sessions end by 3:00pm on Friday and Saturday allowing for time to ride the amazing trails in Bend. There will be plenty of time to mingle and get to know your peers from around the region. The summit will include work shops on Friday & Saturday morning, field workshops on Friday afternoon, group rides for all, free shuttles and guided rides from Cog Wild MTB tours throughout the weekend, a party on Friday night sponsored by Deschutes Brewery to keep you from getting parched and much much more!
Reserve a room at the bike friendly Down Town Phoenix Inn and get a great discount on rooms starting at $89 a night! As our host hotel The Phoenix will be offering great discounts, bike storage, a bike wash, tools and more to Summit attendees. You'll be a couple short blocks from downtown Bend, the Deschutes River and a quick pedal to the trails. Your room price includes a full breakfast, fresh squeezed fruit juice and coffee.
