Bend, Oregon is known as a premier destination for mountain bikers across the globe. Quickly the same is becoming true for off-road cyclists with disabilities. If you have a disability and are looking to try this sport or explore the area with experienced instructors, OAS is expanding its opportunities for adaptive mountain biking.
Currently, OAS has one off-road handcycle in our fleet. This is a handcycle built specifically to go where no wheelchair or road handcycle was ever designed to venture. Our current model is the ReActive Adaptations Bomber, which is suitable for individuals with strong upper-bodies and good core strength.
Additionally, if own your own off-road handcycle or mountain bike and are looking for a guide or instruction to explore or improve your riding, OAS can help.
OAS has certified mountain bike instructors on staff and in our volunteer pool as well as individuals experienced in off-road handcycling.
First time never ever rides with OAS’ Bomber are just $5 and available most days of the summer. You will meet at the OAS warehouse and ride directly from there.
For those with their own bikes, OAS charges $40 for a two-hour guide or instructional experience on a local trail network.
Transportation is available with an added fee of $10 for pick up and hikes starting close to Bend city limits, and $30 for other areas (i.e. Smith Rock, LaPine, etc).
