What we're about

Do you love bikes? Looking for people to ride with on a mountain bike, gravel/adventure bike, road bike, touring bike, fat bike, or tandems? Are you 18 years or older? Then this is YOUR tribe.

Bend Area Cycling Enthusiasts (BACE) offers a variety of organized bike rides, some ending at breweries. Some harder, some easier, some more technical. Many close to Bend, some include camping overnight or a few hours of carpooling. And sometimes, we are joining races as a group. It all depends on the ride organizer. (If you can't figure out if you belong on a ride, just text the ride organizer.) It's all about riding safe, while having a blast. Meeting new people to ride with or helping you coordinate with your riding buddies.

And speaking of ride organizers, the BEST way to ride your DREAM route at YOUR pace that works for YOUR schedule is to become an organizer. Drop Gravel Girl (Linda English) a note or text her at 541 550 8930.

Mountain Biking Museum Exhibit Opening: Klunkers and Stumpjumpers:

Deschutes Historical Museum

Join us for the launch of the new exhibit at the Deschutes Historical Museum that tells the full story of Central Oregon's connection to mountain biking. (This is a non-BACE event, hosted by the Deschutes Historical Museum.)

Here are the details:

Once upon a time, Klunker bikes gathered at the base of an undeveloped Awbrey Butte. Members of Klisters Corner and the Black Rock Riders would put in hours on their klunkers, ‘dirt bombing’ down old logging roads on bikes never meant for such terrain and returning with skinned legs and arms and grins from ear to ear. Their exploratory journeys formed the basis for mountain biking history in Central Oregon.

The Deschutes Historical Museum (DHM) celebrates this journey with a new exhibit, Klunkers and Stumpjumpers: A History on Two Wheels. Using journals, sketches, early prototypes and gear from the pioneers of this now modern sport, we invite visitors to step back in time when there were only trails to be blazed. Join the Museum, Saturday, April 1, as they host a celebration of the mountain bike community, honoring local Mountain Bike trail blazers for their contribution to the world of Mountain Biking, and for making this exhibit possible. The public is encouraged to attend and to even ride your klunkers and stumpjumpers.
The festivities begin at 4:00pm at the Deschutes Historical Museum.
