July 9 – Bend
The wide open landscape of Central Oregon is intriguing, with those bright skies striking mountain views at seemingly every turn. Tour des Chutes is an opportunity to soak it all in. This well organized event has been around for years and is an absolute delight.
With an abundance of outdoor recreation activities and all the fun of Bend, this event is certainly worth the drive for those of you who aren’t fortunate enough to live in Bend. Make a weekend of it and plan to hike, kayak, mt. bike, sip craft beers, wander the Old Mill District, walk along the waterfront, paddle the river through the heart of Bend or simply soak in the McMenamin’s soaking pool to unwind after a fantastic day.
