Lev Stryker and Melanie Fisher, owners of Cog Wild Bicycle Tours & Shuttles, the two have been pedaling for a long time. Lev started mountain biking at the age of fifteen, and the last fourteen years have seen him biking all over Central Oregon—both recreationally and in competitive races. For her part, Melanie's bike has taken her all over the world, from India to Japan to New Zealand. Along with their team of experienced guides, Lev and Melanie help inspire a similar adventurous spirit for cycling in everyone they meet.
Hundreds of miles of trails weave through the Deschutes National Forest outside of Bend, Oregon. Cog Wild Bicycle Tours & Shuttles takes groups along customized portions of trails during single-day and multi-day excursions. Guides design these journeys around both skill level (from beginner–advanced) and agenda. Trips may take riders deep into the forest for overnight camping trips, or they might treat groups to days of riding followed by nights at local breweries for private tastings and slumber parties with hops.
