Fifty 50

Note: This is Training Route, a good local ride, but not a destination route.

A route that is close in to central Bend, short in distance, and has a good variety to work technical skills. A go-to route when time is limited. It is a favorite of one of our riding partners, CP.

We have classified this route as a Training Route in that it encompasses parts of several other 5 Star Routes but adds in a bit of new terrain. We have ridden it a number of times.
