This video is sponsored by Visit Bend (Visit Bend, Oregon). “Some people think that childlike wonder is something you grow out of. Those people have never been to Bend. Here, amazement is something you fall into, and it’s waiting eagerly for anyone who’s willing to make the trip to seize it. It’s a place packed with possibility.” – https://visitbend.com

The Route: “The Pawn” by Dirty Freehub
“This is an adventurous up / down route with big views of volcanic craters, mountain tops, and long ridgelines. We love the constantly changing terrain from gravel roads to rugged forest service track to flowy single-track. It puts a grin on our faces!”
In this video, JOM of the Gravel Cyclist crew rides “The Pawn” route, with plenty of snow along the track at the highest points of elevation, to make things extra challenging (May 13, 2022).
