2022 Tierra Adventuras


What: Vamonos Outside is partnering with Cogwild to host a learn to mountain bike program specifically for Latinx/BIPOC teenagers from local high schools located in Bend. VO believes that Latinx/BIPOC youth in this community deserve the opportunity to thrive to be their best selves. We at Vamonos Outside want to get bipoc youth out on the trails. This program is geared towards those who already know how to ride a bike of any type and for those who have a strong interest in learning to mountain bike. 


The goal of this program is to introduce youth to mountain biking and establish a sense of place to the local trails surrounding Bend. This program will include lessons from trained mountain BIPOC bike coaches, free bike and helmet rentals, snacks and drinks, and transportation. This program will be a 6 week program biking once a week on Tuesdays after school. Here is a broad breakdown what each year of the program will focus on:
