The beauty of Pickett’s Charge is to watch and race with the aforementioned talented pro racers (okay, usually from behind) enthusiastic masters, juniors and beginner mountain bike racers. The goal of Pickett’s Charge in Don Leet’s words is to “have the funnest course with the most single track.”
Guess it’s a good thing that a large part of the race takes place on a trail called “Funner.” Also a good thing the race ends with a cold pint of Deschutes Brewery beer in your hand! Couldn't think of a better way to end this mountain bike race! Cheers!
The Fermentation Celebration is a beer walk beer in the Old Mill District, with hop filled tastings of Bend’s numerous local breweries. The 3rd Annual Fermentation Celebration takes place on Thursday, June 19 from 4-10pm.
