Bend has been described as "The New Boulder". Lots of great local businesses, an environmental focus, and great outdoor activities. It's also a very beer-focused city (surprised we're going here?) and to learn more about their 10+ breweries in the area we are taking The Bend Brew Bus Tour. We're getting picked up at our hotel, the Old St. Francis, that is attached to a microbrewery!
Bend Ale Trail. We have plans to do some Stand Up Paddleboarding along the river. Thanks to VisitBend.com, we've lined up a free fly fishing course. There's about a 90% chance Dave gets a hook stuck in his finger and a 95% chance he'll tangle the line beyond repair.
So get ready for a race report, food and drink reports, ugly photos (and some good ones too), and some fun over the next few weeks!
