Join Our Central Oregon Adventure
Bend Relo is hosting a team building and client appreciation adventure-filled trip in Central Oregon, Southeast of Bend on June 17 and 18. It’s is going to be the highlight of our summer and we hope you and your significant other will attend, free of charge, as our guest. NW Outriders has a thrilling and scenic side-by-side ride planned and Wanderlust Tours have a happy hour, camp-side meals and secret vistas to share with us.
There are three main events: Side-by-Side tours, happy hour (with option to camp overnight), and hiking Thursday morning. You can attend all three of the events, or pick the events that work best for you
All costs for the tour will be covered, along with 3 meals. If you plan on spending the night, please bring your own beverages and camping gear. We are limiting our trip to adults only.
Please RSVP to Dave no later than Wednesday, June 10.
Option 1: Side by Side Adventure with Outriders Northwest
In our Outrider adventure, you’ll get the opportunity to take the wheel or sit back and enjoy all the terrain that Central Oregon has to offer. From wildlife viewing in Ponderosa forests to exploring underground caves, you’re guaranteed to have a great experience.
What to wear: Please wear long pants and durable, close-toed shoes. Because Central Oregon can be a little unpredictable, plan on bringing layers. You’ll be provided with helmets and gloves on-site.
What to expect: Want to get a taste of what it’s like to ride a side-by-side through the Central Oregon desert? Watch this video of a similar trip.
Where to meet us:
Sand Springs Campground, located 50 minutes from Worthy Brewery in Bend. The optimal route is to turn right off highway 20, before the town of Millican. Click here to open a google map to Sand Springs Campground.
