Bend Endurance Academy Spring Cycling Enrollment Now Open

Bend Endurance Academy (BEA) announces the opening of Spring Cycling Program enrollment. Starting April 13, 2020, BEA will offer afterschool mountain biking programs for youth ages 4-15 from Bend area schools. Programs include transportation directly from school to local trails, professional coaching, and lots of fun. Program enrollment is now open and participants are encouraged to enroll today as space is filling up quickly.

“We are excited to expand our afterschool mountain biking programs for youth in Bend,” said Virginie Calme, Afterschool Cycling Program Coordinator at Bend Endurance Academy. “In addition to our Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday programs, BEA is now offering Monday programs for school-aged children in Northeast Bend and Friday programs for youth attending REALMS Middle School, Cascades Academy and the Bend International School. We hope this expanded offering will help alleviate the need for afterschool care while providing a fun, active outdoor experience for kids.”

Program participants must know how to ride a bike off-road. Although BEA cannot accommodate absolute beginners, beginner and intermediate riders are welcome.

Programs begin the week of April 13th and run for eight weeks through June 5th at the following schools:
