Coverage for Central Oregon, by Central Oregonians.
100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

A Bike of Yarn - It Could be Yours



One of the most colorful - like, actually colorful - bicycles you'll see during Cross Culture, or perhaps all weekend, is the creation by Bombing Yarn Over Bend, a local "knit graffiti" group.
The bike, known as the Lantern Rouge, was created for the 2009 edition of the Cyclocross Nationals and is now being auctioned off during a silent auction at the Oxford Hotel from 5 to 9 p.m. on Friday night. The group says the bike is "mostly rideable" and all proceeds from the auction will go to Bend's Community Bike Shed. If you snag this creation, your bike won't be the fastest out there, but it will certainly be the coziest.
