16th Annual Bend's Big Fat Tour
One of Bend's most beloved mountain bike events is back again this year, packing the weekend full of rides, which are not races, but rather low-key chances for riders to enjoy the sport and the scenery. For the more hardcore riders, there are "epic" rides, but the rest of us can ease into "recreational" rides. Visit bendsbigfattour.org for details, schedule and registration.

The weather wizards, high up in their meteorological towers, have mentioned that this winter could be totally gnarly, sick, insane and/or nasty, which is snow-speak for "it's going to be particularly snowy."

A quarter of the proceeds go to MBSEF. If you have things you would like to sell at the swap, come to the Bus Barn on Thursday between 10am-7pm or Friday between 9am-6pm. 8am Saturday, Oct 16. Mt. Bachelor Bus Barn, 115 SW Columbia Ave.
