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.

Travel to mind-blowing mountain biking destinations around the globe with some of the world's best riders

A new film from Teton Gravity Research



The newest film from Teton Gravity Research is directed by Jeremy Grant and captures the love-at-first-site experience of mountain biking. From the producers of "UnReal" and the director of "Where The Trail Ends" comes "Accomplice," an homage to all the crazy adventures and crazier comrades that come from a life lived in pursuit of the next awesome ride.

On the surface, "Accomplice" is pure scenery porn for those hungry for a glimpse of the world's best mountain biking locations. But TGR takes the story a step further to tell the story of the bicycle: From this perspective a bike is not just a mode of transportation but a vehicle for the human spirit.

The film has been on a drive-in, road-trip tour since July 8 where the filmmakers say the old school vibe and the occasional car horn has only added to the experience. Here in Bend, it premieres Friday at the Tower Theatre with limited seating to spread out the crowd.

Bend premiere of ACCOMPLICE
Fri., July 17, 5pm, doors, 6pm show. 8pm doors, 9pm show
