About the Trip Hosts: John Hunt has been coming to Bend as a bike racer in the Cascade classic since 1995. In his early years of racing the road, he was always drawn to ride the off-road trails and roads of Central Oregon. In 2010 he finally traveled to Bend with a mountain bike, and after that he was hooked. John has been exploring the myriad dirt roads and trails by gravel bike and mountain bike every year since. Dario Fredrick first visited Bend in 1999 with his mountain bike and has become a regular since.

After discovering more of the incredible trail networks participating in two editions of MTB Marathon Nationals, soon after he was introduced to the vast expanse of dirt and gravel roads on a cross/ gravel bike. His exploration of the off-road riding in Central Oregon and immersion into the welcoming, bike-friendly atmosphere of Bend have inspired him to share his experiences with others seeking like-minded adventures. They both share a love of the town, the mountains, and most of all the gravel riding.
