USFS Approves Mountain Bike Park at Timberline

Posted on Tue, Nov 27, 2012 at 8:36 AM

Good news for mountain bikers—the U.S. Forest Service recently gave Timberline Ski Area the green light to move forward with its proposed mountain bike park and trail system.
Timberline is going big and has already contracted with Gravity Logic, the B.C.-based consulting firm that designed the now famous Whistler Mountain Bike Park.

We could be riding new trails by the end of the 2013 season.

Bend Velodrome Project Party A Success

BVP continues along their path, hoping to build a velodrome in Bend.

Posted By on Wed, Feb 1, 2012 at 8:00 AM

The goal of the Bend Velodrome Project Party, according to Board Member and Source contributor Michelle Bazemore, was to attract 100 people and raise $1000.

Mission accomplished.

The party, hosted by GoodLife Brewing Co. last Thursday, drew in more than 275 people and, in the process, raised $2,404. The group will use the money to file for federal tax-exempt status as they move forward with their goal of bringing a world-class velodrome to Bend.

To learn more about the Bend Velodrome Project and their mission read our blurb on them in last week's issue or on tsweekly.com.

Deschutes Brewery is back with a vengeance.

Posted By on Wed, Feb 1, 2012 at 3:53 AM

 

Deschutes Brewery has been dominating the world of craft beer since their opening in 1988. When the brew pub closed in order to expand into the adjoining building, people had many other excellent breweries to choose from while awaiting Deschutes' return. However, the 2 hour wait some folks experienced during last weeks soft opening shows their hearts were set on the return of the original.

The grand opening is February 1st, which is also when Deschutes launches their newest beer, the Imperial Bitter. I was lucky enough to get an early taste of the new brew and I can say without reservation that it’s fantastic. The dark, smoky flavors meld into a lovely, biting tang. There's also a new bar menu, as well as several new pizza’s. Executive Chef Matt Neltner has been experimenting with crusts and flatbread, bringing his love of Chicago pizza to the kitchen. The pizzas I tasted were phenomenal and a testament to a uniform excellence the new Deschutes is bringing to its menu.

The new expansion catapulted their seating capacity from 141 to 306, added 7,500 more square feet and 50 new employees on staff. Some might think the Deschutes brew pub will lose some of the intimate charm of the original space, but owner Gary Fish is quick to note that he hopes it still feels like Bend’s community pub. After my time there tonight, I’d have to agree with him.
