About the Trip

Trip Summary

OnaVelo in collaboration with Adventures in Yoga present Bike & Bend - a weekend ride and yoga retreat. We supply the bicycles, accommodation, and meals (vegetarian and vegan meal options available) for an overnight bicycling and yoga trip through the rolling foothills of the Rocky Mountains.

We will begin the trip in Millarville winding our way through quiet country backroads and rolling hills to our home for the night in Bragg Creek. Nestled in our cozy woodland home, we’ll stretch out with a yoga class, enjoy dinner and a bonfire, and rest comfortably before our Sunday ride home. We ride at a leisurely pace, take breaks, and of course, twice daily yoga classes will be offered by our in-house/on-bike yoga teacher. This trip is for cyclists, yogis, and those who have neither biked nor bent! No experience necessary, just a love of the outdoors and a sense of adventure. Ages 14 +.

The Country Manor

Overnight in a secluded private beautiful country manor in Bragg Creek on 150 acres of forested land nestled in the beautiful Rocky Mountains. Only 3 KM to Bragg Creek town center and close to Wintergreen golf course. Hike and explore on 5 km of trails. Enjoy dinner and a bonfire as the evening sunsets. Read a book by our sleepy creek. Enjoy the wildlife: you may catch a glimpse of deer, foxes, lynx, moose and bears.

This large and spacious (over 5000 ft2) luxurious but cozy country home with old world charm and a few eclectic antiques and furnishings will take you back in time. The home features multiple dining areas and living rooms. The living room has a fireplace. Games area features a stove. Lots of space for everyone.

Sleeping Arrangements

Think of it like a lodge or retreat centre with four bedrooms – shared bedrooms with multiple beds in two of the rooms and two bedrooms with a king or queen size bed. Each bedroom has its own bathroom en suite. Shared or single bed options are available. Room assignments will be filled at the time of registration and the total group size will be determined based on bed space. Please indicate your preference for sleeping arrangements. People joining the trip with a friend or partner may opt for sharing a bed. If you are joining the trip on your own, a single bed option would probably be most comfortable.

Bedroom 1: 1 queen bed, 1 single bed

Bedroom 2: 1 king bed

Bedroom 3: 2 queen beds, 3 single beds

Bedroom 4: 1 queen bed
