The Rogue River Greenway Foundation Board of Directors and the Ride the Rogue (RTR) Event Team invite you to attend the September 2018 Ride the Rogue Event. A special Thank You to our many event Sponsors and Contributors – we could not do this without you!
Cyclists come from every corner of Oregon and numerous other states, as do our volunteers. What an amazing group of people!
The RTR event is our main fund raiser to help build the Rogue River Recreational Corridor and Greenway (RRG) and each year the event grows.
Your continued support means a great deal to this board, to the RTR event and to this project. Most importantly, it provides real and tangible resources to help build the Rogue River Recreational Corridor and Greenway project.
A Southern Oregon Cycling Adventure!
All the rides have plenty of rest stops so you can ride light, and as fast or casual as you like! Sag support is available if you need it.
Century 99 mile
This route takes in as much of the Rogue River as possible. All the rest stops for this route are on the beautiful and scenic river so bring your camera, you might see bald Eagles soaring over the river or nesting in a tree along the river. This route has 5 rest stops for refueling and taking in the scenic river. Lunch is provided for riders on this route
Metric 62 mile
This route is just a shorter version of the Century route with 3 rest stops along the Rogue River. Lunch will be provided for riders on this route.
40 mile route
This is a shorter version of the metric route with 1 rest stop on the Rogue River. We recommend buying a meal ticket and having a late lunch at Palmerton Park after the ride, while listening to the sounds of the band. Maybe even buying a beer for you and your friends.
This route goes to Gold Hill, crosses over the Rogue River before heading north back to Rogue River and finishing at Palmerton Park.
NEW THIS YEAR Mix Terrain Ride
To celebrate the TEN year anniversary of Ride the Rogue we are adding a Mountain Bike Option! This 20 mile loop journeys through the paved bike path along the Rogue River through Valley of the Rogue State Park. The path leads you to the newly developed “MOTR” mountain bike park and 10 miles of epic Southern Oregon mountain biking! This off road ride offers challenging climbs with fast flowing down hills and “flow” trails that will thrill even the most experienced mountain biker. The trail offers outstanding views that grow larger the higher you climb. From the top of the mountain, there is a nearly 360 degree panoramic view of nearby Table Rocks, the Rogue River, Mount McLoughlin, the Cascade Mountain Range leading to Crater Lake, and much of the Rogue Valley! After you take in the views and have caught your breath, get ready for 5 miles of thrilling descents back to the main route. Options will be provided to take in more of the park to enhance the Mountain Bike experience.
The post race celebration will be held at the Palmerton Park Arboretum, a beautiful park nestled along the banks of sparkling Evans Creek. Big trees, green lawns, a pedestrian suspension bridge and the friendly and supportive community make this an amazing place to hold the RTR event. This is also why we limit the amount of riders to 1200 as this location is special and it would be difficult to replace without losing the true quality of the experience.
Ride the Rogue is more than a ride, it showcases the splendor of Southern Oregon’s incredible beauty, it’s people and epicurean delights.
