2020 Date Coming Soon!

Rogue River Greenway Foundation Invites you to
“Celebrate The Greenway”

Saturday, October 26, 2019 at 12pm

You can now walk, ride or run from Rogue River to Gold Hill on a multi-modal path linking the two cities.  COME CELEBRATE WITH US.  The event is free and we invite everyone.  Join us as we open the new path with a ribbon cutting at the north end adjacent to the Valley of the Rogue State Park,  Twin Bridges Rd and North River Road.

Take a casual ride / run / walk at a distance of your choice along the new piece of the Greenway.  Cyclists will start at 12:30, followed by runners then the walkers.  Cyclists may return on North River Rd. to avoid congestion. Rogue River Greenway Foundation will provide snacks and drinks.

We want to thank Jackson County, City of Rogue River, City of Gold Hill, ODOT and the Valley of the Rogue State Park for partnering to get this new piece of the Greenway done.  A very special thank you to the neighbors and friends along the Greenway.

RTR Riders 2010

Dear Sponsors, Cyclists and Volunteers,

It is with a heavy heart that we are cancelling Ride the Rogue 2019.

Our event coordinator can not continue working on our event and it is impossible to get someone in place to appropriately manage the event going forward.

Our number one priority is for the enjoyment and safety of the participants  We would rather disappoint by canceling than have an event that is not properly supported for our cyclists.

The Rogue River Greenway Foundation board extends our apologies and thank you all for your continued support in helping us build the Rogue River Greenway.

We will be refunding all monies collected from participants and sponsors.  This process WILL take a while, please be patient.  If you sent a check, we will be writing you one. If you paid through Eventbrite/Paypal, we will refund the same way.

  • If you choose to leave your funds with us as a donation, please let us know. “Ride the Rogue” is hosted by the Rogue River Greenway Foundation, a registered 501 (C) 3 Non-Profit. Your gift/s is therefore tax deductible under  Section 170 of the Internal Revenue Service Code for federal tax ID # 14-1907756.

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.

19.6 route

This route goes to Gold Hill, crosses over the Rogue River before heading north back to Rogue River and finishing at Palmerton Park.


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.

All proceeds support the development of the Rogue River Recreational Corridor and Greenway project.  Click on the Greenway logo to learn more.
