Ride the Rogue

September 21 2019
Rogue River, Oregon, USA

Join us at Palmerton Park  in Rogue River, Oregon.  The event  will offer exciting rides, gourmet feast, live music and lots of fun for the whole family to enjoy.All rides take you through stunning areas of natural beauty and colorful history. From the majestic Table Rocks of Sam’s Valley, to the sparkling Rogue River, the vineyards of Applegate Valley and the lush splendor of Evans Valley, the experience will be one you won’t soon forget.

You won’t want to miss the post race celebration 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.  

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.  All the rides have the same finish on the Rogue River Greenway Path through the Valley of the Rogue State Park.

Rest Stops and Finish Celebration
Rest stops are manned by volunteers from various businesses and organizations from around the Rogue Valley.  The comment cards from our last Ride the Rogue rated our rest stops as “incredible and filling”.  The one complaint was “they wouldn’t have eaten so much on the ride if they realize we were serving up a gourmet feast at the finish.”   A grand post ride celebration usually including Salmon and Tri-tip steak, live music, raffles, silent auction and more at the finish at Palmerton Park Arboretum in Rogue River.
