The next Ride the Rogue event is set for Sept. 21st, 2013 at Palmerton Park in Rogue River . New Routes and lots of fun for the whole family to enjoy. Visit www.ridetherogue.org for more information and to sign-up for the event.
This event takes place in the community of Rogue River in Southern Oregon with over 200 volunteers that help make this event something really special. You will feel like you really have found Mayberry and everyone is welcoming you home. The red hat ladies in full regalia, the garden club ladies, the Young Marines, Chamber of Commerce members, City Council members and even the Mayor take part in this exciting event to help build the Rogue River Greenway.
The start and finish celebration are at the Palmerton Park Arboretum, a beautiful park with a large variety of trees and plant life all nestled along the banks of 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.
All four rides take you through stunning areas of natural beauty and colorful history. From the majestic Table Rocks of Sam’s Valley, the sparkling Rogue River, the vineyards of Applegate Valley or the lush splendor of Evans Valley, the experience will be one you won’t soon forget. Interesting historic sites and a glimpse into the past will be highlighted along the different ride maps.
The Century includes scenic areas in both Jackson and Josephine County while the Metric, Quarter Century and Family Wildflower rides are in Jackson County. All rides & hikes showcase the incredible beauty of the Rogue Valley scenery, its people and epicurean delights.
