Registration will open April 1st, 2020.
Want to ride one in one of the most beautiful and toughest rides in Oregon? Actually, want to ride one of the most beautiful rides in the world? If you said yes, then know we’re applauding. Ride the Rim Crater Lake isn’t for the weak hearted. There’s a reason we caution participants to know what the route involves before committing to the challenge. But, if you’ve got the gall and the wattage to crank up some equally gorgeous and steep, long climbs, then Ride the Rim Crater Lake is also a heck of a lot of fun and a great way to experience Crater Lake National Park first hand.
Ride the Rim allows Class 1 bike assist. (No bikes with throttles allowed.) For those of you who do not have e-bikes, you could rent one there and join us for the ride and enjoy the gorgeous scenery.
The East Rim can take roughly 4 hours to complete, give or take an hour based on individual experience levels. Please plan accordingly and start at an appropriate time. Riders can choose to continue past the vehicle free portion and complete the entire Rim Drive, which makes the ride a total of 33 miles.
Ride the Rim Crater Lake is taking place on September 14th, 2020, and jointly hosted by Crater Lake National Park and the Discover Klamath Visitor Center and Convention Bureau. The ride is a vehicle free way to experience East Rim Drive with approximately 25 miles and 3,500 feet of climbing.
We will car pool, so can take turns driving with our passenger. We will drive out on Monday, ride on Tuesday and return on Wednesday. Or, for those who want, they can stay an extra day and do another day or riding. Registration opens April 1st. I will book motel rooms well in advance so we can all stay at the same place.
This looks like a truly amazing ride!
