2014 Types of Rides

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.

Century Route (100 miles)
The Century Route heads out to Grants Pass where it crosses the Rogue River and then up to Robertson Bridge, back down to Wilderville, then into the Applegate Valley where it joins up with the 70 mile Route, through Jacksonville, Central Point, Gold Hill and finally Rogue River.  If you have purchased a meal please make sure you can make it back before 4:30 pm.  The following Rests stops are included:  Riverside Park in Grants Pass, Wilderville Store, Applegate Ranch, Doc Griffith Park in Jacksonville, Gold Hill Library and Valley of the Rogue State Park.

40 Mile
This new ride is for those riders who want to do a more than the 25 mile ride but don’t want to do the 70 mile route.  This ride heads up into the Evans Valley and then back down through Rogue River, over the Depot Street Bridge, then to Gold Hill where it meets up with the 100 and 70 mile routes, and then back to Rogue River.  The following Rests stops are included:  Evans Valley Community Center, Gold Hill Library and Valley of the Rogue State Park.

Gourmet Feast Tickets
Our gourmet feast will be available to anyone purchasing a ticket.  Salmon, Tri-Tip and a wide variety of salads, vegetables, and desserts. The deadline to purchase meal tickets is Sept. 5th.

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. Meal tickets are available for individual purchase at $10/pp.

All Rides begin and end at Palmerton Park.
