Sep 20, 2014Ride the RogueRogue River, OregonAll 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.541-582-4488
