Ride the Rim!
Here’s your chance to knock the Crater Lake rim ride off of your bucket list. There will be two vehicle free days on East Rim Drive this year and we’re offering a ride for September 18th on our calendar. https://www.nps.gov/crla/planyourvisit/vehicle-free-days-on-east-rim-drive.htm
The ride will begin at 10:30 AM at Rim Village. The later start time is to allow early birds time to drive the 4 hours, 15 minutes (give or take) down from Portland on the same day, or cyclists seeking additional challenges to bike up to the Visitor Center from outside of the park. Camping and lodging is available in the area which many will probably prefer. Normal Park entry fees apply, but club members should be able to carpool to reduce fees. The Ride the Rim (https://ridetherimoregon.com) is generously supported by Discover Klamath and the National Park Service. The separate registration is free and open until September 17th, but Discover Klamath suggests that a donation of $10 per rider would be gratefully received. You can register for the event here: https://ridetherimoregon.com/registration/
Mileage wise the ride is relatively short at 35 miles but be prepared to make up for the short distances with a total of 4,200 ft of climbing in rollers through spectacular scenery. There are four official supported rest stops in addition to the support stop at Rim Village. Ride the Rim official map is here: https://ridetherimoregon.com/uncategorized/route/
We will be treating this as a moderate paced regroup ride with stops at likely scenic locations and a coffee stop at the end. You can find the map and cue sheet we will be using here: https://ridewithgps.com/ambassador_routes/592-crater-lake-rim-loop-from-crater-lake-lo
