Registrations have been very high for Ride to the Rock. Due to this we have decided to limit the riders to 200. We want to be able to maintain social distancing and do not feel we can do that if we have more than 200 riders. If you know someone planning to ride who hasn’t registered yet, please let them know they need to register soon. If we reach the 200 limit, we will NOT have day of the ride registrations.

08/13/2020

Yes, Ride to the Rock for 2020 is a GO!!! We will have the same great routes as last year with beautiful scenic views of the Foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, but some things will change. Governor McMaster is now allowing sporting events for less than 200 participants and we must practice social distancing and wear masks. We will work hard to make the Ride to the Rock safe for the riders and volunteers. There will be changes at the registration and afterwards at the meal. But you will still be challenging yourself to complete tough mountain climbs. Sponsored by The Pickens Rotary Club, the ride begins in Pickens and challenges riders with 3 routes to choose from: 40k*, 60K, and 100K rides.

The 2019 routes for the 40k, 60k and 100k routes will be the same as last year’s ride. The 100k route will climb Highway 178 to the continental divide up to the Riverbend Lodge, this is the same Inn as last year just a new name. Thanks to Pumpkintown Cafe, The Rock at Jocasse and the Riverbend Lodge for hosting rest stops for the Ride to the Rock. The fourth rest stop is also at the same location at the intersection of Eastatoe Creek Road and E Preston McDaniel Road. Hope to see you in 17 days.

I want to bring my 10 year old son but he has a BMX bike. His bike is light but just one gear. We were planning on riding the 40k together. Would this be too difficult for a BMX bike as far as inclines go? He has plenty of stamina for long rides but if the inclines are a killer on the 40k route, I will leave him at home :)
Does anyone have any idea when the Ride to the Rock will be in 2020?
What is the start time? I have seen 8:00. And I have seen 9:00.
As soon as I relocate to your area, I am in!!
It is time to sign up to ride for charity.
Is this ride going to happen this year? Thanks!
