Ride overview
Two days a year Crater Lake closes the East Rim Road to motorized vehicles. We are selecting the second day, September 16th, for our club ride. Crater Lake, with Wizard Island, is the deepest, and one of the most beautiful, lakes in the United States.
Route
See https://ridewithgps.com/routes/5119206 for the route map. Beginning at Rim Village Visitor Center the ride will circle the lake clockwise. The first six miles will be on shared road, but after that cyclists and pedestrians have the rode to themselves.
Distance: 32.4 Miles
Elevation: 4003 Feet
Yes, this is a hilly ride. Participants can also choose to ride a shorter distance out and back counter-clockwise at any distance.
Pace: Id say 14.5 mph on the flats, slower if group pace dictates, but there is no flats. You are either going up hill or down!
Accommodations:
We would like to stay at the Crater Lake Lodge on the nights of the 15th and 16th. Price is about $120 per person per night, double occupancy. If you want to stay in the lodge please indicate in the sign-up, and PLEASE sign up as soon as possible so that we can insure accommodations. You can also make separate accomodations.
Social:
We plan on having a pre-ride social the night before, and a post-ride social the night of. Stay tuned for more details.
Traffic
First six miles will have some traffic that expects to see cyclists out. The rest of the course is car free!
Ride Category:
Beginner if you want to take your time and do a shorter ride.
Intermediate / Advanced on recommended ride because of hills.

When Car Back is called, it means single file. These and other terms will be discussed at rides start. Each rider is responsible for his or her own safety and is expected to ride in a safe group riding manner, which does not create a danger to others.
Manage your RSVPs
The number of riders for each ride are limited by the event host, and based on the experience of the participants, the course, and conditions. If you sign up for the ride, and your schedule changes, you must change your RSVP to NO. This will allow riders on the waiting list to fill the vacancy and enjoy the ride. Please dont wait till the last minute. We will track no shows. Those who repeatedly no show may be moved to the bottom of the wait list.
