Crater Lake Rim Tour
August 26-28, 2016 - Diamond & Crater Lakes
About the Ride
The 38th annual Mid-Valley Bicycle Club Crater Lake Rim Tour is scheduled for Saturday, August 27, 2016. Come join us for a breathtaking ride around one of Oregonís most scenic wonders.
We have reserved camping on the southeast side of Diamond Lake, at Broken Arrow Campground, for Friday and Saturday nights. Many participants choose not to ride the rim, and instead enjoy the national park and campsite areas in other ways, including walking or cycling on the very accessible Diamond Lake trails.

The Saturday rim ride is designed to start and finish at Diamond Lake for a total trip distance of 61 miles. Some riders may elect to drive to the rim and then ride the rim only, for a total distance of 34 miles. Transportation to and from the rim will not be provided by MVBC.
Most participants choose to ride back to the campground from the rim for an exhilarating finale. Good physical conditioning and alpine gearing (25-inch low gear) are recommended since the ride is quite hilly and reaches elevations greater than 7500 feet.
