Join us for our 11th annual fundraising event, Ride to the Rock, on September 30, 2023. Yes, Ride to the Rock is a GO!!! We have changed the routes this year due to a conflict with another event. However, you will still ride to Highway 11 and see the scenic views of Table Rock and the Foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Come and challenge 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 2023 ride will start at The Pickens Amphitheater,114 W Main Street, Pickens SC and travel north to the Pumpkintown area. Then on to the Cherokee Foothills Scenic Highway 11 with beautiful views of Table Rock Mountain. The 60k returns to Pickens thru the Eastatoe Valley. In 2023 the 100k climbs Highway 178 to the rest stop in Rocky Bottom and then continues on Highway 178 to Camp Hannon Road. At that point the route will turn around and return down 178 to Rocky Bottom and Pickens thru the Eastatoe Valley. The rides are fully supported with SAG vehicles and rest stops.
ALL RIDERS SHOULD LOOK AT THE ROUTE LINKS BELOW TO VIEW THE NEW ROUTES.
Day of ride registration begins at 8am. The rides will start at 9am.
A complimentary RIDE TO THE ROCK t-shirt will be included for all pre-registered riders.
*The 40k ride does not go all the way to Table Rock
After the ride enjoy a complimentary barbeque lunch with a beer garden.
