About Us

Join us for our 7th annual fundraising event, Ride to the Rock, on September 14, 2019.  Get ready to take in the beautiful scenic views that the Foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains have to offer:  all the while 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 ride will start at The Pickens Amphitheater,114 W Main Street, Pickens SC and travel north to Pumpkintown.  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. The 100k climbs Highway 178 to the Riverbend Lodge (formerly Red Lion Inn), just north of the Continental Divide in NC and returns to Pickens thru the Eastatoe Valley. The rides are fully supported with SAG vehicles and rest stops


    Day of ride registration begins at 8am and the ride 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

Music, Barbeque and a Beer Garden


After the ride enjoy a complimentary barbeque lunch.  Appalachian Ale House will furnish the beer garden.
