2021, Ride the Rim Event Postponed until 2022

CRATER LAKE, OR – The Ride the Rim event scheduled for September 11 and 18 is being postponed until 2022 due to multiple factors including rising COVID-19 case rates throughout Oregon, limited availability of staff and volunteers, and ongoing unhealthy air quality from fires throughout the region.

The health and wellbeing of our visitors and staff is our top priority. The National Park Service and all the partners supporting Ride the Rim look forward to the return of the event in September 2022.

The National Park Service works with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as well as state, tribal, and local public health authorities and the Federal Emergency Management Agency to ensure the safety of park visitors, employees, volunteers, and partners. Because Crater Lake National Park is subject to federal parameters, Ride the Rim 2021 will follow all guidelines set in place during the time of the event in regards to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Depending on what guidance is issued, there is a possibility there will be conditions where Ride the Rim may be forced to cancel again. If the event is canceled for any reason, we will send communications via our newsletter and social media and place a notification on this website.
