Whether you challenge yourself to a True Century, Metric Century, 50 Mile, or Family Ride, you'll experience all that Scenic Rural Oregon has to offer!
Beginning at the Historic Train Depot in Downtown Ontario, OR, you'll take a tour through the rustic country side, experience the majesty of the High Desert landscape, and make your way towards the stately Owyhee Dam before circling back towards town. Check out this site for mapping info or email Great Owyhee Ride Event Coordinator Kevin Goade (firstname.lastname@example.org) for details.
Whether you're part of a group of hard-core enthusiasts, ride with friends, or just want to bring the family along for the day, Youth & Team Discounts are available.
Nothing's more important to us than the well-being of of our riders! From a continental breakfast and bike tech support the morning of the ride, to multiple well stocked rest stops (serving the staples as well as a variety of fruit, proteins, & even some home-made goodies) along the way, to sag wagons, motorcycle patrols, and a strong local & state Law-Enforcement presence throughout the day, our goal is to ensure that EVERY rider not only goes out and comes back safe, but that they have a fantastic time as well. We like to think that the Great Owyhee Ride Against Hunger is one of the best supported rides in the Treasure Valley...but don't just take our word for it!
We'll even treat you to a post ride meal and cold beverage afterwards!
