Rim Tour

2017 & 2018 CLRT Cancelled

The 2017 & 2018 Crater Lake Rim Tours have both been CANCELLED. Major road construction, and associated cycling hazards, are expected on Rim Drive during the event time windows. In addition, the MVBC is hosting the Northwest Tandem Rally in July 2018, and will focus its resources on that event (see our Northwest Rides page).

We expect to be back in 2019 (Fri 8/23/2019 through Sun 8/25/2019) with the 39th annual CLRT. Keep an eye on for the latest information and status.

2019 CLRT

Friday, August 23 - Sunday, August 25

The Mid-Valley Bicycle Club Crater Lake Rim Tour is a one weekend bicycle camping event for families and individuals, of all ages and cycling skills, with an option for a breathtaking Saturday ride around one of Oregon's 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 first CLRT was held in 1976, and has been held almost every year since (see "III Annual Crater Lake Tour" in August 1978 Spokesman). This year marks the 39th anniversary of the CLRT.

Keep an eye on EVENT NOTICES for the latest CLRT information & registration schedule.

Read the Participants Guide at for lots of useful and important information about the tour. It includes an overview of the event, the route, SAFETY considerations, and brief descriptions of the abilities, training and equipment that are prerequisite to having a successful and enjoyable Crater Lake Rim Tour experience. SAG support is limited (see the guide).
