The ROGR

Join us for the 4th annual ROGR - Ride On Gentleman's Ride - on Saturday, Oct. 14th leaving from Ride On Wooster at 7:30 AM. This race has two route choices that span 110 miles over 3 Ohio counties and up to 10,000 feet of climbing!

The ROGR 2017 will be a contest between 4 person teams of gentlemen/women. The courses are unsanctioned, unmarshalled, and all rules compliance will be based on the "honor system" and teams can choose between 2 courses:

  • Course 1 will be mostly paved roads, 110 miles and 9,000 feet of climbing.

  • Course 2 consists of 85 miles of gravel and pavement with 6,500 feet of climbing.

There are no rest stops along the way so come prepared!

Breakfast, lunch, and dinner will be provided.

Teams that register by August 1st pay $240.00/4 person team. After August 1st the registration fee is $280.00/4 person team. Register here or for additional registration details see FAQs - The ROGR 2017 below.

 

RULES

There will be plenty of circumstances along the course that will not be covered in the rules. When these circumstances arise, code-of-conduct best practices apply. Let's honor each other as gentlemen and gentlewomen. 

  1. To be considered an official finishing team, and to be eligible for the grand prize and trophy, your team must complete the entire course. If your team makes a wrong turn the team must go back to where the team left the route and continue from there. Each ROGR 2017 course presents challenges throughout the race! Any portion of the map left unridden will disqualify the team from any awards.

  2. The team may provide its own SAG vehicle. However, the team SAG vehicle CAN only help with food, water, and equipment. The SAG vehicle CANNOT provide a drafting opportunity for its team, and riders will not be permitted to hold onto or enter the vehicle while the race is underway.

  3. Your team's time will stop when the fourth member crosses the finish line.

  4. The underlying spirit of this event is to have fun while challenging yourself alongside good friends. The course terrain serves as a team motivator for overcoming obstacles together.

BE THE REASON SOMEBODY FINISHES THE RACE, NOT THE REASON SOMEBODY DOESN'T.

ROGR ON EVERYBODY!
