Join us in October 2022 for the 2nd Annual Ride the Rapids Deschutes River at the Wasco County Fairgrounds. The ride in 2021 brought people together to experience the amazing beauty in October. Ride the Rapids takes you along the Deschutes River, winding you along the rapids, climbing to beautiful vistas and showing off mountain views and an incredible waterfall. This is a fully supported ride offering three different distances for all levels of experience! Plan on a full weekend of events including a Friday night kick off, afterparty at the Fairgrounds, beverages, music and delicious food.
This ride benefits the Maupin Deschutes River Athletic Complex which will activate thousands of participants by completing a World Class Athletic Complex and Music Venue. Register early for your spot and make an impact by supporting this ride in Wasco County.
