The DEATH RIDE Challenge is an event that started in 1979 by Bicycle Bon Gregorio and some friends from Fort Lew is college. The first year the small group did the event in two days starting on the Summer Solstice. It was a tough 2 days on the bike, however in 1980 and from then on they did the ride in1 day. The ride has never been official as far as time to complete. Mark Lowe of RMCC seems to have the fastest time doing the 235 miles, 16,500 feet of elevation in something around 12 hours & 30 minutes. Now the DEATH RIDE Challenge is official. We have complete SAG, Mechanical, Medical Support and 6 Aid Stations. The challenge will benefit ALS Research. A deadly disease that needs to be cured.

All participants will have a 17 hour window to complete the event starting on June 11th in Durango at the Srtater Hotel at 3:00 AM. The group will head north on the Million Dollar Highway over Colbank, Molas and Red Mountain passes before turning left in Ridgway towards Dallas Divide on the San Juan Highway. After descending Dallas Divide they'll turn on left onto highway 145 towards Telluride. After Telluride they'll climb Lizard Pass descending into Rico and then on to Dolores. After Dolores another left turn towards Mancos on Highway 184. In Mancos, the last left on to Hwy 160 towards Durango with some more climbing at Hesperus Hill. There will be a nice decent into Durango all the way to the end at the Strater Hotel.
