Recognized as one of the premier endurance events on the West Coast, the Death Ride — presented by the Alpine County Chamber of Commerce — has welcomed riders from around the globe for the past 38 years, providing them with a challenging, memorable ride along the scenic roads of the Sierra Nevada mountains.
The course takes riders on a 129-mile journey with 15,000 feet of climbing over Monitor Pass on SR 89 (8,314′), Ebbetts Pass on SR 4 (8,730′) and Carson Pass on SR 88 (8,580′). Along the way, riders are treated to fully stocked rest stops and SAG support. Radio communications, technical and medical support are fully available as well.
Be sure to visit the many booths at the Death Ride Expo. Sponsors/exhibitors will provide rider giveaways, products and services ranging from tech-support to souvenir items. The expo takes place on Friday July 13 and Saturday July 14 (race day).
Plus, test your skills at Turtle Rock Park’s 18-hole disc golf course or the horseshoe pit. It’s free to play and open to all!
