You’ll start and finish in Durango, CO. This will be one of the most challenging rides you will ever do. It is highly recommended that you properly train for the event.

  • Glad to see the bicycle repair station at Wash Park getting put to good use (even if we never like to see a fellow bicyclist in need)! Thanks for putting these up, @denverparksrec—you helped him get home safe!
