Mountains to Desert
Saturday, September 24, 2022
The Mountains to Desert Classic is a fully supported road ride starting in Telluride, CO on Saturday, September 24. The 19th annual event has several ways to participate: a 133-, 103- or 74-mile ride finishing with a fun celebration at Gateway Community Center.
The ride descends from Telluride’s alpine alley to the red cliff desert paradise of Gateway, along the San Miguel and Dolores River. It’s a gorgeous end of the summer ‘timed’ ride in a stunning setting—on quiet roads, with a motorcycle escort, sag wagon, mechanic, several aid stations, an excellent lunch with live music, fundraising prizes, an organic cotton ride t-shirt, commemorative water bottle and finisher medal.
The Mountains to Desert Classic is the annual fundraiser for the Just for Kids Foundation. The Just for Kids foundation provides vital funding for scholarships, operating & program support, capital & start-up projects, and new/updated equipment to deserving youth and youth organizations within the San Miguel watershed.
