Death Ride 2007

Siclistas Take On the Death Ride 2007

The “Death Ride” is a 1-day event ride that covers a distance of 129 miles with 5 mountain passes and 15,000 vertical feet of climbing. The ride starts at elevation 6200’ and reaches a peak elevation of 8730’. As the riders complete each pass, a sticker is affix to their jersey number. When all five passes are completed, the rider is awarded a pin for his/her effort.

Two Siclistas, JohnnyBoy and BobbyG took on the challenge and completed all 5 passes.

This is JohnnyBoy’s 2nd 5-pass pin, he got his 1st one in 1997 Death Ride.

BobbyG got his 2nd 5-pass pin as well, his 1st one was in the 1995 Death Ride.

JohnnyBoy all smiles on the Carson Pass!

Yeah! 5 passes done!

5 pass riders get to autograph the poster which will be displayed along with the previous years "Death Rides" at the Alpine County Chamber of Commerce.

Back is Jack

... or that should have been "Jack is Back".

I just checked the 10 day forecast and Sunday the 15th shows a high of 76 degrees, perfect temp to re-visit Sierra Road.

I also checked Starbucks by Auto Mall and Fremont Blvd and they open at 6:30 so we'll meet around 6:30 with a roll time of 7am to escape some of the heat on top of Sierra. Remember, we got cooked on that day due to a late start.

So here it is folks... A taste of Sierra Road part deux.

Meeting Place:REI / Home Depot in South Fremont by Auto Mall pkwy and Fremont Blvd. Meeting Time: 6:30AM Roll by 7:00am

We were very closed to dehydration & heat stroke. The water fountain was a welcome sight for our unscheduled bird bath.
