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.
