This weekend Silverton will host the start and finish lines for the amazing Death Race to Defeat ALS. This is a grueling 230 mile bicycle race around the San Juan Skyway. Five Mountain Passes and 16,000 vertical feet of climbing over three days will challenge the riders as they travel from silverton to Ridgeway, then up to Telluride, back down to Durango, and then all the way back up to Silverton on the third day.
Over 200 cyclists will participate and from what I’ve seen they are all business, raising thousands and thousands of Dollars to help find a cure for Lou Gehrig’s disease (ALS.) Come out and support the riders. This is a fantastic event that is 100% focused on doing good for the world.
