Colorado Triple Crown Updates

Where did June go?!? Bring on July! And bring on the Colorado Death Ride!

  1. The Colorado Death Ride is this upcoming Saturday, July 5th in Durango! The last day to pre-register is Thursday, July 3rd! Mile-for-mile, this is the most spectacular ride on the RMCC calendar! Don't miss out on the opportunity to experience the San Juan Skyway...all in one day!
  2. I'd like to thank John Summerson for donating copies of his books, "The Complete Guide to Climbing (By Bike)" and "The Complete Guide to Climbing (By Bike) in Colorado" to this year's Colorado Death Ride. Copies of John's most-excellent books will be given away to lucky Death Ride participants. Copies of John's books can also be purchased here: The Complete Guide to Climbing by Bike. Please purchase copies of John's books, which have excellent descriptions of some of the best climbs in Colorado and other parts of the nation! These would be an excellent Christmas gift to any cyclist!
  3. I'd like RMCCers to be aware of a new double century event in the Telluride area...the Mountains to Desert/Telluride 200 miler on September 20, 2014! This event is sponsored by the Just for Kids Foundation. The Mountains to Desert/Telluride 200 miler is currently the only double century in Colorado that is not organized by the RMCC. Please support their event!! Registration is limited to 50 riders. A shorter option (133 miles) is available.
  4. Special thanks to Honey Stinger for their support of the RMCC!!
