The 4th Annual Jam the Damz Colorado Charity Ride will take place on Saturday, Oct. 5, 2013. The ride, which offers 10K, 50K, 70K and 100K courses, benefits three area organizations that provide sports and recreation opportunities for individuals with disabilities and physical challenges.
Jam the Damz began in 2010, as collaboration between Craig Hospital, U.S. Handcycling, and Adaptive Adventures to raise awareness and funding for adaptive sports and recreation in Colorado. The 2012 ride raised more than $60,000 for the three organizations.
The 2013 ride is open to all ages and abilities / “disabilities”, and experience levels and 90 percent of the ride will be held on bike paths in the foothills surrounding Bear Creek Lake Park in Morrison. The route is moderate, rolling hills and features climbs over the Bear Creek and Chatfield reservoir dams.
Registration fee is $55 per rider. Each rider is expected to raise or contribute an additional $45 minimum. Families and teams are encouraged to ride together.
