Brief description: The Colorado Death Ride is an EPIC ride across southwest Colorado’s spectacular San Juan Skyway, including the mountain towns of Durango, Silverton, Ouray, Ridgway, Placerville, Telluride, Rico, Dolores, and Mancos. Crossing five high altitude alpine passes, the Colorado Death Ride features jaw-dropping mountain scenery that is second-to-none! The San Juan Mountains, which encompass nearly 12,000 square miles and nearly all of southwestern Colorado, are arguably Colorado’s most spectacular mountain range. The San Juans boast over 100 peaks that top 13,000 feet and 14 of Colorado’s 54 sky-scraping 14,000 foot peaks. Do you have what it takes to become a Colorado Death Rider??
