Lake City Alpine 50

August 24, 2019

Lake City


Join us for the Inaugural Lake City Alpine 50

The Lake City Alpine 50 endurance mountain bike race starts in beautiful Lake City, Colorado, a small mining town located in the heart of the San Juan Mountains at 8,671 feet, and will follow the iconic Alpine Loop back to Lake City.  The race distance will be a little over fifty miles and will include over 7,500 vertical feet of climbing.  The race will head south out of Lake City on Highway 149 to some fun single track traversing the Lake City Ski Hill.  The single track will continue along the Lake to Lake trail above Vickers Ranch and will head by the Legacy Lodge before exiting onto Hinsdale County Road 30 leading to Lake San Cristobal.  Lake City’s namesake was formed by a rare natural earthflow called the Slumgullion Slide, which blocked the Lake Fork of the Gunnison River, creating the second-largest natural lake in Colorado and one of the most beautiful lakes in the entire state of Colorado.
