Recognized as one of the premier cycling events in the West, the Alpine County Chamber of Commerce invites you to participate in the Death Ride®, while enjoying the magnificent scenery and warm hospitality of Alpine County!
Registration along with the start and end point of the ride takes place at Turtle Rock Park just north (Hwy 89) of Markleeville, California. The five pass ride includes 129 miles and 15,000+ feet of lung busting climbing. You also have the option of riding one, two, three, four or five passes. For your safety, the first four passes will be closed at specific times to vehicular traffic. See course times.
