Monarch Crest Crank
September 17 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm| $75
Known as one of the Top Ten Mountain Bike Rides in America, the Monarch Crest Trail is definitely one of the best rides you will ever do. The ride starts on top of Monarch Pass at a lofty 11,312 feet and quickly climbs to the Continental Divide. The singletrack follows the Divide for 10 miles above treeline through rock gardens and fields of wildflowers, climbs steep hills and drops back into thick pine forests.
This historic fundraiser benefits the Alliance Against Domestic Abuse (AADA). Wrap up the final day of Salida Bike Fest with one of the best mountain bike rides in the country. Your entry fee and individual fundraising efforts will raise money for the AADA.
Whether you’ve participated every year or this is your first time, this is your chance to ride the Monarch Crest Trail and help victims of domestic violence and sexual abuse. Learn more at monarchcrestcrank.com
