Mountains to Desert Ride

Mountains to Desert Ride


Location: Downtown Telluride in front of the Courthouse

On September 24, 2022, 200 cyclists will have the option of starting in Norwood, Colorado, for a more gentle 74-mile ride to the high desert community of Gateway (elevation 4672′!), Colorado, or they will begin the 103-mile M2D Classic at 8750′ in front of the Court House on Colorado Ave., in Telluride. After the 103 mile ride, the party awaits! There will be live music by regional favorites Heather and Douglas, Telluride Brewing will tap the beer, a delicious lunch will be provided by La Cocina de Luz, and awards and stories of a great day in the saddle will be shared. It is a downhill ride… but still it’s a century of pedaling!
