Located in the stunning California Alps, the Death Ride® course covers the traditional five mountain passes. This challenging course includes climbing both sides of Monitor Pass, both sides of Ebbetts Pass, and the final climb up the east side of Carson Pass.

Riding 129 miles and climbing 15,000+ feet all in one day is a daunting task! To make this event even more difficult, the course is located in the Sierra Nevada mountains at elevations between 5,000 feet and 8,732 feet.

Death Ride® support includes 9 full rest stops, all supplied with a great selection of food and drink, plus 3 additional water stops at key locations on the course. But that’s not all. We also include a lunch during the ride, Saturday night dinner, massages, and a super Bike Expo at Turtle Rock Park.

Riders can opt to ride any number of the five passes of the full course.
