The Ride for the Pass charity bike race benefits the work of the Independence Pass Foundation. The ride starts from the winter gate and ends approximately 10 miles east, on Highway 82 along the pass. The ride gains 2,500 feet of elevation across 9.5 miles.

The ride takes place the Saturday before the road opens to vehicles, so the best part is … no cars.

Race starts at 10 a.m. and you can register at the starting line.
