2019 Skyline Summit Challenge

  • Mon, July 29, 2019
  • Sat, August 03, 2019
  • Various

The weekly evening ride leaders have teamed up once again to bring you the 2019 Skyline Summit Challenge. Each evening ride on the week of July 29th will tackle one of the skyline summits, then on the weekend the Challenge will culminate with a beautiful and fun Devil's Slide ride (with a Planet of the Apes option).

This is a chance for you to "bag" five of the most prestigious Skyline summits in the same week, up to 167 miles and 15,487 ft of climbing, so come join us!

Saturday riders will enjoy a pizza and beer celebration afterwards.  To sweeten the deal - we are giving away "prizes" as follows:

Saturday Sizzle: Pizza and beer

Bronze: Ride 2 evening rides + Saturday = you get ice cream with your pizza and beer

Silver: Ride 3 evening rides + Saturday = same as Bronze + a club mug

Gold: Ride 4 evening rides + Saturday = Silver + a pair of club socks
