The ride of the season kicks off on Saturday, September 26 at 9 a.m. You’ll hop on the saddle of whatever steed you prefer from wherever you are to head out on a ride as long as you like! MTB, gravel, road? Of course! E-bike, unicycle, peloton? Go for it! Join the Durango Fall Blaze Strava Club (https://www.strava.com/clubs/durangofallblaze) for a bit of friendly competition to win one of three Osprey hip hydration packs. Compete for the most miles ridden, most vertical gained, and most vertical lost (lift-served access, anyone?). Grab a friend or more, and make it a memorable ride, taking photos along the way. Best photos posted on Instagram with #durangofallblaze and @rockymounts will be entered to win one of two Rocky Mounts hitch racks.
Registration for the Fall Blaze is $50 with a suggested $200 fundraising pledge. The first 100 folks to fundraise $100 will receive a four-ounce bottle of tire sealant from Orange Seal, while Optic Nerve sunglasses are up for grabs for the first 150 people reaching the $200 goal. Once registered, you’ll receive a personal fundraising link to share with friends, family, and employers so everyone has an opportunity to support this one-of-a-kind campaign.
Register at www.durangofallblaze.com by September 13 to receive a custom number plate for Blaze day. The first 500 people to register will also get a Fall Blaze neck gaiter provided by Champion System. All proceeds benefit FLC cycling program operations and scholarships.
The Durango Fall Blaze is made possible thanks to our sponsors Morehart Murphy Subaru, the Iron Horse Bicycle Classic, Orange Seal, Baird Wealth Management, Optic Nerve, 303cycling, Zia Taqueria, Fort Lewis College, FLC Skyhawk Cycling, Champion System, Osprey, and Rocky Mounts.
We look forward to riding with you soon and doing our best to make sure #crossiscoming.
