We are happy to announce that registration is now open for the 2010 Alta Alpina Challenge: Riding the Wild Sierra presented by the Alta Alpina Cycling Club .
Date: June 13 Start Location: Turtle Rock Park, Markleeville CA
The Alta Alpina Wild Sierra is actually 4 events on one day in Alpine County California and Carson Valley Nevada.
The 8 Pass Challenge is a California Triple Crown ride and just may be the "Worlds Toughest Double Century" at 198 miles and 20,300 ft of climbing including the famous summits such as Kingsbury, Carson, Luther, Blue Lakes, Monitor and Ebbetts.
The Wild Sierra Century includes 3 passes, 101 miles and 12,000 ft of climbing in the heart of the Tahoe Sierra.
The Build Your Own Challenge allows you to be "As Wild as You Dare" by choosing to ride 1-6 passes, 30-160 miles. It is possible to do a 5 pass ride similar to the Death Ride without having to ride up Hwy 88 to Carson Pass!
The Kid Carson Challenge is 7 to 29 miles of "Fun in the Foothills" for families and kids.
There is something for just about every rider!
I'll do my best to answer any questions!
