Ride for the Pass Sat. May 18, 2019 10:00 AM The Ride for the Pass is a scenic recreational or competitive 10-mile road ride starting in Aspen, Colorado and climbing 2,300 feet up Highway 82 toward Independence Pass along the Continental Divide BEFORE the highway is opened to cars for the season. The Ride benefits the Independence Pass Foundation's restoration work on the Pass. There is an after party at the St Regis hotel from 1-3:30 with drinks, snacks and giveaways.
Location:
The start is at the winter closure gate five miles east of Aspen on Highway 82. If you enter Aspen from the west and stay on Highway 82, you can’t miss it. There will be two finish lines: The first at Weller Lake turnout, just over two miles from the starting line, for families and recreational riders, and the second at the Independence ghost town site ten miles from the start (climbing 2,300 feet, ending at an elevation of 10,800 feet).
