Lake City Alpine 50

Lake City Alpine 50

Lake City Alpine 50 Endurance MTB/Gravel

This high country ride will have you riding through some of the most majestic mountain views!

The Lake City Alpine 50 endurance mountain/gravel bike race that will start in historic Lake City, Colorado, a small mining town located in the heart of the San Juan Mountains at 8,671 feet, and will follow the iconic Alpine Loop back to Lake City.  The race distance will be a little over fifty miles and will include over 7,500 vertical feet of climbing.  The race will head south out of Lake City on Highway 149 to some fun single track traversing the Lake City Ski Hill. 

The single track will continue along the Lake to Lake trail above Vickers Ranch and will head by the Legacy Lodge before exiting onto Hinsdale County Road 30 leading to Lake San Cristobal.  Lake City’s namesake was formed by a rare natural earthflow called the Slumgullion Slide, which blocked the Lake Fork of the Gunnison River, creating the second-largest natural lake in Colorado and one of the most beautiful lakes in the entire state of Colorado.

Iron Horse Classic 2019
May
24
to May 26

Iron Horse Classic 2019

The Origins of the Iron Horse

Brothers Tom and Jim Mayer concocted the idea behind the first Iron Horse Bicycle Classic. Jim worked as a brakeman on the Denver & Rio Grande Western Railroad, which had operated the steam-powered line between Durango and Silverton since the 1880s. Tom was a young bicycling enthusiast who enjoyed riding alongside the railroad tracks.

One day in 1971, Tom challenged his older brother to a race to Silverton. Steam engine versus bicycle. They wagered a candy bar on the results.

When Jim pulled into the Silverton station, there was Tom, waiting for him. He’d beaten the train, despite having a longer road and having to climb two mountain passes. He won his candy bar, alright, and he had no idea that he had just started a famous race that would draw thousands of riders to southwest Colorado.

You can read more about the story of the Iron Horse by visiting Tom Mayer's website here:http://abundantadventures.com/IronHorse/IronHorseClassicOrigin.html

The First Iron Horse Bicycle Classic

Tom decided the best way to get others to try his favorite ride was to start a race. So in 1972, a group of 36 riders celebrated the train’s first run of the spring by accepting his challenge. Five of them managed to beat the train to Silverton, and it's been all uphill since then.

For the last half-century, the Iron Horse has become one of the premier bicycle events in the West. Durango is centrally located between Denver, Albuquerque, Phoenix, and Salt Lake City.

Now, riders travel to the Iron Horse from every state and several foreign countries. Each year, thousands of riders experience the thrill of descending into Silverton with hopes of beating the train. And whatever the results, simply finishing this classic ride is an accomplishment that keeps people coming back year after year to one of the best rides around.

Growth of the Iron Horse

Throughout the years, several events have been added to the traditional ride to Silverton. We now host Quarter Horse and Pedal Assist Quarter Horse rides to Purgatory, the Mountain Bike Race, the Kids Race, the BMX Straight Rhythm, and the La Strada La Plata Gravel Ride. We have events for professional racers and everyday enthusiasts. Memorial Day weekend in Durango is always full of cycling events and festivities. In 2018, we welcomed more than 3800 participants across all events, and we’re constantly evolving to welcome new styles of riding.

Come ride with us, and take part in this inclusive and exciting adventure we call the Iron Horse!
