Mountains to Desert Ride

FUNdraising Bicycle Ride

Ride from the beautiful mountains of Telluride to the incredible desert landscape of Gateway, CO. Choose your distance (72, 101 or 132 miles) and pass through golden aspens and brilliant red canyon walls to the destination at Gateway Canyons Resort.  

Each year, the Mountains to the Desert Bike Ride serves as the single fundraising event for the Just For Kids Foundation. Every dollar raised through participant fundraising before and during the ride is matched dollar for dollar by the Carstens' Family Fund at the Denver Foundation. That money is then awarded to San Miguel individuals seeking experiential learning or leadership opportunities as well as local organizations that promote self-sufficiency and responsibility.
