The Death Ride Tour - Going on 9 Years Strong!
DEATH RIDE Tour Inc., Charity Cycling Events was formed in 2009 as a 501c3 Non-Profit to support the War On ALS and help make a difference in the lives of those fighting this horrible, devastating disease. The concept is to put on challenging cycling events in some of the most beautiful parts of our county. Southern Colorado and the San Juan Mountains including the Million Dollar Highway, Red Rocks Park including the Front Range Mountains outside Denver and the Berkshires including Mt Greylock in Western Massachusetts.
The DEATH RIDE Tour Inc. was formed because of a love and passion for cycling and a dedication to support research for the devastating, always deadly disease ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) the Lou Gehrig Disease. The idea to put on challenging cycle events that would push the ability of the participant and at the same time bring a strong sense of accomplishment for a task well done. As said by
“ Bicycle” Bob Gregorio, “ The Death Ride is more than a cycling cycle: it’s a test of will. A conversation with one’s own faith of spirit to endure. The confidence gained by persevering in the face of hardship and exhaustion serves one in all facets of life”.
Ride Strong, Live Strong and Give Back (TZEDAKAH) More Than You Get.
Celebrating the Life of Jamie Fitzpatrick
The Honorary 2013 Angel of Life is Jamie Fitzpatrick. Jamie, his wife Quinn, and some very close friends rode in the Death Ride Tour IV in 2012. Jamie was an inspiration to everyone in his group as well as to anyone else that came across him on the ride.
Sadly, Jamie died later that year on December 2nd of a heart attack. He was only 61 years old. We ask for all of our riders to celebrate Jamie and his life and to use his passion, friendliness, and commitment to cycling to motivate them during their ride.
