Submitted to the Tribune

The Alta Alpina Cycling Club, is hosting its annual fundraising event, the Alta Alpina Challenge, on Saturday, June 28.

Route options exist for cyclists of all abilities. Participants can choose from typical metric and century routes, or build their own ride.

Formally offered are three rolling foothill routes. Choose to parallel the Carson River or cruise the Carson Valley. Climbs of one or more Sierra passes can always be added or join elite international cyclists who will be tackling another option, The World’s Toughest Double Century, a sanctioned California Triple Crown ride.

This is a small (499 rider limit), safe, event with famously strong support. Frequent rest stops with food and refreshments, roving assistance vehicles, a post-ride dinner, and a unique personalized bib suitable for framing are just some of the offerings.
