Celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Monarch Crest Crank on September 17th

It’s the 25th anniversary of the Monarch Crest Crank, a mountain bike fundraiser that benefits The Alliance, which helps victims of domestic and sexual abuse.

The Monarch Crest Crank is set for Sunday, Sept. 17th. Your entry fee of $95 will include the ride, on-course support, a shuttle to the Crest and back to downtown Salida, and post-ride party at Riverside Park with food and beverage, music and more! 

The Monarch Crest Crank has a 100 rider limit, and in 2022 the event sold out in early July, so register early!

The Monarch Crest has been named as an IMBA EPIC route. This is a high-altitude mountain bike ride that follows the Continental Divide above treeline for several miles before dropping thousands of vertical feet into the valleys below. Be ready to ride 25 miles of trail that will take you 3 to 5 hours to complete. The first 10 miles are the most challenging with some steep climbs, thin air and challenging singletrack.

You can sign up for the Monarch Crest Crank at monarchcrestcrank.com.
