With your entry fee, you'll be treated to the best supported cycling event you've ever experienced. Despite Alpine County's remote location, more than 700 volunteers work hard to make your ride as enjoyable as possible.
Death Ride® support includes 9 full rest stops, all supplied with a great selection of food and drink, plus 3 additional water stops at key locations on the course. But that's not all. We also include a huge lunch during the ride, Saturday night dinner, massages, and a super Bike Expo at Turtle Rock Park.
The ride is fully supported and assisted by local and state law enforcement, ambulance services, and many Alpine County non-profit organizations.
Tech support from a variety of local bike shops and sponsors is available to all riders the afternoon and evening before the ride at Turtle Rock Park. It's also offered during the ride in many locations.
Please bring extra bike supplies as this is a remote location and parts and supplies for your bike may not be readily available. The Alpine County Sheriff, California Highway Patrol and ambulance services will be on the course at various locations. Radio support is provided throughout the course by the Tahoe Amateur Radio Association. SAG support is provided by River City Beemers.
Cal Trans reported that in 2012 the amount of debris left behind by riders was the most ever. Please pack in and pack out. If you change tires or tubes on the side of the road do not leave the trash there. Please deposit it at the nearest rest stop or a dumpster.
