This is a ride like no other! Outdoor challenges change lives, and Disabled Sports Eastern Sierra is doing just that through their year-round program of winter and summer sports for athletes with physical and cognitive disabilities. The freedom and exhilaration that is felt after skiing the top of a mountain, cycling over a rugged pass or catching a Sierra trout is unrivaled!
We need your help! The funds that we raise for the Sierra Cycle Challenge go directly toward supporting students with individualized instruction and adaptive equipment, so they can enjoy the same sports that you do. Your donations will allow an autistic student to take her first runs at Mammoth Mountain or a Wounded Warrior to remember that life is still worth living.
My Goal: Raise $1,200 This year I will not be riding, but wanted to still support those who are pedaling for this fundraiser and for our program. I have done this ride in the past and was amazed at the support! Please help me reach my goal with a tax-deductible donation to Disabled Sports Eastern Sierra. My fellow colleagues and volunteers will be climbing their way through the Eastern Sierra for three days and thinking gratefully of all who have donated along the way!
This is the path the riders will take around our beautiful backyard!
Day One: Mammoth Lakes to Falls Creek Ranch: 55 miles, 1,500 ft. elevation gain!
Day Two: Falls Creek Ranch to Grant Lake: 60 miles, 3,600 ft. elevation gain!
Day Three: Grant Lake to Mammoth Lakes: 35 miles, 2,900 ft. elevation gain!
