From one Adventurous Spirit to Another…The Death Ride is Insane

Saturday In Alpine County California is Filled With Some of The Worlds Most Daring Riders Sierra Rec Magazine – Alpine County Ca,  July 2018 – Here we are on the eve of the 2018 Death Ride in Alpine County Ca, and as I sit here planning my alternative route in the morning for my hiking adventure in Desolation Wilderness, I can’t help but wonder what kind of personality trait is it, that someone would want to put themselves and their body through the Death Ride Experience?  Listen I drive these 5 mountain passes routinely on the way to my weekly adventures and on my wilderness day hikes I have even climbed up a trail that may have covered that type of altitude gain (once) on my journey. But I can’t even fathom the type of pain associated with climbing 5 mountain passes over 129 miles of highway covering over 15,000 feet in elevation change all in one day.  Let’s not even discuss that this is in July, which is the hottest season of the year typically in Alpine County Ca.  One word comes to mind “RESPECT!” I believe it was 2008 that I was first introduced to the Death Ride, as a newbie to the Sierra, by chance I actually drove up to Alpine County out of the Carson Valley on the eve of the ride. There were bikers everywhere and atypical...
