8th Annual Alpine (Up and) Downhill Challenge
This is the bike ride you've been waiting for...

8th Annual Alpine (Up and) Downhill Challenge
$40 ticket price* + service fees
Price includes ride + food + schwag + guided Alpine tasting.

We will leave BLAH at 8am on our bikes, and ride all the way up, up, up to Alpine Brewing. There you can purchase a pint (or two 1/2 pints, but no heavy drinking!!), check out the facility, and then ride back down, down, down. Approx 60 miles round trip.

OUR TYPICAL ROUTE: https://connect.garmin.com/course/5133501

At the end of the ride, back at Blind Lady, you will enjoy a guided tasting of Alpine's beers.

At BLAH we will have a buffet of fries, salads and pizzas. Oh, and a flight of Alpine beer...


This ride is not about speed. It's about community. (And beer.) So we will ride together, making sure not to leave brothers and sisters behind. It is a challenge uphill, as well as downhill. A decent bike is necessary. No clunkers. No townies. No cruisers.

Do not pass the ride leader!!!
Do not over do it at Alpine, we've gotta ride all the way back.
You must be able to ride 60 miles. Seriously!!
We would like everyone to wear a helmet. Seriously!!
You must bring at least one spare tube that fits your bike.
You must read the route before we ride.
You must drink plenty of water (the non-alcoholic type) the day/night before.
You must have at least one water bottle. We strongly suggest bringing 2 full bottles.
You must come with a good attitude.
Ride safe!
We will ride as a group with multiple re-group stops.
Do not pass the ride leader.
Do not pass the ride leader.
