Death Valley Cycle
Get ready for the ultimate cycle for charity! Death Valley National Park is located in the South California Desert in Nevada. Many people overlook the park due to the misguided belief that it is lifeless, but this 3.4 million acre park is not only the largest park in the USA, but arguably the most striking specimen of Mother Earth – Join us on this incredible cycling challenge as we conquer 420km of Death Valley by bicycle!
The Valley itself is 130 miles long, between 6 and 13 miles wide and is surrounded by steep and beautiful mountain ranges.
Our cycling challenge will highlight the most dramatic and most interesting sights of the region including awesome views of both the highest and lowest elevation locations in the contiguous 48 states of the USA. In addition, our charity bike ride sees us finish in the bright lights of Las Vegas, where we celebrate our charity challenge achievements.
