I’ve done the ride 4+ times and it’s a GREAT Ride. Nelson Vails will be joining the ride now too. Lot’s of climbing and beautiful scenery! -Patti Rosenthal
You will get your chance to ride the DEATH RIDE Tour VI, June 6-8th with Olympic Silver Medalist Nelson Vails,
“We All Ride The Same Road”
The road began in Harlem, NYC for “The Cheetah”, Nelson Beasley Vails. Harlem may seem an unlikely beginning for a cycling legend, but it was there that Nelson started on the path to become the first African-American to win an Olympic medal in cycling. His silver medal from the 1984 Los Angeles Games is the crowning jewel to a prolific and successful career on both the track and road. Cycling has taken him down many roads around the world, and Nelson’s contribution to cycling’s history was recognized with his induction into the US Bicycling Hall of Fame in 2009.
Nelson will be with the DRT from Rider Check-In June 5th for meet & greet, photos & autographs and all the way through the conclusion of Day Three including the barbecue and the finishing ceremonies.
