CANCELLED: DWC Silverton Rum Ride — Saturday, September 22, 2018

This event has been Cancelled

So far interest in this ride has been tepid. If you are interested in doing it please send us an email by Sunday, September 2!

Thanks – Spencer & Mel

Update: The ride, including shuttle, lunch, and beverages will cost no more than $50 per DWC member. Might be less, but we wanted to give you an idea of price.

The rum bar is gone, but the concept is the same: Ride Durango to Silverton at a fun/social pace, or to Red Mountain Pass and back to Silverton for the faster, early starters. We sag wagon it and end up having lunch and cocktails somewhere up there. We’ll hire a minivan or two to transport bikes and riders back to Durango after. We also have a bag drop so folks can change when they get to Silverton.

With the fires and train issues hitting San Juan County’s economy hard this year, we think it would be good bring a group of cyclists to Silverton in the fall to help strengthen the end of their summer economic season. Even 20 or so riders having lunch up there can make an impact!

Not sure how much it will cost but since this is a members-only ride we aren’t interested in turning a profit. And, we don’t yet know where we’ll have lunch (or what the signature cocktail will be!) The only thing we do know is the date, Saturday, September 22.

So, if this is something you want to do, mark your calendars and send us an email letting us know you want IN!

We will hammer out the details in the next week or so. Just wanted to let you know ahead of time in case this is something you want to do!
