Over the years I have gained a love and passion for cycling and a desire for TZEDAKAH. Tzedakah is Hebrew for: To Give Back… To be Righteous… To do the Right Thing. The DEATH RIDE Tour… Ride To Defeat ALS fulfills those needs and since its inception has become a very rewarding experience, not only for myself, but for the over 600 participants who have conquered the very challenging, 235 mile, 16,500 feet of climbing loop in Southwestern Colorado. My father, Irvin Sopinsky died of ALS at the age of 45 when I was 13. He battled this horrible disease for 7 years. The DEATH RIDE Tour… Ride To Defeat ALS is a registered 501c3 Non-Profit and all the proceeds are donated to the Rocky Mountain Chapter of the ALS Association and the Blazeman Foundation War on ALS.

Peak to Peak Cycling's 2017 DEATH RIDE Tour VIII ...Ride To Defeat ALS ...For Those Who Care
We are raising money to support all the efforts to find a cure for the horrible disease ALS - Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis as known as the ( Lou Gehrig Disease). Since 1941 when NY Yankee star Lou Gehrig died, not much has changed about saving people from this always deadly disease.
We are cycling one of the hardest loops in the country, 16,500 ft of climbing over 5 mountain passes and 235 miles over three days. Some of us are even doing the ride in a single day, with a time cut-0g of 18 hours!
Please support our P2P team effort with a donation you feel comfortable with. Thank you!
