Registration is open!
Hosted by Fort Lewis College Cycling and presented by Morehart Murphy Auto Center, the Durango Fall Blaze offers three different tour options, including a 37-mile, 60-mile (Metric Century), and 100-mile (Century) ride. The tour starts when the clocktower rings 8am and a police escort leads the riders out from the center of campus. There are six food/aid stations along the way, support vehicles on the course and a party at the finish line back in the center of campus! The ridership is limited to ensure a quality event. The century course is of medium difficulty (6081 ft. elev. gain) when compared to centuries around the country, and the 37-mile and the 60-mile are easier.
All proceeds benefit the Cycling Scholarship Fund at Fort Lewis College. The scholarship is dedicated to rising young cyclists. Each scholarship recipient must possess a love for the sport, maintain a 2.5 or higher grade point average, and must be an active community member. Both men and women are eligible, of course.
Graduates of Fort Lewis College, the Fall Blaze is honoring our former students in 2015! If you are a FLC Alumnus, be sure to check the box on the registrationpage to get the special alumni package and join the alumni mass start when you sign up for the Blaze.
