A new century in a remarkably beautiful place. AdventureCORPS puts on very well organized Ultra events such as the Furnace Creek 508 and the Badwater Ultramarathon. They also put on camps that help you “get away from it all”! Check them out!!!
HELL’S GATE HUNDRED – NEW CENTURY RIDE ON APRIL 18!
We are pleased to announce Hell’s Gate Hundred, a new AdventureCORPS century ride in Death Valley on Saturday, April 18. The route will visit locations and sights that are not visited in any other one-day cycling event in Death Valley National Park. We also plan to encourage all participants to attend a Ranger Program at the Furnace Creek Visitor’s Center on Saturday evening, then hike Golden Canyon the following morning (unguided; not under our auspices). The ride will be similar in format to our Spring and Fall Century and Double Century bike rides, except with no 200-mile option and a new, different, unique route, PLUS a greater emphasis on enjoying what Death Valley has to offer off the bike.
Mark your calendars now; stay tuned for more information and the registration link! We hope you are as excited as we are!
Here is a preview slideshow of the route, with photos from CORPScamp Death Valley in February, 2008 and from our personal trip there in December, 2008:
