The ride is a charity event designed to give aid at a local level. Proceeds from the race will go to the Montelores Cancer Care Fund, a grant program dedicated to individuals living with cancer in Montezuma and Dolores counties. The Montelores Cancer Care Fund was started by the Southwest Memorial Foundation. To learn more about the Southwest Memorial Foundation, click the link below.
The Ride of the Ancients was started by the Southwest Memorial Foundation. The ride will be based on a Gran Fondo, a ride that will give any individual, even the "weekend warrior," a chance to ride for a cause. This will be our third year, and we are hoping for more growth. Last year was another success, we were able to give money to the Montelores Cancer Care Fund. Look forward to a pre/post-race party with local food and fun for the whole family starting at 2:00 p.m.
