Skull Valley Loop Challenge poster2015 reducedClick here for: the results from our 2015 Skull Valley Loop Challege, which took place September 20.

Thanks to all our fantastic volunteers for helping to make the ride such a success! Thanks to everyone who rode - you brought the energy and excitement! And thanks to all our fabulous sponsors (find them at the bottom of this page) for making the ride possible!

This scenic 54-mile road ride includes more than four thousand feet of elevation gain—offset by four thousand feet of descent. Click here for GPS info. We time each rider, but it is not a race besides your personal race against the clock.

The Challenge begins at the historic Prescott Courthouse Square. After leaving town, riders drop into the serenity of Skull Valley before climbing out through the majestic, forested Spars and returning to the Courthouse Square. 

Registration is closed (or click the poster). Only $45 before August 24, $55 after. Must register by August 31 to be guaranteed a ride shirt. 

Proceeds from the Skull Valley Loop Challenge benefit Prescott Alternative Transportation. Thanks for riding and supporting our work toward a bicycle and pedestrian friendly central Yavapai community!

Check-in and last-minute registration at 117 W. Goodwin St.:
Saturday, Sept. 19 from 5-7pm, also Sept. 20 at 6am

Watch this video to get an idea of the spirit of this fun ride.

As always, we will need the cheerful energy of many volunteers to plan and execute the ride: to register riders, to staff the rest stations and key intersections, to provide support and gear (SAG), and various other small tasks that make this event so special. Some planning is already in motion. Please contact us at prescottsaferoutes{at}gmail.com if you would like to join our fun team of Loop Challenge volunteers.

A huge thanks to our event sponsors for helping make this ride possible!:
