Join us for the 20th Anniversary Monarch Crest Crank on Sunday, September 16, 2018!

A great ride for an even greater cause!

Your participation (as a rider, virtual rider or donor) in this historic fundraiser benefits The Alliance, a nonprofit organization providing crisis intervention, support and emergency shelter for women and men suffering from domestic violence. All proceeds help The Alliance with their mission to empower individuals beyond domestic and sexual violence in Chaffee County

The Monarch Crest Crank is your chance to wrap up the final day of Salida Bike Fest with one of the top mountain bike rides in the nation!

The cost to ride is $75 and includes the ride, a guide, a shuttle to and from downtown Salida, and an after party in Riverside Park featuring live music, free lunch, libations, and a goodie bag. Riders will need to review and sign this form

We encourage everyone who registers to raise at least $100 in additional donations to benefit The Alliance. We make it easy for you to do this with our peer-to-peer fundraising page (more info below). Participants who raise over $500 in donations will be entered to win a free cruiser bike!

There are many ways to make an impact during the Monarch Crest Crank

  • Individual Rider - Ride one of the top mountain bike trails in the nation!

  • Form a Team - Gather a group of friends, family members or colleagues to join forces in raising funds and participate. 

  • Peer-to-Peer - Everyone who registers as a rider or virtual rider or who donates is sent an email with instructions on how to launch your own fundraising page. It's super easy to do this (most of the content is already there for you). We even make it easy to share your fundraiser via email and social media!

  • Virtual Rider - Can't make it to the event, but still want to participate? Become a virtual rider! This is a great option if you want to be part of a team, but can't physically be at the event

  • Donate - Contribute financially to The Alliance, a nonprofit 501 (c) (3). All donations are tax deductible and greatly appreciated!

Whether you can ride the Monarch Crest Crank with us or help in other ways, we appreciate your support!
