The Tour of the California Alps--Markleeville Death Ride is one of the most popular ACE™ (Altitude-Climbing-Endurance) events.

The published cut-off times of the organizers are based on road closures and openings; not on completing five passes.

Here is the "Just-Made-It" pacing schedule. The real deadlines for those who pace and will just manage to finish the 129 miles and 16,000 feet of climbing.


The schedule also contain a nutritional schedule (fluids and calories) based on event rest stops.
