The 2020 Children's Hospital Colorado's Courage Classic bike ride celebrated its 31st year (as a virtual event due to the COVID pandemic). Riders missed the traditional two fun-filled days riding mountain passes in Summit County, but got creative in their riding and still succeeded in raising money for Children's Hospital Colorado.
In 2020, the event raised over $2 million for Children's Hospital Colorado Foundation.
The Durango Derailers Team has been around for 15 years and has grown from 6 riders to over 120. In 2012, the team raised over $58,000 and started a fund that specifically provides assistance with lodging and transportation for patients and families from SW Colorado as they travel to Children's Hospital for care. For the past 9 years (2012-2020), our team of riders has raised over $500,000 and we have been one of the top 10 fundraising teams for the event several years in a row!!
As a team, we come in all levels and experience of riding. We love the challenge and the inspiration of the ride.
