Located in southern California, Death Valley is one of the most otherworldly of America's natural wonders—an eerie panorama of salt flats and elevations. With rolling hills and steep mountains, Death Valley is also famous for Badwater, which is the lowest point in the Western Hemisphere. Whether you're a competitive cyclist, Sunday rider or novice, you’re sure to enjoy an incredible weekend—and the haunting beauty—that brings JDRF Riders back year after year to cycle up to 100 miles. Register today and join us in the desert as we ride and fundraise for type 1 diabetes research!

The Death Valley Ride gives cyclists an opportunity to ride up to 100 miles in one of the most desolate locations in the country. Starting at The Oasis at Death Valley, the route heads south through Badwater (the lowest point in the Western Hemisphere) over rolling sand dunes and salt flats, and culminates with a challenging climb up Jubilee Pass*.
All along the way, you’ll be supported by JDRF support vehicles and rest stops. From several hundred feet below sea level to several hundred feet above, the Death Valley Ride offers unique terrain, extreme conditions and an unforgettable experience.
*In an event of extreme and unpredictable weather, this course is at risk for rerouting. In the event of such occurrence, JDRF will partner with the National Parks Service for safe and alternative options.
