The Alta Alpina Challenge takes place in a remote area with few public services and little infrastructure. Permits, police, and emergency services plus other fixed costs account for the largest portion of the expenses required to produce this event.
The Alta Alpia Cycling Club is a 501(c) not for profit organization. Our mission is to promote cycling in the Markleeville, Carson Valley, Carson City, and Lake Tahoe region. Income from this event will go towards other programs that support cycling here, like our junior race team, race series, and century series.
