Date & Route Announced for 16th Annual Long Reach Long Riders Charity Motorcycle Ride

The Long Reach Long Riders have announce their 16th annual charity motorcycle ride. The ride, appropriately dubbed “The Altimeter Tour,” begins on July 6 in Denver, Colorado and returns there on July 13. The route winds through the Rocky Mountains where the riders will encounter breathtaking mountain passes, awesome mountain valleys, and jaw-dropping mountain peaks, according to organizers.

Some of the highlights along the way will be Denver’s Red Rocks Amphitheater, Rocky Mountain National Park, and, of course, Pike’s Peak. Most of the ride will be spent between 10,000 and 14,000 ft. above sea level. At 14,114 ft., Pikes Peak is the second highest spot seen on the ride.

Jon Kirchofer, ride marshal for The Altimeter Tour says, “The mountains will provide scenery galore and the route will present a wide variety of roads to satisfy everyone’s expectations. Pike’s Peak and Rocky Mountain National Park are great spots for a motorcycle ride and we’ll take full advantage of all they have to offer.”

The Long Reach Long Riders annual charity motorcycle ride benefits Behind the Scenes and Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. What began in 2004 as a single event immediately turned into an annual ride that has raised over $650,000 for the two charities.
