Purgatory Resort is the finish line for the Iron Horse Bicycle Classic Quarter Horse bike race! Riders in the Quarter Horse will tour the 25 scenic miles from Durango to Purgatory Resort. After riding through the gorgeous Animas River Valley, you’ll tackle a vertical climb of more than 2,300 feet to finish among food, fun, and festivities in the Village Plaza.
Come cheer on these riders as they finish their 25-mile journey from Durango. The first riders are expected to cross the finish line around 10:00am.
