Jerry Schemmel, the “Voice of the Rockies”, will attempt to break the UltraMarathon Cycling Association’s record for fastest solo non-stop cycle across Colorado. Schemmel is taking this challenge to raise funds for Paws for Purple Hearts.

The Challenge is immense! Jerry will begin at an elevation of 3,100 feet, ascend to 12,885 feet at Monarch’s Pass, over the Continental Divide and cross the finish-line at 2,100 feet elevation on September 1, 2017.

At dawn on August 31, Schemmel will begin the 468 miles challenge 30 miles west of Grand Junction, CO at the Colorado/Utah border. He’ll race across the state beginning on Highway 6 which turns into Highway 50 in Grand Junction and remain on Highway 50, concluding at the Colorado/Kansas border.
