The cyclists pedaled to climb Independence Pass and to raise money for charity last weekend.

Aspen native Zach Frisch, now living in Denver, organized the 10th annual benefit ride with his Trailbreak Partners organization.

The group of 40-plus donors rode from Copper Mountain to Aspen via Independence Pass on the annual charity ride.

“This year, we have chosen to raise money for the Rocky Mountain Children’s Law Center, which has been advocating for Colorado’s abused and neglected children for more than 30 years,” Frisch said. “The mission of the Children’s Law Center is to change the lives of abused and neglected children through compassionate legal advocacy, education and public policy reform.”

Frisch said the group raised more than $7,000 for the children’s law center with this year’s ride.

“God bless America,” Frisch said.

“They are only able to serve as the voice for the kids who need help most because of the generosity of donors,” Frisch said.
