Bicyclists of all ages, sizes and tire preferences should start training now for the first-ever Log Hill Lungbuster Challenge, a time trial and fund raiser for the Ouray County Historical Society.

The Ouray County Historical Society has long worked to uphold its Mission Statement: "Dedicated to preserve, protect, procure, exhibit, and interpret whatever relates to the natural, social, and cultural history of Ouray County and the adjacent San Juan Mountain Region of Colorado." The Lungbuster Challenge is yet another step in history, as locals are more and more involved in outdoor recreation. It is the hope of OCHS to make this an annual event, bringing people to Ouray County to compete year after year.

Both mountain biking (fat tires) and road cycling (skinny tires) are popular in the area so they will both be welcome.

The Ridgway Lungbuster Challenge will be in the form of a time trial, in which contestants start at intervals of about one minute apart. Then each rider races against the clock.  Best time awards will be given in both fat tire and skinny tire divisions and there will be subcategories for gender and ages.

While you are in Ouray County, be sure to check out some of the many other activities, shops and restaurants the area has to offer! From driving the Million Dollar Highway, to taking a tour of the sets of the original John Wayne film 'True Grit', hiking, jeeping, mountain biking, and long soothing soaks in the mineral hot springs scattered throughout the county, the list of fun goes on and on.

The race's $40 registration fee will benefit the Ouray County Historical Society.  For further information and to register for the event, contact the Historical Society at (970) 325-4576 or visit their website at http://www.loghilllungbusterchallenge.com
