In memory of Sule Kangangi, Lachlan Morton is heading back to the 530-mile Colorado Trail for a self-supported individual time trial fundraiser. Learn more about his ride here…

Kenyan professional cyclist Sule Kangangi, who died while riding the Vermont Overland late last month, was a friend of Lachlan Morton through their racing and training together around the US, Africa, and Europe. Sule’s passing hit the cycling community deep, and Lachlan has turned to the Colorado Trail not only to ride in honor of him but also to raise funds for the Kangangi family during these impossibly difficult times. There is a GoFundMe set up where donations can be made—find that here.

Lachlan Morton Kokopelli Record

The last (and first) time Lachlan attempted the Colorado Trail was in 2019. Although he is an incredibly accomplished cyclist and endurance athlete, the Colorado Trail was still a little outside of his regular race routine, so his finish time of 3 days and 22 hours was impressive. He described the route as “very technical and unrelenting” and by far the hardest ride he had ever done. We had a feeling he would be back for more, and today Lachlan will head out to tackle the challenging 530-mile route once again.

Lachlan’s team, EF Pro Cycling, has put together a detailed look at why he’s riding, what we can expect, and a live tracking map to follow along live over at Good luck, Lachlan!
