COURSE CONDITIONS

The state of Colorado is in a drought in many areas and the fire danger is high. There a number of wildfires in our state, but NONE of them currently interfere with the Triple Bypass course.

Air quality https://www.colorado.gov/airquality/colorado_summary.aspx 

Triple Bypass staff will contact all riders if there is a threat that will affect the ride, but in the meantime, please refer to the government websites for your questions.

The wildfires are located in ares outside of our ride, and we have had some rain in the past few days, so we are looking for great weather and a successful, safe ride. State agencies will contact us if there is a threat and we will let the riders know as soon as possible thereafter. 

Jefferson, Clear Creek, Summit and Eagle Counties have all issued Stage 2 Fire Bans.  The only allowable fires are gas camp stoves with propane bottles. No open flame, no charcoal grills.  If you are planning to tailgate at Loveland Valley while waiting for your participating rider(s), please keep these restrictions in mind.  Also, we would appreciate no smoking during the event, and keep your butts in the car!

For piece of mind, you may purchase event registration protection.   We do not offer refunds, so please consider this option.
