A Message from the President of Team Evergreen Cycling
Thank you for all of your support and participation in the rides and for attending TripleFest. It was a first for the Triple Bypass
and your participation made it a great success under the circumstances. Cheers to everyone that made it out to Triplefest for the rides,
food and beer on Saturday. We tried our best to do a complete 180 to still host a worthwhile event and we appreciate the participation
of Robbie Ventura, Tom Danielson, Todd Gogulski, Danny Pate, Serghei Tvetcov and numerous other professional cyclists that dropped what
they were doing to help lead our rides.
We are blessed with such a strong cycling community.
The Triple Bypass was cancelled because of the fires in Summit County that began last Wednesday. The county had to pull all emergency
resources that were contracted to lend support to our event and subsequently Summit, Clear Creek and the Colorado State Patrol canceled
our permit for the ride.
We at Team Evergreen share your sadness and frustration with the cancellation of the 2017 Triple Bypass. TE is a not for profit organization
and the expenses of the planning and preparation of the event are significant. Even though the ride could not occur, we still carry the expense
for the food, infrastructure and material orders that were necessary to produce the Triple this year. The Board of Directors is currently
reviewing options in response to the numerous requests for transfers and refunds. Please be patient while we find the best solution that
will accommodate the shared losses and still ensure the production of the event in 2018.
The Triple Bypass Bicycle Ride is recognized as one of the premier cycling events in the nation. A one or two-day cycling event, celebrating its 29th year, the Triple Bypass takes you on a gorgeous tour through the heart of the Colorado Rocky Mountains.
OPTION One - On Saturday July 8th, 2017, the Triple Bypass heads West from Evergreen and concludes in Avon after climbing and descending three mountain passes. The one day bicycle ride covers 120 miles from Evergreen over Juniper Pass (11,140 ft.), Loveland Pass (11,990 ft.), and Vail Pass (10,560 ft.).
OPTION Two - The same ride, in the opposite direction heading East from Avon, occurs on Sunday, July 9th and has become a favorite single day ride for those looking to see the Triple Bypass in a new way. Regardless of which direction you choose, the Triple has over 10,000 ft. of elevation gain and takes you and your bike through some of the most beautiful landscapes in Colorado.
OPTION Three - For those truly interested in a heart-pounding experience, riders can take the challenge of the Double Triple Bypass and ride both days of the weekend. The Double Triple is the ultimate bicycle ride challenge, traveling 240 miles with 20,000' of climbing over the course of the weekend. For your accomplishment, Double riders receive their own unique jersey, extra swag, and additional gear drop-off during the ride.
No matter which course option you choose, all riders receive a coveted jersey, stocked aid station support, catered finish-line meal, free beer or beverages, and the satisfaction that you have completed something incredible. Registration for this summer's event opens in January 2017.
