Local supports local as Team Evergreen gives back to Bicycle Colorado

Team Evergreen is behind both the Bob Cook Memorial Mount Evans Hill Climb and the Triple Bypass—Colorado’s longest-running bike ride—but they do much more than bring bicyclists together for an epic day in the saddle. They make bike riding safer by supporting local advocacy groups like Bicycle Colorado; Team Evergreen has given $20,000 in support of better bicycling across the state in just the last six months.

Team Evergreen and the Triple Bypass are dedicated to making your rides safer, and they’ve designated us as their primary beneficiary in 2019. You benefit from their support of bike advocacy on each of your rides! 

“Team Evergreen knows that cycling advocacy takes a lot of hard (and not necessarily glamorous) work and we fully support the efforts of Bicycle Colorado,” said Jen Barbour, executive director of Team Evergreen. “They know the legislative process and can always be relied upon to represent the best interest of riders throughout the state. We are lucky to have such a great organization represent us and we encourage cyclists of all disciplines to contribute to Bicycle Colorado.”

Team Evergreen’s generosity goes a long way in making our work possible. With their support and the support of Bicycle Colorado members, we can:

  • Work toward bike-friendly policies at the State Capitol and in local communities
  • Offer Bicycle-Friendly Driver courses across the state to make our roads safer
  • Teach youth and adults how to ride
  • Bring thought leaders together to advance bike-friendly plans and get more infrastructure on the ground
  • And much more.

Their support is longstanding, too. Since 2013 Team Evergreen has donated more than $50,000 to Bicycle Colorado alone, and they’ve been able to contribute more each year to advocacy organizations due to the Triple Bypass’ continued success. All proceeds from the ride are donated to advocacy organizations and other nonprofits, and Team Evergreen has donated more than $2.6 million to a variety of nonprofit organizations to date.

Bicycle Colorado policy director Piep van Heuven
has ridden the Triple Bypass four times. 

This year’s Triple Bypass takes place July 13 and marks the 31st edition of the ride. And while the 120-mile ride has already sold out, there is still space on the Double and Single Bypass courses.

Members of Bicycle Colorado receive 10% off the price of registration, and Team Evergreen hopes Triple Bypass riders will put that savings toward an additional donation to their statewide bicycle advocacy group. Please reach out if you are a member and need the code, or join the movement here!

We envision a Colorado where riding a bicycle is always safe and convenient for everyone, where bicycling is the top choice for recreation and everyday trips, and where the benefits of bicycling are experienced and valued by all people in our state. Thank you to Team Evergreen and the Triple Bypass for helping to make our vision a reality.

We’re thrilled to see so many people out enjoying (and often rediscovering the joy of) riding a bike right now, and we’re asking ALL bicyclists to do their part to prevent the spread of #covid19 by wearing a mask or other face covering when out for a ride. Doing so keeps you, your loved ones, those around you, and all Coloradans safer while helping reduce stress on our medical system. If you still need a mask, click the link in our bio to pre-order one now and support our advocacy work! Thanks so much to everyone who has already purchased, and to @primalwear for supporting our efforts over the years. Ride on.
  • #BicycleColorado volunteers and staff members spent time today helping @denverurbangardens and @denverfoodrescue deliver “Grow a Garden” food boxes to home-bound families in Denver—via bike! Supporting our community on two wheels makes for a great way to spend a sunny day. Many thanks to our friends @ddchen47, David M., and @juggernautcargo for your help! Head to denverfoodrescue.org or dug.org to learn more about these great local organizations. #rideyourbike
  • Tonight the #BicycleColorado team celebrated Stacey, our outgoing Development Director, with a virtual happy hour. Stacey has been an absolute rockstar for BC. We’re sad to see her leave, but thrilled for her as she heads out on a new adventure (hopefully in the #BikeAdvocacy space!) in North Carolina. Please join us in wishing her well!
