New this year–shorter routes at 2018 Triple Bypass

The Triple Bypass, presented by Team Evergreen, is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, and they’re doing it by introducing two new routes! This nationally-renowned ride is one of the longest-standing organized rides in Colorado, and proceeds from the ride are generously donated to nonprofits like Bicycle Colorado.

Introducing the Double and Single Bypass

You asked, Team Evergreen delivered. This year they’re offering two brand new routes featuring shorter ride distances (but don’t worry, the classic, 120-mile Triple Bypass is still available, too).  The Double and Single Bypass routes follow the Triple course and finish with all the 120-mile riders.  The Single Bypass covers 35 miles from Copper to Avon and is perfect for a ride with friends and family. The Double Bypass, meanwhile, covers 75 miles from Georgetown to Avon.

And for those that still want that heart-pounding experience, the Triple Bypass route is as epic as ever! The Classic ride features 120 miles and more than 10,000 feet of challenging elevation gain from Evergreen (Bergen Park) to Avon over Juniper Pass (11,140 ft.), Loveland Pass (11,990 ft.), Swan Mountain and Vail Pass (10,560 ft.). The roads on all the passes have limited vehicular access, so your ascent is relaxed and your descent is thrilling, safe and fun.

No matter which course you choose, everyone is a winner!

Five aid stations are strategically located along the route–all with appropriate bicycling food, hydration and plenty of encouragement. The Triple Bypass is limited to 3,500 participants, and they are almost sold out, so sign up quickly!

What you get: 

For your $185 Classic Triple entry you will receive:

  • 120 miles of gorgeous mountain roads with limited vehicular access

  • Coveted Triple Bypass Jersey

  • Five stocked aid stations, including a light lunch

  • Catered finish-line meal by Footers

  • Free beer

  • Big time bragging rights


The Triple Bypass is presented by Team Evergreen Cycling, the largest and most charitable bike club in the state of Colorado. Through the proceeds of the Triple Bypass, Team Evergreen has been able to donate more than $2.3 million to local nonprofits that support the event. They give back to the groups that support the Triple Bypass, including Bicycle Colorado, Colorado Mountain Bike Association, Special Olympics, the Boy Scouts and dozens more.

The ride began in in 1988 with just a handful of Evergreen cyclists. Today it’s considered one of the nation’s top single-day recreational cycling events, and raises funds for a number of beneficiaries. Because of our advocacy, the Triple has continued to be successful and safe for nearly 30 years. To show their support, Team Evergreen will give $20 to Bicycle Colorado for every ride registration purchased using this unique link.  Don’t miss your chance to celebrate the 30th year of the Triple Bypass.  

Your registration using the unique link above supports Bicycle Colorado!

What B-cycle taught us: Bike sharing in Denver is a must-have

  • #BicycleColorado supporter FattE-Bikes is offering a holiday promo for new bike buyers now through Thanksgiving weekend! If you’ve been thinking about getting either a fat bike or an e-bike, now’s the time to do both (and support a local Colorado business while you’re at it)!
  • Love this! Who else rode today? #bicyclecolorado #Repost @bikes4littleton
I left at 31 ° this morning. Contrary to what I have believed my entire life, you can ride a bike at that temperature. However, I miss having hair, because 31 degrees, going ~25 mph down a hill, is really cold when it goes through the helmet and hits the bald head. @bicyclecolo #bicyclecommute #lesscars
  • #BicycleColorado staffers spent part of the afternoon with @denverparksrec experiencing riding on adaptive bikes, including hand cycles and recumbent bikes. We are firm believers in #experientiallearning, and we were grateful to gain some first-hand knowledge about this kind of riding. Plus, it was really fun!
