Copper Triangle

Registration is opening soon for Colorado’s Classic Alpine Road Ride! We start high in the Rocky Mountains and only go up from there.

Based at Copper Mountain in the heart of the Rockies, the famous Copper Triangle is a Colorado classic. This road sportive is graced with breathtaking scenery, gorgeous roads and three climbs over 10,000 feet, each with a timed segment.

Every year thousands of riders flock to Copper Mountain. Don’t miss it!  

The Route

The  Copper Triangle course is a spectacular 79-mile loop that crests three Colorado mountain passes – Fremont Pass (elevation 11,318’), Tennessee Pass (elevation 10,424’) and Vail Pass (elevation 10,666’). The route incorporates three ski areas, is littered with historic mining outposts and includes Camp Hale, the training ground for the famous 10th Mountain Division. The total elevation gain for the course is 6500 ft. Click here to see the map and learn more.

Registration is limited to the first 3,000 riders, so register early to guarantee a spot!

Riders under the age of 18 are FREE and must be accompanied by an adult.

  • #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)!

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!
