Triple Bypass

120 MILES, 10,000′ OF CLIMBING




The Triple Bypass Bicycle Ride is recognized as one of the premier cycling events in the nation. Celebrating its 32nd year, the Triple Bypass takes you on a gorgeous tour through the heart of the Colorado Rocky Mountains.


The ride travels over 3 mountain passes, 120 miles from Evergreen to Avon over Juniper Pass (11,140 ft.), Loveland Pass (11,990 ft.), and Vail Pass (10,560 ft.), with over 10,000 ft. of challenging elevation gain! We have closed roads, unbelievable aid stations and wonderful volunteers to usher you to the finish.  And proceeds benefit local non-profits, including Bicycle Colorado. Your entry includes a jersey, pre-party expo, all aid food and lunch, a catered dinner with free beer and bragging rights of completing a national cycling bucket list event.  Mark your calendars – the Triple Bypass sells out quickly. Learn more.


For your Classic Triple entry you will receive:

    • The coveted Triple Bypass jersey—unique to each distance

      • New this year! If you don’t need another jersey, you may opt out and save a little dough.

    • Timing for Fondo riders

    • 4 aid stations (one about every 20 miles)

    • Light lunch at Loveland ski area

    • Closed roads and trails—or if not closed, limited to vehicular traffic

    • All support, including SAGs to the next aid, medical, and adoring fans

    • Free beer, food and high fives at the finish

    • A big ol’ medal to swing around your proud neck

Happy riders at the Triple Bypass 2018


Join us for the classic Triple Bypass – all 110 miles from Evergreen to Avon or the Double Bypass and meet us in Georgetown and ride a challenging 65 miles to the finish in Avon.

The classic Triple is a bucket-list event across the nation, and for good reason. Pure gorgeous. The ride is 110 miles 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.), with over 10,000 ft. of challenging elevation gain. The roads on all the passes have limited vehicular access, so your ascent is relaxed and descent is thrilling, safe and fun.

Gran Fondo option: We are very proud, along with our sister ride, the Bob Cook Memorial Mount Evans Hill Climb, to be part of the Gran Fondo National Series. Triple Gran Fondo riders will receive a timing chip to keep track of your progress throughout the course. There is no start to finish time as in traditional racing formats—only timed sections count toward a rider’s competition time. You can relax for the rest of the ride when you are not on a timed segment, or ride to your ability throughout. It’s you against the clock.

Timing will begin right before the pass begins and will be clearly indicated along the route. No need to race down, only uphills count. The full course is 100 miles from Evergreen to Vail.

#1 Juniper Pass Timed Segment

#2 Loveland Pass Timed Segment

#3 Vail Pass Timed Segment

  • Share and tag your bicycle images
  • DON’T DELAY: We’re placing another order for #BicycleColorado masks made by our friends at @primalwear TOMORROW (5/14) at noon! Click the link in our bio to get yours now!
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 or 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!
