If you're one of those cyclists who itches and twitches at the thought of a big epic ride, we have an event for you! Do you have what it takes to cross three Colorado Rocky Mountain passes (Squaw, 11,140'; Loveland, 11,990'; Vail, 10,560') on one 122-mile lung-busting day? The traditional Triple, a 3,500 rider, point to point bike ride begins in Evergreen and finishes in Avon with over 10,600 feet of climbing along the way. Start training for 2011 now.
New in 2011, a Reverse and a Double Triple.
On January 7th we open the first ever "Triple Event" drawing. You will have the ability to enter a drawing for one of these three events:
- The Triple Bypass (Saturday July 9th, 2011, Evergreen to Avon)
- The Reverse Triple Bypass (Sunday July 10th, 2011, Avon to Evergreen)
- The Double Triple Bypass (Saturday and Sunday, July 9th-10th, 2011, Evergreen to Avon to Evergreen)
Q1) The web announcement says we can pre-register before the Jan 7 drawing for the 2011 Triple. How do we do this?
A) The pre-registration (ability to enter the drawing) opens at 8am January 7th at this webpage: www.triplebypass.org. You will have several days to do this and it does not matter when in those days you pre-register. On January 18th we will notify everyone who entered a valid email address the results of the drawing. Shortly after that, drawing winners can go to Active.com to register for the Triple event for which they pre-registered.
Q2) Will all drawing entrants be notified whether they became eligible for an entry into the event of their choice?
A) Yes, everyone who submits a valid email address to the drawing will receive notification of their event status via email the morning of January 18th.
Q3) If I am selected, how much time do I have to register for the event of my choice? I did my first ride in 1992 and never dreamed it would get this big, result of having the best ride in the nation!
A) Thank you for your comment! If you are selected in the drawing, you will have a two day window in which to register for your event on Active.com.
