Riding for Jeff this weekend would’ve marked the 32nd annual Triple Bypass ride. Thousands of riders would have bravely ridden over 3 gorgeous mountain passes –Juniper, Loveland and Vail for a total of 120 miles and over 10,000’ of climbing. This epic ride started with a group of avid cyclists and friends. One July day in 1988, this group decided it would be fun and challenging to ride from Evergreen to Vail, Colorado. 32 years and thousands of more friends later, the Triple Bypass is an iconic ride for cyclists in Colorado, the US and beyond. For some, it’s a “one and done”. For others, it’s an annual tradition. For one group of friends, 2020 was going to a very special reunion. A pilgrimage in memory of a dear friend (Jeff Gockley) that introduced them to the Triple years ago. In light of COVID, this pilgrimage for Jeff will have to wait. Though the Triple is cancelled this year, you can’t cancel the community and people behind it. Read more

Though Team Evergreen would love to host you on our epic ride through the Colorado Rockies, after careful consideration of how COVID restrictions will look in September, we decided we couldn’t give you the exceptional experience that we are known for. And we need you to be safe.
So with that, we are officially canceling the 2020 Triple Bypass. We don’t want you to have to ride wearing a mask, eliminate the finish party fun or prevent you from giving congratulatory high-fives to your fellow participants. COVID-19 has taken the air out of the balloon for large events in 2020. It’s a fact we can’t ignore. Read more

It’s about all the people you meet riding, the history that is passed by and the many miles high in altitude testing our fortitude and sense of wanting to accomplish something. It doesn’t matter how fast, slow or somewhere in between— as long as you finish and have fun! Read more
By Bill Plock In 2010 in the middle of Iowa, near the old Lincoln Highway (there is a significance to the Lincoln highway related to the Triple) it really struck me how iconic the Triple Bypass is. I was ridingRead More
