Thank you to the Triple Riders, Sponsors and Volunteers!
Thank you to our Triple Bypass Riders – all 4,532 of you! You did it!! You rode over three mountain passes, 120 miles and accomplished a bucket list goal. Out of the total riders, 43% were first timers. The male ridership was 83% and women ridership was 17%. We had 900 Double riders this year.
New caterer this year. Footers Catering provided a delicious hot meal at the finish lines both days. Gluten free, vegetarians, meat lovers were all happy. Adding a hot soup at the end was well received by all.
Team Evergreen would like to show gratitude to the Sponsors and Volunteers for the 2015 Triple Bypass. A ride of this magnitude would not be possible without our wonderful Sponsors and Volunteers. Our sponsors this year include Epic Mountain Gear, Clif Bar, Primal Wear, First Bank, Lodo’s Bar & Grill, CytoMax, Muscle Milk, Prestige Imports, Town of Avon, Beaver Creek Properties, High Point Financial Group, Optimize Endurance Systems, BikeSource, St. Anthony Hospital, Colorado Native Brewing Company and Bicycle Outfitters.
The Triple Bypass has over 700 volunteers in 23 different organizations. The volunteer groups marshal the route, stand on corners turning the riders in the hot sunshine, make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, cut oranges, slice bagels, mix CytoMax, pick up riders on the side of the road, cheer on the riders as they suffer up the mountain climb, pour beers at the finish line….. the list goes on and on. The Triple Bypass is really run by the volunteer groups! They have worked more Triple Bypasses then most of the riders. They just keep coming back and have a great time making the Triple a successful ride year after year. Thank you!

You can’t forget the Colorado State Patrol and local law enforcements for keeping the ride safe. In 2011, Colorado State Patrol closed Loveland Pass to vehicles and escorted the hazmat trucks over the pass. How nice was the ride up and down Loveland pass, not competing with a trucker on the road. Thank you again law enforcement for making it safe for all the riders.
In the past 12 years, Team Evergreen has donated over $1.6 Million dollars to non-profits and charitable organizations for the proceeds of the Triple Bypass Bicycle Ride. Thank you Riders, Sponsors and Volunteers for your support of the Triple Bypass.
