Mount Evans

August 2 @ 8:30 am - 2:00 pm

TWO OPTIONS!!  If you want to add the length (and elevation) start at the Bergen Park and Ride and head up Squaw Pass. Ride leaves at 7:30 am. 

Otherwise, the main ride is leaving from the Echo Mountain Ski Area at 8:30am. Do not park on their property, but there should be plenty of space along the road. Cuts off 15 miles and over 1800′ of elevation.  https://ridewithgps.com/routes/33583617

Mt Evans – the big daddy.  The road up to the summit is free of cars in 2021, so take advantage of an amazing ride without traffic. Bring extra food and warm gear for the descent. Gentle warning: the road sucks coming down so be sure to use caution.  It’s worth it.  Trust us.

Operation Pie!  Please bring a little extra money to stop at the Echo Lake Lodge and buy yourself a treat (bring your mask).  They have supported cyclists for years so let’s give back to them.

Weather alert!  If it doesn’t look good by the time we hit the gate at Echo Lake, we will drop down  to Idaho Springs for the Reverse Loop of Hell. https://ridewithgps.com/routes/33456655

PLEASE follow social distancing guidelines and wear a mask where appropriate.  We do not want anyone to be put at risk.

Are you a member?  You should be.  Best $35 bucks you’ll spend outside of an antibody test.  https://membership.teamevergreen.org/
