The famous Copper Triangle has long been considered one of Colorado's classic alpine road rides. Graced with breathtaking scenery, gorgeous roads and three challenging climbs, the Copper Triangle exemplifies cycling in the Colorado Rockies. Amply stocked aid/rest stations will be positioned throughout the course. Upon returning from your ride, participants will be greeted by the "Alpine Celebration".
The Copper Triangle course is a spectacular 78-mile loop cresting three Colorado mountain passes: Freemont Pass (elevation 11,318 feet), Tennessee Pass (elevation 10,424 feet), and Vail Pass (elevation 10,666 feet). The course passes three ski areas and is littered with historic mining outposts and Camp Hale, the training ground for the famous 10th Mountain Division.
In addition to the great experience cycling this incredible alpine course, each participant will receive a specially-designed commemorative event jersey, a ticket to the "Alpine Celebration" post-ride barbecue and party, energy-replacing refreshments at all five aid stations, road support throughout the course, and a chance to win dozens of valuable prizes.
