COLORADO’S CLASSIC ALPINE ROAD RIDE
– AUGUST 4, 2018 –
The famous Copper Triangle has long been considered one of Colorado’s classic high alpine rides. Graced with breathtaking scenery, gorgeous roads and three challenging climbs, the i25 Kia Copper Triangle exemplifies cycling in the Colorado Rockies.
This spectacular 79-mile loop crests three Colorado mountain passes – Fremont Pass (elevation 11,318’), Tennessee Pass (elevation 10,424’) and Vail Pass (elevation 10,662’). The route incorporates three ski areas, Camp Hale and is littered with historic mining outposts. With a total elevation gain 6,500 ft., Copper Triangle is a great day on two wheels!
OVER 1 MILLION RAISED
Since 2006, a portion of all Copper Triangle registration fees and associated fundraising efforts have resulted in contributions exceeding 1 Million dollars in support of the Davis Phinney Foundation. Join us in furthering their mission of helping people living with Parkinson’s live well today.
Riders will start and finish in the center of Copper Mountain Resort at Burning Stones Plaza. Amply stocked aid stations will be positioned throughout the course. Upon returning from your ride, participants will be greeted by an “Alpine Celebration”. The post-ride party, complete with music, a first-class lunch, prize drawings and industry exhibitors, will continue throughout the afternoon.
