Ok, I am dead set on doing the Triple ByPass ride next summer. The Triple ByPass is a 120 mile bike ride from Evergreen to Avon over Squaw (11,140'), Loveland (11,990'),
Swan Mountain and Vail (10,560') Passes.
So I will need to train for distance and for climbing passes. I'm pretty sure the climbing is going to come later rather than sooner since we finally started getting snow.
After driving up Berthoud Pass the other day I really wanted to ride it. I think I'll definitely have to incorporate it into my preparation for the ride.
