We start high in the Rocky Mountains and only go up from there. Based at Copper Mountain Resort in the heart of the Rockies, the famous Copper Triangle is a cycling classic.
This road ride is graced with breathtaking scenery, gorgeous roads and three climbs over 10,000 feet. The 79-mile loop crests three Colorado mountain passes – Fremont Pass (Elev. 11,318’), Tennessee Pass (Elev. 10,424’) and Vail Pass (Elev. 10,662’) – for a total elevation gain of 6,500 feet. The route incorporates three ski areas, is littered with historic mining outposts and includes Camp Hale, the training ground for the famous 10th Mountain Division. It’s one epic day in the saddle.
Riders will travel through Lake County over Hwy 91 (Fremont Pass) and Hwy 24 (Tennessee Pass).
