Yeah...done it 4-5 times. It's getting pretty crowded these days. Nothing over 8%, but it is 120 miles and 10k+ vertical of climbing. If you're in decent shape I'd say 8 hours or so to finish is average. BTW--it ain't a race. It's a ride. If you want a climbing race try the Bob Cook hill climb which is about the same time of year and goes from Idaho Spgs to the top of Mt. Evans--14k+ feet elevation.LyncStar said:Curious as to whether anyone on the board has done this event. Also curious as to what would be typical time finishes for Cat 3 and 4 riders for this race. For those not "in the know," the Triple Bypass is a 120 mile ride from Evergreen, CO to Avon, CO. Very popular in these parts as it isn't very challenging from a climbing perspective. That said, it does go over three passes, but nothing much above a 7-8% climb.
