Team Evergreen puts on successful Triple Bypass

AVON — From Evergreen, Georgetown and Copper Mountain to Nottingham Lake in Avon, adventure bikers from across the world stopped rode in the Double and Triple Bypass events on Saturday orchestrated every year by Team Evergreen.

The ride, which spans up to 120 miles — depending on where the rider chooses to start — begins in one of the three towns and runs over Juniper Pass (11,140 feet), Loveland Pass (11,990 feet), Swan Mountain and Vail Pass (10,560 feet), and provides a 10,000-foot overall elevation gain.
