Triple Bypass Weekend a Time to Remember Our Why

Triple Bypass Weekend a Time to Remember Our Why

Riding for Jeff this weekend would’ve marked the 32nd annual Triple Bypass ride. Thousands of riders would have bravely ridden over 3 gorgeous mountain passes –Juniper, Loveland and Vail for a total of 120 miles and over 10,000’ of climbing. This epic ride started with a group of avid cyclists and friends.
