Anyone riding the triple this weekend?
« on: July 09, 2009, 11:59:14 PM »
I know there are few riders on this board so I thought I'd check and see if anyone might be riding the triple bypass on Saturday.  I'm going to give it a shot.  Drop a line if you want to try and hook up for a few miles.

good luck.  I know CPR...lol.  That is one heck of a ride.  Weather should be nice for you though.

Thanks Jon.  I thought Pat might be doing it and maybe a few others but I guess not.

Heading out in a few.

So how'd it go?
Not much riding for me so far this year.  Got whiplash a few months back and I'm still trying to recover from that.

Pat it went pretty well all things considered.  Total time in the sadle was 7hr23min but the guys I was riding with had their wives pick us up in Vail to avoid the choas of the true finish line. 

As for the number of passes I think if you add Swan mtn road into the mix it would make 4.  It doesn't look like much on the profile map but after climbing from Idaho Springs over Loveland Pass and then hittin g that your legs definately feel it.

I'd do it again but probably train a little harder.  More hill climbing.

I rode the triple this weekend.  Took the speed triple here, there and every where.


I have done the triple rid,e but never actually done the event.  Back when I was racing, I lived at the base of 103, so I did the triple, hung out with my friend in vail and then did it again to get home the next day.  Yeah, that wasn't that much fun at the time.
