The Copper Triangle is one of the most important fundraising events that benefits the Davis Phinney Foundation for Parkinson’s: www.davisphinneyfoundation.org.
The famous Copper Triangle has long been considered one of Colorado’s classic alpine road rides. Graced with breathtaking scenery, gorgeous roads and three challenging climbs, the i25Kia.com Copper Triangle exemplifies cycling in the Colorado Rockies.
A spectacular 78-mile loop cresting three Colorado mountain passes – Fremont Pass (elevation 11,318’), Tennessee Pass (elevation 10,424’), and Vail Pass (elevation 10,666’). The course passes three ski areas and is littered with historic mining outposts and Camp Hale, the training ground for the famous 10th Mountain Division. The total elevation gain for the course is 5,981-feet. A great day on two wheels!http://coppertriangle.com/
