    GPS Route File Download Instructions

    Team Evergreen has created a GPS file for the 2013 Triple Bypass (1 GPX file for each day)which includes way points for turns, aid stations, towns, etc., and a"Bread Crumb"(approximately 500 track points)for the route. To download the GPS route file, simply click on the file link, then File >"Save As"and save the file as a *.gpx file on your computer desktop or in a file folder of your choice. **Do not be concerned about the Html language that appears when you click on the File Link. You can transfer the way points and track log to your Garmin GPS using the Garmin MapSource or free Base Camp software. As the "Bread Crumb" has +/- 500 track points, it not recommended to "navigate" the Bread Crumb. Simply view the Bread Crumb on your GPS display to verify on course navigation. You can navigate to any of the additional individual way points in the file. *Note: Track log data can be transferred to the Garmin Edge models using the MapSource software, although track logs cannot be transferred from the Edge to MapSource. You can also use other manufacturers GPS units and software to transfer the GPS data, as the .gpx file is a common file format. If a *.tcx file is desired to create a "course" for the Garmin Edge models, users can download the free version of "Topo Fusion" (www.topofusion.com)and convert the *.gpx files to *.tcx files. In Garmin Training Center import the tcx file as a history file, then create a course file from the history.

    Users can create an auto route in the MapSource software between the Start and Georgetown, Silver Plume and Summit County High School, and East Vail to West Vail using the included way points. Bike paths along the route preclude the MapSource software from creating an auto route for the entire ride. A direct route can be created for the entire ride, but the route line connects the way points (point to point)versus having the route line follow the road as created by the auto route option. I suggest transferring the track log and way points to the GPS unit, and just select the option to show the track log on the map screen. The way points will also show on the map screen, an done can verify they're on course from the visual presentation on the GPS screen.RecommendGPS screen magnification is between 500 ft and .3 miles.

    Please note: The track log is actual data from the 2009 ride and incorporates route changes for 2013. Waypoints should be accurate,as tested on the 2010 Triple Bypass. The route is well signed and marshalled.

    Ride Support

    With your Triple Bypass registration fee, you'll be treated to the best supported cycling event you've ever experienced. More than 600 volunteers work hard to make your ride as enjoyable as possible.

    The ride is fully supported and assisted by local and state law enforcement, ambulance services, and many non-profit organizations. The ride forges through four counties and the local law enforcement assists Colorado State Patrol providing safety along the way.

    Aid Stations Triple Bypass support includes 5 full aid stations, all supplied with a great selection of food and drink (bagels, peanut butter, jelly, Clif Bars, cookies, chips, pretzels, crackers, Cytomax energy drinks, fresh fruit), plus 3 additional water stops at key locations on the course for Sunday. But that's not all. We also include a lunch stop at Loveland Basin (including sandwiches) during the ride both days, Finish line BBQ dinner, massages, and a sponsor expo area at the finish areas in Avon and Evergreen. Always carry additional water and energy snacks.

    Mechanical support from a variety of local bike shops and sponsors are available to all riders at the aid stations. Please bring extra bike supplies as this is a remote location and parts and supplies for your bike may not be readily available.

    Medical support is offered at the aid stations by Venture 911. Venture 911 are first responders and will attend to minor first aid needs. In the case of an emergency, please call 911. Please Note: Venture 911 will not have aspirin, ibuprophin, and other over the counter medications. If you think you might need some medications along the route, please make sure you bring it with you.

    SAG support vehicles will be available along the route. SAG vehicles are identified with a green car flag on the back windows. SAG will only move you forward and take you and your bike to the next aid station for medical and mechanical assistance. Double riders may also take advantage of Prestige Audi support vehicles.

    Private SAG support To ensure an optimal experience for all,Team Evergreen has banned all private SAGs on Highways 103 (Squaw Pass) to Echo Lake, and Highway 6 / Loveland Pass. Swan Mountain Road will be closed to vehicular traffic from Highway 6 to Highway 9. In addition, TE requests that private SAGs park in designated locations at all aid stations and to stay off the rest of the route to the greatest extent possible. If you want to cheer on riders, the best places to do so are in Idaho Springs and Loveland Aid Stations. Please refer to the TE website for Alternate Driving Instructions for private support vehicles.

    Specialty Catering Finish Line BBQ and Triple Bypass Expo: Specialty Catering will once again be serving a delicious post-ride BBQ. Your meal is included in your registration fee. Additional meal tickets may be purchased at the finish line for $20. Be sure to visit the many booths and vendors at the Triple Expo. Sundance Images will be taking photos during the ride and can be ordered online or at their booth. Beer is available for purchase for $4. Correct change is greatly appreciated. Energy drinks, sodas and water will also be available. Massages will be available for $40/half hour (cash, check, MasterCard or Visa accepted). Showers and towels are available at the Avon Recreation Center and the Evergreen Recreation Center for $5.

    Luggage Truck: One small bag will be transported from the start (Saturday Evergreen and Sunday Avon) to the finish area (Saturday Avon Elementary and Sunday Buchanan Park). Please make sure your bag has identification name, cell phone and rider number. Team Evergreen is not responsible for lost bags or bags that are not picked up. Please note: Once you have loaded your bag on the truck it will be transported directly to the finish area. You will not be able to pick up anything along the route.

    Testimonial Before I considered how strength training for cycling might help me (and before I owned Vitruvian Fitness), I only rode the TBP for fun as my “stretch goal” for the season. Start to finish (including stopping at every aid station), it used to take me about 12 hours to complete. The first year that I added strength and core training to my ride preparation, I cut 2 hours off my ride and felt great afterward. The next year, my approach was even more systematic and I took another 2 hours off my time. And, I did this by riding substantially fewer miles on the bike – not more.
    ~ Tom Wigginton, owner, Vitruvian Fitness, TBP – 2000, ‘09, ‘10, ‘11, ‘12, DTBP – ‘13, ‘14 (planned)

    Clif

    Clif Bar/ Clif Shot Tips!

    1.Caffeine, taken in moderation, will help improve your performance on a run. Learn more about the benefits of caffeine by listening to ClifCast, the sports nutrition podcast series from Clif Bar. http://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/caffeine/id370438300?i=92661896

    2.Stay Hydrated! Drink fluids early and often. Keep a water bottle handy and sip on it all day long - you'll feel a difference immediately. Learn more about hydration by listening to ClifCast the podcast series on sports nutrition for runners from our friends at Clif Bar. http://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/hydration/id370438300?i=86156961

    3.Carbohydrate should make up about 2/3 of each meal. Carbs are the most important source of fuel for your muscles and your brain. Choose carbohydrates that are high in fiber, such as whole wheat bread, pasta, bran cereals, oatmeal, CLIF BARS, potatoes, and popcorn. Learn more about energy by listening to ClifCast the podcast series from Clif Bar. http://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/clifcast/id370438300

    4.Approximately 1/3 of each meal should contain Protein. Protein is necessary to repair and rebuild muscle. To help counter the wear and tear of training and racing, rebuild with foods like grass fed beef, antibiotic and hormone free chicken, low mercury fish, lentils, cheese and soy. CLIF Builders protein bars and CLIF SHOT Recovery drinks are also a good way to go for the record. Learn more by listening to the Protein episode of ClifCast, the sports nutrition podcast series from Clif Bar. http://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/protein/id370438300?i=86156961

    5.Eat frequently and eat a variety of foods. Make sure you eat three meals each day and two or three healthy snacks. This will help prevent energy highs and lows throughout the day and make you more energized for training runs. Learn more by listening to the Meal Planning episode of ClifCast, the sports nutrition podcast series from Clif Bar. http://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/clifcast/id370438300

    6.The best time to begin your recovery is 15-30 minutes after a training run of over 60 minutes. The blood is still flowing rapidly and can quickly carry carbohydrates and protein to tired muscles. Learn more about recovery by listening to ClifCast, the sports nutrition podcast series from Clif Bar. http://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/clifcast/id370438300

    7.Figure out your sweat rate: You need to replace approximately 3 cups of water for every pound lost during a long run. Learn more about sweat rate by listening to ClifCast, the sports nutrition podcast series from Clif Bar. http://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/clifcast/id370438300

    8.During your marathon, or any run longer than 60 minutes, you'll need to consume 30-60 grams of carbohydrate per hour and 6-8 oz fluid every 15-20 minutes to maintain your energy and stay hydrated. Learn more on how to approach race day by listening to ClifCast, the sports nutrition podcast series from Clif Bar. http://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/clifcast/id370438300

    9.Fat works with carbohydrate to provide lasting energy to the body. It also allows for proper nutrient absorption and provides essential fatty acids the body needs daily, such as omega-3s and 6s. Also, reach for plant fats from vegetable sources such as nuts, seeds, and avocados. Finally, go easy on the saturated fats such as butter, cream, and fatty meats. http://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/clifcast/id370438300

    Frequently Asked Questions about Return Transportation:

    Q) I have registered for the 5:00pm Shuttle. What happens if I have not completed the ride and miss the shuttle? - OR I have registered for the 8:00pm shuttle, what if I finish early and want to go on the 5:00pm shuttle?
    A) If you have a confirmed reservation for a specific time, we will make sure you will have a seat on that bus. If you miss your scheduled bus time and there is space on the next bus than we will put you on it. This will be based on first come first serve and availability.

    Q) There are three stops in Evergreen. How do I know which stop is closest to my car?
    A) When you are parking your car, the lots will be named and color coded. Please pay attention to the name and color of your lot before you leave the start area. You might even want to send yourself a text message or take a picture with your phone - as sometimes the little details can get foggy after 120 miles and 3 mountain passes! At the finish line, when you line up to board the buses, they will put a color tag on your bike corresponding with your parking lot. Well have a map of the start area at the bus boarding zone to help jog your memory.

    Q) Will there be a Luggage Truck to transport a small bag with a change of clothing from the start line(s) to the finish line(s)?
    A) YES! Team Evergreen provides a complimentary luggage truck at the start line on the morning of the event to transport a small bag to Avon. Luggage drops will be available at the RTD lot, Bergen Valley Elementary, Castle Court and Bergen Meadow Elementary. We ask the bags be completely zipped up and contain no valuables. Please be sure your bag is marked with your name and cell phone number so that we can locate you if you forget to pick it up after the ride.
