Canceled: 2019 Cycle to Saturn Double Century
We've decided to cancel Cycle to Saturn for 2019 because the I-70 bike trail near the Loveland Pass Ski Resort is buried in snow and will not be open by June 15, 2019.
We will instead be riding the Cripple Creek Crippler Double Century, an equally challenging double century at lower altitudes, but not lower attitudes!
Distance: 207 miles
Climbing: 19,500 feet
Tortoises: Check-in: 2:45 AM, Start: 3:00 AM
Hares: Check-in: 3:25 AM, Start: 4:00 AM
If you expect to finish > 17 hours, start with the Tortoises!
Time limit: 20 hours (total elapsed time)
We do have a qualification standard. If you are not pre-qualified for this ride (http://coloradotriplecrown.blogspot.com/2011/12/registration.htm) you must ride with a dedicated support vehicle until you do qualify for the series.
To sign up for this ride, simply click to attend this Meet-Up. Bring your $30 registration fee to the ride start. Pretty simple, huh? Note: No $30 = No ride = No results! You have plenty of time to decide if you're going to attempt this ride. Registration closes June 14, 2019, 12 noon.
PLEASE DO NOT SIGN UP UNLESS YOU ARE GOING TO PARTICIPATE. IF YOU DECIDE TO WITHDRAW FROM THE EVENT, YOU MUST LET US KNOW PRIOR TO THE START OF THE RIDE OR YOU WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO PARTICIPATE IN OTHER COLORADO TRIPLE CROWN EVENTS FOR 2019.
Rocky Mountain Cycling Club (RMCC) membership is REQUIRED to participate in this Meet-Up. If you are not a club member, please sign up for RMCC membership!
