About the Club
The Team Evergreen Bicycle Club was founded in 1988 and is based in Evergreen, Colorado at the crest of the foothills entering the majestic Rocky Mountains west of Denver.
Team Evergreen is a non-profit 503(c)(4) organization, with ~1,000 members. Team Evergreen is deeply involved bicycle and community organizations to support to promote the sport of cycling.
Besides the Triple Bypass, Team Evergreen events include:
- Weekly road and mountain bike rides (calendar).
- Social events including mixers, dinners, picnics and general meetings of the membership for presentations of bicycle-related topics.
- Monthly newsletter, Bike Beat, (10 issues) distributed to members. Two special issues per year are widely distributed to members and Triple Bypass registrants.
- Special trips for both road and mountain bikes.
We promote cycling and though our love of cycling support our local community with rides, our monthly newsletter, this Website, and special events both in Evergreen and afar. The Triple Bypass is our flagship event.
The club has many areas of activity.
Social. There is an active social component to the club which offers members opportunities to get together and get to know each other better. Annual events such as the Spring Picnic, Summer Member Party, Oktoberfest Party and ad-hoc events organized by the club and members are great ways to meet new riding partners.
Road rides. The club offers about 30 weekend road rides per year. These are substantial routes that are generally within an hour drive from Denver, or 30 minutes from Evergreen. These rides have a ride leader that knows the route as well as a ride map and description on this website.
Mountain bike rides. There are over 100 mountain bike rides in our inventory. In any given summer there are about 30 of these rides scheduled on weekend days throughout the riding season. The ride will have a meeting point, trailhead, ride leader, ride description and map. As many of these rides are in remote area, we make an effort to keep the group together.
Rider development. Programs to help riders improve include fitness classes, coaching opportunities, and nutrition advice provided by our partners.
Advocacy. The club is very interested in furthering bicycle safety and participates in activism to this end. The club partners with trail building organizations and participates in trail work days throughout the year.
Community. The club has been very successful for a number of years in raising funds and donating all net profits from operations to deserving local non-profits. Over $900,000 has been donated in the past nine years!
