Vail Pass Construction

If you have ridden over Vail Pass lately, you know that CDOT is completing a recreation path project. While there is still construction, the impact to the Courage Classic route is minor and rec path holds will not occur on July 15. There is a stretch of path that is barricaded near the highway for a short distance. The stretch of path that was barricaded near the highway in 2022 is now a new, wide path about 30 yards off the highway.

Loveland Pass Route

To replace our regular Ute Pass Route, which is unavailable due to construction, we will re-route and go to the top of Loveland Pass. This route is approx. 61 miles with a maximum elevation of 11,991 ft. You can view the route here. The Keystone Route (44 miles) and Family Ride (24 miles) are not impacted by this change.

Ute Pass Route

Due to construction throughout Silverthorne, our optional route to the summit of Ute Pass will not be possible this year.

In addition to our Keystone route (44 miles) and Family Ride (24 miles), we are currently looking into a longer route for day 2, but cannot guarantee one will be added. All riders will be notified of changes made to new or existing routes.
