I registered. It is a bad weekend for my business schedule, but I hope to make it.

Looks like it closed already. Last year was a record at January 11th. This is incredible.

I think it has turned into quite a destination ride. There are people on the forum lamenting the close-out because they already have travel plans. They just don't realize how much good riding there is to be done here and that one gets attention.

Yeah, and I just found out the people I was supposed to ride with didn't make it in. They were up in the mountains doing some skiing and thought they would register today.

Oh well, we would only be together for the commutes anyway because of different riding speeds.

In 2006 (edit, oops, 2007) I bought a registration off Craiglist 3 weeks before the event. That was the last year they allowed official transfers. Did anyone buy a registration last year, and know if there are any problems with just riding under someone else's registration? Do you have to pick up an armband day-of-event, or is it in the packet?

Do the Copper Triangle instead. Not as long, but arguably as --or more-- scenic.... http://coppertriangle.com/

It's in the packet... the only thing they look at during the race is your armband for access to two of the roads and your helmet number for the pictures... they have no way of checking to make sure you're riding with your own packet or someone else's.

That sounds like a nice one as well. Does the it have a rider # limit? I checked out the website but didn't see anything about it. I wanted to do it the past two years but schedules didn't work, this year looks good though. I like that it's a loop also.

It's definitely more scenic that riding on I-70 for any length of time....

Triple bypass registration

Last year i purchased one on e-bay, I also noticed qute a few on CL prior to the ride, the only problem would be the jersey exchange which can only be done one day midweek at inconvient hours, after you have picked up the registrants packet.
I also missed out again this year, due to being out of town skiing, thinking that I would sign up on the 5th as well.
So I am in the market to purchase someones packet for cash if you can't make it, I am in Co Springs.

Thanks,

There are currently 22 "wanted" ads in the Denver CL, and 0 "for sale" ads. I bet there will be registrations for sale in June.

Last year there was talk of organizing our own ride along the Triple Bypass route on a different day... ended up fizzling out, but perhaps there would be more interest this year?
