Mt Evans Hill Climb – Bob Cook Memorial

Time

12:00 AM TO 11:59 PM

Location

PO Box 3804, Evergreen

Details

Mount Evans Hill Climb - Bob Cook Memorial is an iconic bicycle race that takes place on the highest paved road in the United States from the City of Idaho Springs to the top of Mount Evans Scenic and Historic Byway. It was run for the first time in 1962 and was renamed in 1981 in honor of five-time race winner Bob Cook, who died of cancer at the age of 23.

The one and only - Colorado State Hill Climb Championships or Gran Fondo, the Climb is an extraordinary ride to the top of the world at 14,130.'

The starting point in Idaho Springs is about 20 miles west of Denver and 45 minutes east of Summit County, and if you fancy yourself a climber, this is one of the “Big Kahunas” of Hill Climbs. It is a 6,630 foot climb from an elevation of 7,500 feet all the way up to 14,130 feet. Climbing between 12,000 feet and 14,000 feet is dramatically different than climbing from 10,000 feet to 12,000 feet and consequently has been designated the Colorado State Hill Climb Championship for Senior Men, Women and Junior Men/Women 17-18.
