Mt Blue Sky Hill Climb


12:00 AM TO 11:59 PM


PO Box 3804, Evergreen


The Mount Blue Sky Hill Climb (Formerly the Mount Evans Hill Climb - Bob Cook Memorial) is an iconic bicycle race that takes place on the highest paved road in the United States. The course starts in the City of Idaho Springs at 7,500' and travels to the upper parking lot of Mount Blue Sky Scenic and Historic Byway at 14,130'. Since 1962 cyclists travel from all around the world to compete and race to the Summit of Mount Blue Sky!,

'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, and Women.
