Build Your Tour had a fantastic training ride up Old Squaw Pass road from Bergen Park to Juniper Pass before descending to Echo Lake.  Our video of the 8 minutes descent to Echo Lake has been sped up to double time. The temperature was perfect as the skies provided just a slight shading of cloud cover.

The video shows our descent on Sunday, May 26, 2013 from the summit of Juniper Pass to Echo Lake. From Echo Lake, one can continue descending to Idaho Springs, Colorado or climb to the summit of the “Fourteener” Mt. Evans. This is a popular ride for many cyclists living along the Front Range of the Rockies in the Denver Metro area. Our O&B ride from Bergen Park Colorado was almost 39 miles round-trip with about 4200′ of climbing.

Team Evergreen’s Triple By-Pass and the 2013 Colorado Rocky Mountain Bike Tour incorporate this section of sweet road on their routes.
