I'm doing the Triple Bypass next month- 117 miles, 10600'
Loveland Pass, Vail Pass, and Bergen Pass
In one day. A couple of my riding buddies are doing the double-triple (Sat+Sunday) and they are insane. Not sure why you'd want to torture yourself that way.

Yeah, bring your camera/phone, there are lots of places to take great photos.

My brother is right in that area too. Heh. I love it.

You live in that neck of the woods?

if you're really worried about altitude sickness, you could also consider talking to your doctor about getting some acetazolamide

Palmer, his brother and I are doing something very similar in Sept. Riding from Charlottesville VA to south of Ashville NC, via the Blue Ridge Parkway. 6 days, 470mi and 54k of elevation. I am truly worried. I know how tired I am after a ride like 6 Gaps or Assault on Mt Mitchell. Doing comparable but slightly easier rides, 6 days in a row... well that's another story.

I've heard that is an epic ride, good luck with it.
