EVERGREEN, Colo. (CBS4) – Due to wildfires on the ride route, the Triple Bypass ride this year has been canceled.

The popular annual cycling event runs through Summit and Eagle Counties. The Peak 2 Fire is burning on the course between Breckenridge and Frisco, and the Gutzler Fire is burning on the course near Kremmling.

The group says in a post on their website that their “paramount concern is the safety of our riders, volunteers, and emergency personnel.”

This year’s ride meals and hydration will be donated to those fighting the fires.
