New Heights: E-Biking Across Colorado’s Highest Mountain Passes


On the Sand to Snow tour, Susanne Brüsch and her team e-biked from Monterey, CA, to Denver. The more than 3,100-mile, 10-week journey led the team to climb over 187,000 feet in altitude from the lowest point in North America to the highest mountains in the western U.S. on their e-bikes — bicycles fueled by both pedaling and electric power. They traveled through Delta, Paonia, Carbondale and other scenic Colorado towns and ascended snow-covered Hagerman and Loveland passes — both nearly 12,000-feet tall at their summits.
