Dirty Dozen is a unique cycling challenge. Whether you are a newbie or a seasoned competitor, this ride can put you to the test.
Being an official finisher: You must successfully ride every hill in the event to be an official finisher. Successfully riding a hill means that you make continuous uphill progress to the top under your own power, and the only contact points with the ground are the two wheels; falling down, putting a foot down, grabbing poles or other stationary objects, jockeying in place, etc. are disqualifying, and the hill must be restarted from the bottom if any of these occur. "Finisher" ribbons will be awarded to riders certifying they successfully rode every hill. To receive one, follow instructions in your registration packet. The deadline for requesting a ribbon is 8:00 am on October 30th.
