As I casually train for the Dirty Dozen race this fall, I have been trying to put a minimum of 1800 feet of climbing in every ride. That’s easier said than done. Even on a shallow climb I am banging as big a gear as I can manage. The utmost pain, the utmost gain.
The DD is the annual victory lap of the road-racing season in the ‘Burgh. It is a baker’s dozen of the steepest climbs in the area connected by a 50-mile loop through the Steel City.
