Dirty Dozen 2009 - Pittsburgh, PA

The 27th Annual Dirty Dozen up Pittsburgh's 13 steepest hills will be held on Saturday, November 28th at 10am. Anticipating another large crowd this year, please show up as early as 8-9am to start registration early. Meet at the Washington Boulevard Track (Where the ACA holds weekly criterium races in the summer). I recommend a low gear of 39x27. The route is 50 miles, but will take at least 5 hours because we go neutral between the hills, and there are 3-4 stops atop hills where I offer snacks and drinks.

New this year will be t-shirts handed out at registration.

Again this year, there will be a 3 place prize list for women riders, but they need to ride up EVERY HILL to be eligible. The breakdown will be:

1st woman - $150
2nd woman - $100
3rd woman - $ 50

Register the day of the event, and there is a $15 entry fee. For a listing of the hills, history of the event, and former winners, go to:
