Mt. Washington Auto Road Bicycle Hillclimb
August 21th (rain date 22nd)
Tin Mountain announces that as of today, the 2021 Mt. Washington Auto Road Bicycle Hillclimb is ON!
In fact the summer of 2021 features two opportunities to pedal to the top of Mt. Washington. The PRACTICE RIDE, an unsupported, untimed ride will be held on Saturday, July 18. For racers and experience hillclimbers the traditional MWARBH is on for Saturday, August 21, 2021. Conditions for the summer of 2021 remain unknown in terms of the pandemic so to be on the safe side, there are some changes and modifications to both rides. These changes will help us bridge the gap to a time in the future when the race can return to something closer to “normal”.
The PRACTICE RIDE on July 18 is open to 150 riders who will start up the mountain between 5 and 6 am. Registration is $150 and registration opens on March 1st. This ride is untimed. Riders will still need to have a car and driver at the top for the trip down the mountain. For more information please click here.
The 48th (do-over) annual Mt. Washington Auto Road Bicycle Hillclimb (MWARBH) on August 21 is open to 250 participants. Registration opens on March 1 and the cost is $250. This timed race begins at 8:30. As in years past, riders need to have a car/ driver at the top for the trip down the mountain. At this point we are not planning to serve lunch or hold an awards ceremony.
Given the pandemic and the uncertainty of the summer, this information is subject to change. Please check the website frequently for updates and changes.
As in years past, we encourage riders to obtain either individual or business sponsors to raise funds for Tin Mountain. These events are hosted by and benefit the ongoing environmental education programs offered by Tin Mountain Conservation Center. In fact, the MWARBH is Tin Mountain’s largest fund-raising event, and its cancellation last year impacted the budget. Although the pandemic prevented us from celebrating in style, Tin Mountain turned 40 in 2020. For over 40 years, Tin Mountain has been sharing the wonders of the natural world with students, campers, families and individuals. With your continued participation and support, Tin Mountain will be well-positioned to continue its work for the future
