Alpe d’ Denison Hillclimb Challenge (aka: The Alpe)

Alpe d’ Denison Hillclimb Challenge (aka: The Alpe)

  • July 13, 2018  5:00 pm – 11:00 pm

It’s back for the third year thanks to our awesome sponsors:

  • Hugh Price, HER Realtors
  • Always Forward Crossfit
  • VeloScience Bike Works
  • Homestead Beer Company
  • Moe’s Original Bar B Que
  • Bike Doctor

Test your climbing legs at the Alpe d’ Denison Hillclimb Challenge (aka: the Alpe d’). It’s a short, sweet, lung busting, leg burning, gut checking, timed sprint (on a bike) up a nasty hill on Denison University’s Ebaugh Drive. It’s not Alpe d’ Huez, but it’ll do! Bragging rights and other great prizes are up for grabs!

To get there, use the Washington Drive entrance off North Pearl Street, and follow the signs.

We’ve added some new features to make the pain even more worth it:

  • A team event with four-person teams: men, women, mixed. A prize in each category for the fastest combined time.
  • Instant results and standings by age category available at the finish
  • Finish line photos immediately available for all participants
  • A special prize awarded for the most climbs regardless of time

On-site registration and check-in will begin at 5:00PM, with the team event starting at 5:30. Individual riders will begin as soon as the teams finish. (Note that you can register/check-in and ride any time before the event finishes; probably around 8:00pm or so. Don’t worry if you can’t get there for the start.)

Once again this year, we’ll head downtown to Moe’s for an after-party that will feature a Homestead Beer tap-takeover, great raffle prizes, silent auction items, and a karaoke contest. And, yes, you’re welcome at the after-party even if you don’t ride. Anyone who refers a new rider will receive five free raffle tickets at the after-party, so be sure to invite your cycling friends!
