Bicycle race seeks more riders

There is room for more riders at the 47th annual Mt. Washington Auto Road Bicycle Hillclimb, Aug. 17 at 8:30 a.m.

This year the historic 7.6-mile bike race will award cash prizes not only to the overall winners but also to the first man and first woman to complete the Hillclimb on fixed-gear bikes, with the additional bonus of a gift card from State Bicycle Company.

The race’s organizers are also offering anyone who has registered for the Hillclimb a 50 percent discount on the registration fee for the Mt. Washington Century, the scenic and challenging 109-mile ride around northern New Hampshire’s Presidential Range three weeks before the Hillclimb.

Registration remains open until the field reaches its capacity of 635 riders. Riders can sign up at www.bikereg.com/mwarbh. The Mt. Washington Century, open to anyone, will take place on July 27.

The Mt. Washington Auto Road Bicycle Hillclimb and the Mt. Washington Century are the main annual fund-raising events for the Tin Mountain Conservation Center, which provides environmental and recreational education for children, schools and families in communities in the White Mountains and the Mt. Washington Valley. Of the $350 entry fee for the Hillclimb, $150 helps to cover the cost of staging the race. The balance is a tax-deductible charitable contribution to Tin Mountain’s programs. This year, riders have the option of registering for $150 and then raising the remaining $200 in donations. The entry fee for the Mt. Washington Century is $140 for individuals, $175 for a family. Cyclists who are already registered for the Hillclimb may register for the Century at half price.
