Dash For Cash - The Low Down

Dash For Cash - The Low Down

October 10, 2019

Saturday 12 October is DASH FOR CASH: Our uphill and downhill race format for real money. 

Entries are limited to 50 riders - get your entry confirmed here or enter in the shop:


Here's how the day's going to play out:

9am-1pm Shop is open for business as usual
1pm -5pm Shop is closed for Setup
5pm - Rider Check in Opens and last minute registration at the shop
5:45pm - Race Briefing 
6pm - Race Start 


Each rider can take any route they choose from Rook Cycles to the entrance to Deer Park. There are multiple options so don't kill yourself straight up the hill if you're not up to it. Rather test yourself on a more forgiving route. This is first and foremost a FUN race! Riders have an hour to complete the climb. Check in with your race number at the finish. Ideas below, but you can choose any route. 


6:30pm-7pm BOS Thirst Aid at the Deer Park finish line
7pm - Downhill Race Start 


Again, the route is up to you. From Deer Park, to the Rook Cycles Bikeshop. Riders are cautioned to ride safely and obey traffic laws. Check in with your race number back at the shop.
