Here are the details:


Who: Barking Dog Cycling and Recycle 605
What: The Second Annual Dirty Dog Ride

Dirty Dog is a four person relay challenge in the same spirit of the Little 500 at the University of Indiana.  Instead of being a true oval on a cinder track, our course will be partially on a dirt arena and part on a grassy area. It will be more of a cyclocross hybrid track.

There will be two levels of challenges:  a one hour and a two hour challenge.  Regardless of length you choose, you may have up to four members of your relay team.  This is designed so that you can ride hard and then trade off to get fresh legs on the track for your team.  There is no set order to your relay and you can take as many turns as you like.

All bikes will be provided for the challenge.  They will identical bicycles, making it fun and equal for everybody.

Team t-shirts/jerseys are encouraged!  We want this to be a fun event, plus it makes it easier to identify teams in the challenge.

There are grandstands to watch the race, so bring your friends and family to cheer you on!  Admission will be free-will donations!  Vendors will be available for food and drink.  Tickets will be available to purchase for some amazing prizes to be won throughout the day.

Where: Clay County Fairgrounds (corner of West Cherry St. and High St.)
