not with the sound of music, but with the sound of cyclists and Rick Sebak brought some video cameras along. Tonight (Wednesday, January 26) and I am sure many other times because these things do get repeated – Rick Sebak’s show Its Pittsburgh takes a look at The Dirty Dozen. The Dirty Dozen is an “unofficial” bicycle race that goes something like 58 miles up and down 13 of the steepest streets in Pittsburgh, including Canton Avenue, arguably the steepest public street in the world).
Make sure you check out the The Dirty Dozen website here for a complete history of the race, winners and temperature on race day – amazing that it has only snowed during the race in 1983.
If you would like to watch this with other cyclists – there is a screening party tonight at OTB Bicycle Cafe with drink specials too, screening is at 7:30 but the party starts at 6:30. More info at BikePGH and OTB Facebook Page.
(h/t to @PatrickK for the heads up on this screening)
