A Question Not Answered

've had a few people ask about the distance, duration and the route for the Filthy Fifty.  I've got some ideas in my head, but a lot will depend on the "conditions on the ground" at the time the ride starts.  Just to give you an idea of what I have in my mind, I've provided a proposed route in the image below.  Any, some, all or none of this may be what we actually ride.  Hope this helps...

Filthy Fifty Update - Love somebody... in the middle of the day

The BABE Filthy Fifty October Ho Down is two weeks from today.  I really do hope you come out for a day of riding and fun times with friends. 

Here's some general information that may help you make decisions about the ride:
  • Bring a sturdy reliable bike that can be ridden both on-road and off-road
  • I estimate 80% of the ride will be on the road.
  • The off-road sections will not be "extreme" and will be something a skilled rider could do on a cyclocross bike.
  • You may have to pee in the woods at some point.
  • You must be at least 21 years of age.
  • Weather may play a factor in the distance and duration of the ride.
  • I don't always make good decisions.
  • Dress for the weather.
  • We will start the ride from Hollywood Gardens parking lot in Rochester, PA around 10am-ish.
  • We will finish ride at Hollywood Gardens parking lot in Rochester, PA around 6pm-ish.
  • Helmets and blinky lights are recomended, but not required.  We're adults and can make our own decisions.
  • Bring plenty of water and some food and snacks.  Some tools and bike supplies would be a good idea.
  • I'd prefer not to hear any whining.
  • We will be making stops at places where food and beverages can be purchased.
  • There will be food available at Hollywood Gardens after the ride.
  • For those who ride the entire event without whining will get a free beverage at Hollywood Gardens after the ride.
  • The Whiskey Daredevils are awesome and you should stick around for their show at 10pm.  An epic band to end an epic day of riding.
  • It's Halloween time, wear a costume or something.
  • Bring a change of clothes ferchristsake!
  • And don't take off your sunglasses.

Call or email me with questions.


Ride on.
