Note: This event is cross-posted with Indy on Fire Meetup group.
Join us for a scenic, challenging, and fun cycling event that starts and ends just off Hwy. 37 in the quaint small town of Orleans and takes cyclists through the hilly, peaceful and picturesque backroads of southern Indiana. Cyclists have the option of signing up to ride 25, 55, or 75 miles, or a century ride (100 miles).
Meet at the Orleans High School to pick up packets or register the day of. Cyclists should pre-register online (registration: https://www.bikereg.com/dogwood-pedal-century-ride) and then sign in from 7 a.m.-9 a.m. at Orleans High School. Century riders must be on course by 8 a.m. The earlier you register online, the cheaper the registration fee. Included in registration is a post-ride meal served at the start/end location for every rider who pre-registers 2 weeks prior to the ride (and others if there is enough) and world-class S.A.G. support.

We are a challenging and fun bicycle tour which kicks off the popular Dogwood Festival. Check out the festivities at http://www.orleansdogwoodfestival.com .
Dogwood Century has proven to be the most challenging century ride in Indiana. Can you conquer all the hills in early spring and earn bragging rights? If you are not ready for the century in early spring, try the 25, 55, or 75-mile routes and see what you are made of!
This ride is not for the faint of heart as only the strong will survive! Challenging hills include the likes of “Mt. Aire” and “Dead Horse Hill,” plus many more surprises along the way, including the Guthrie Mansion in Lawrence County’s Tunnelton and the Gus Grissom Memorial in Spring Mill State Park, just to name a few. Orange County sights include the beautiful West Baden Dome and Pete Dye Golf Course area and French Lick Resort and Casino.
Please keep your RSVPs up-to-date as a courtesy to your event hosts. Carpools can be discussed in the comments.
See you at the ride!
