Lowell Observatory “Mars Hill Challenge Ride”
Mars Hill Road …. yeah, you probably know it, the paved ½-mile winding climb from Thorpe Park to the scenic overlook and then up to Lowell Observatory that beckons cyclists to pit their aerobic prowess against its steep 10-12% grade.
As a regular BTWW work site participant, Lowell Observatory is sponsoring the “Mars Hill Challenge Ride” as one of this year’s BTWW scheduled events.
On Tuesday, May 17, anytime between 9:00am and 5:00pm, we challenge local cyclists to bike up Mars Hill to the Lowell Observatory Steele Visitor Center and experience first-hand what Lowell BTWW riders must cope with all week long. The reward? A FREE “2 for 1” guest pass to Lowell Observatory to redeem at your leisure along with a refreshing bottle of water. Just show your bike helmet to the front desk greeter in the Visitor Center when you reach the top.
For directions and questions, contact Kim Westcott, firstname.lastname@example.org or 233-3240.
