Lowell Observatory “Mars Hill Challenge Ride” 

Mars Hill Road …. yep, 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” again this year as a featured event.

Ride anytime between 10:00am 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 contend with all week long. The reward?  A FREE “2 for 1″ guest pass to Lowell Observatory, and 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 Catie Blazek, catie@lowell.edu, phone: 928-233-3280

Bonus! Anyone who checks in with Lowell Observatory on social media or posts about the ride, and tags Lowell Observatory, will be entered to win a TELESCOPE!
Orion SkyQuest XT6 Classic Dobsonian Telescope.
