If you haven’t heard of it, the Dirty Dozen is an annual bike race in Pittsburgh that climbs the city’s 12 steepest hills. The event is now in its 30th year and attracts hundreds of bikers. Needless to say, the race passes through the South Side Slopes.
The race occurs on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, and features Welsh Way and Eleanor Street. If you’re home, show some support and cheer them on as they struggle up our streets!
