This Race Supports Tin Mountain Conservation Center:

This 7.6 mile all-uphill race to the summit of the highest peak in the northeastern United States is the primary annual fundraiser for Tin Mountain Conservation Center located in Albany, NH. For the privilege of pedaling up the unrelenting grade, sometimes with winds of 40 mph or more, elite and amateur cyclists pay an entry fee of $350, from which all proceeds support Tin Mountain's great work promoting an appreciation for the natural world while instilling the bedrock principles of sound stewardship and sustainable lifestyles. Entry fees help support Summer Camps, School Programs, and Community Programs for both adults and children.

2010 Hillclimb fundRACERS raised over $12,500!

Tin Mountain Conservation is grateful to all the racers, who each and every year help sell-out the Mt. Washington Auto Road Bicycle Hillclimb! Racer entry fees do more than cover the cost of putting on this great, highly-supported Mt. Washington Auto Road Bicycle Hillclimb event.

With the help of Hillclimb racers, Tin Mountain Conservation Center naturalists were able to provide environmental programs to 5,000 students and teachers in 16 schools in New Hampshire and Maine in 2009. Last year nearly 300 children ages 4 to 16 benefited from summer programs through affordable nature camps and camp scholarships. We'd like to inspire YOU to DONATE to a racer and help Tin Mountain Conservation Center increase its environmental education outreach! The Hillclimb RACERS are already doing their part; 8 grueling miles one-way up Mt. Washington. You too can make a difference by clicking on the link/button below, enter Mt.
