20th Annual Jean Chinn Memorial Mt. Ashland Hill Climb

It’s a Road Race!
It’s a Mountain Bike Race!
Take your pick!
It’s a Roadie vs. Mt. Biker Race!

Hit the Road, Toad!

Start with your back to those hairy-legged mountain bikers, looking into the flashing lights of an official police escort. Warm-up your climbing legs with the pack heading out of town on historic route 66 before turning up old hiway 99. Six miles of climbing will get you to the feed zone where you can fill your water bottles. Crossing under the I-5 will take you to the access road where you will continue the ascent for 9 more miles to the Mt. Ashland ski lodge. Merge with the mountain bikers for the final two miles, for a head to head battle to the finish line.

The roads are excellent for this 25 mile ride as it rises 4500 feet. Ride your lightest wheels.

Winners of all categories get a really cool commemorative mug for your java.

Directions to the start . . . From interstate 5, take exit #19, turn west to the “T” intersection and turn left on hiway 99 into Ashland. As hiway 99 turns into Main Street, you approach the downtown shops and the “plaza”. The plaza (on your right) is the location for the start of the race as well as the registration.

Hit the Dirt, Squirt!

Start with your back to those too-clean roadies as you psyche yourself up for a beautiful climb through old growth forest. No warm up for the mountain bikers as they begin their climb right from the starting line, climbing through Lithia park continuing up loop road, through four corners and straight at Bull gap. Wildlife, fresh-air and lots of shade for this 16 mile climb. Merge with the roadies for the final two miles, for a head to head battle to the finish line.

Please note: In an effort to make things as fair and exciting as possible, no cyclo-cross bikes are allowed on the off-road course, unless you’re in the citizens category. All off-road competitors must use 26 inch diameter wheels and have tires that measure at least 1.5 inches. (regular mt. bike tires).

Registration: All races start promptly at 9 (nine) AM from the downtown Ashland plaza. The friendly registration staff will open it’s office at 7:30 and closes precisely at 8:45. Get there early if you’ve decided to wait until race day to register. That decision will, by the way, cost you an extra five ($5) smackers late registration fee.

Loads of fun for all!
When all is said and done, everyone’s muscles have stiffened up, there will be a celebration you won’t want to miss. This is the time when you can enjoy the snacks, drinks and baked goods as you listen for your name in the prize raffle and awards. If you’re lucky, you may still be able to buy a really cool T-shirt!
