The Mt. Washington Auto Road Bicycle Hillclimb is known as the toughest hillclimbs in the world at 7.6 miles in length, has an average grade of 12% with extended sections of 18% and the last 50 yards is an amazing 22%! Sprint that to the finish! 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.
