We are a ride which kicks off the popular Dogwood Festival. Check out the festivities! www.orleansdogwoodfestival.com
Dogwood Century has proven to be the most challenging century in Indiana!!! Can you conquer all the hills early spring and earn bragging rights? If you are not ready for the Century early spring, how about try the 25, 50, or 75 mile routes and see what you are made of!
If you want to ride with us on April 21, 2018 be ready for a bit of fun....The ride starts in beautiful downtown Orleans, Indiana at the gazebo, near the stoplight at Hwy 37, and takes cyclists through the best backroads Southern Indiana has to offer!!!
This ride is not for the faint of heart as only the strong will survive!!! Challenging hills include the likes of "Mt. Aire" and "Dead Horse Hill" plus many more surprises along the way including the Guthrie Mansion in Lawrence County's Tunnelton and the Gus Grissom Memorial in Spring Mill State Park just to name a few. Orange County sights include the beautiful West Baden Dome & Pete Dye Gulf Course area and French Lick Resort & Casino.
Included in registration is a delicious post-ride meal for every rider signed up by April 9th (and others if there is enough) and world class S.A.G. support. Participants doing the full Century have the option of having lunch midway or at the end. The meal is in the park near where registration is and near the basketball court.
This ride is being held in conjunction with the Orleans Dogwood Festival on Saturday, April 21, 2018.
Please pre-register online and then sign in from 7:00 a.m. - 9:00 a.m. at the gazebo the day of ride. Century riders please be on course by 8:00 a.m.
