If you’re like us, you are greeting these cold months with a little less fitness, a few extra pounds and dreams of warm rides in the warmth of the summer.

STOP! Get off your a**, register for Massochistah 2023 and start riding your f***ing bike!


Register for Massochistah


We are back to April 15th and we have no idea what Mother Nature has in store. There could be ice, snow and mud, but no matter what, we ride — for the challenge, the adventure and the pain.

Like last year, we also do it to raise money for All Out Adventures adaptive cycling program and the NCC’s Youth Events — worthy causes that get all of our proceeds. All of them.

We got some good feedback and plan to up our food game, so expect enhanced rest stops and a better post-ride meal. If we don’t deliver, tell us we suck.

We have spots for about 200 folk and we expect to fill, so come get it! As always, your choice of delicious discomfort comes in three flavors:

  • The Dirty – 30 miles, 4,000 feet
  • The Hurty – 50 miles, 6,000 feet
  • The Gurdy – 70 miles, 8,000 feet

Choose wisely, but don’t be afraid to take a chance. You can always bail, and know that shame doesn’t last forever;-)

Feel free to bring a friend and let us know if you or anyone needs any financial help to ride and we will do what we can. And, please, have a family member, friend or random stranger you find sign-up to volunteer:
