The Dirty Project
This year we will be participating in the 5th Annual Dirty Project, held on Friday, July 12, in Hartford, VT.
Check out this video of why we raise money and ride: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aFmmWP214vg
Money raised helps to fund cancer research and patient supportive services at Dartmouth's Norris Cotton Cancer Center, one of only 49 comprehensive cancer centers designated by the National Cancer Institute. Supporting The Prouty means supporting researchers and clinicians who are working on innovative ways to prevent, diagnose, treat and hopefully, one day, cure cancer.

Thank you for your support!
Twas the day before the DP, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.
The kits were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St Nicholas soon would be there.
Cyclists were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of future routes danced in their heads.
And mamma in her buff, and I in my cap,
Had just settled our noggins for a long winter’s nap.
When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter.
Away to the window I flew like a flash,
Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash.
The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow
Gave the lustre of mid-day to objects below.
When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But a gravel bike with two discs and a 36.
With a little old pedaller, so lively and quick,
I guessed at that moment it must be St Nick.
More rapid than Lance his wheels spun as he came,
He whistled, and shouted, as he remembered them by name!
"On Joe Ranger! On Wild Apple and Faye Brooke!
On Kibling! On Taylor Valley! On Gove and Patrell!
To the top of the hill! to the top of the wall!
I’ll pedal! and pedal and I’ll give it my all!"
