Hundreds of cyclists will gather tomorrow in Pittsburgh for one of the toughest bike races in the country.

The Dirty Dozen challenges them to ride the city’s 13 steepest hills, along a more than 50-mile route that takes about eight hours to complete. But for the first time in its 34-year history, the race’s founder, Danny Chew, will be absent.
