Dehydrator Race Day

'This is by far one of my favorite rides of the summer! Wonderful volunteers, and an awesome pasta feed after the! You should definitely put this on your summer ride list, great warm up for the HHH.'- Trish from Wichita Falls, TX

Rolling through the low hills of southwest Oklahoma, the Dehydrator is a fun ride with distances ranging from 10-80 miles. Participants will cover rolling hills, plains and areas of Stephens County, including a stretch across the Waurika Lake Dam. Experience the beauty of the surrounding countryside while challenging yourself to The Dehydrator.

The Dehydrator features recreational, non-competitive rides that include five distances. Options include a 10-mile flat course (well actually, there's a couple of big hills), as well as 25-, 50-, 62-, and 80-mile courses. (The 80 mile course will have a timed gate; riders must reach it before the assigned time or be re-routed to the 62-mile course). The recreational courses are clearly marked; route maps will be provided when participants pick up their ride packet on the evening before, and the morning of the event. Stops will be provided approximately every 10 miles and there will be plenty of fluids, fruits, and delicious homemade cookies.

Ranked as one of the top rides in Oklahoma, and known for its heat, The Dehydrator stages itself at Duncan's premier sports and activity center, The Simmons Center. Participants will have run of the building, which includes showers, a pool, a sauna and a variety of athletic equipment. A free meal (the FAMOUS homemade chicken spaghetti) is served up for all entrants; extra meals can be purchased for $5. Come to Duncan's Dehydrator, get registered, bring your sunscreen, camera, and bike and join the fun!

To register, cyclists may visit (online registration closes the Wednesday night before the event, at midnight) or download a copy of the registration form at, print it off, fill it out, and mail it (mailed entries should be postmarked by Saturday, July 19th, to avoid the late fee).
