2016 Dirty Dozen Tribute Jersey

The 2016 Dirty Dozen Bike Race is being held on Saturday, November 26,2016.  Pittsburgh native Danny Chew wants to bike one million miles in his lifetime. (He is at 775,000 miles).  To challenge himself, he crammed 13 of Pittsburgh’s toughest hills into one continuous ride, creating the first Dirty Dozen in 1983. In the 33 years he has organized the event, Danny Chew set several Dirty Dozen records, one of which includes biking the current steepest hill in the U.S. (Canton Avenue) 66 times.

This past September 4th, while in Ohio, Danny suffered a traumatic biking accident, leaving him paralyzed below the chest. As part of a fundraiser during this year’s 2016 Dirty Dozen, we at Aero Tech designed a jersey that honors the biking legend during his recovery.

This full-zip jersey is sure to keep you cool, and looking bright, as you pedal up, down and around the Dirty Dozen course. The front showcases the 13 hills with vibrant peaks listing their names and elevation levels outstretched over the Burgh’s city skyline. The jersey also features a face badge of the Million Mile Man himself overlooking his beloved city. The rear pockets display previous Dirty Dozen winners, along with the quantity of rides won. The fabric is 100% WickAway polyester which is very soft yet rugged.  The bike jersey has a full zipper front, three back pockets and reflective elements. 

The proceeds will go to help offset the cost of Danny Chew’s medical and transitional expenses. He is currently progressing with daily physical therapy to make use of the limited mobility he has in his hands and arms. Please support Danny and The November 26,2016 bike race.  You can check out Danny's Dirty Dozen Bike Race website for details.

HISTORY OF THE DIRTY DOZEN - By Danny Chew

In 1983, Dan & Tom Chew and Bob Gottlieb wanted to showcase Pittsburgh's steepest and toughest hills in one ride, never getting more than 10 kilometers away from the center of the city. We searched out hills on Unites States Geological Survey (USGS) maps by counting the 20 foot contour lines/intervals. The closer the lines, the steeper the hill. Sometimes the "road" was merely steps for pedestrian traffic only. So on Saturday December 17, 1983, the first Dirty Dozen ride was held in 27 degrees F with snow flurries. Among the 5 starters were Oscar Rattenberg and Ron Reider, but only Dan, Tom, and Bob finished. Dan & Tom were deemed the two strongmen of the ride. The 5 place points system was first used in 1988 when 13 starters showed up. The 10 place points system was used in 2007 when 131 riders started, in 2008 for women, and in 2011 for men. When Tom Chew moved away from Pittsburgh in 1985, Dan Chew took over as the ride organizer. Back in the early years (the 80's) a macho attitude prevented any rider from using gears lower than a 42x24. In recent years, the ride has gotten easier due to lower gearing and several of the hills being paved (asphalted) which used to be rough cobblestone or wavy blacktop killing what little momentum the rider had. In recent years, riders have used a 39x32 gear which makes the ride much less taxing on the rider's upper body.

bicycle Jerseys made with wicking material100% WickAway Polyester
The fabric is designed with channeled and crimped yarns that are engineered to transport your body's perspiration to the outer layers of the fabric through a capilary action.


The shape of the yarns simulate the softness of a cotton fabric yet maintains the highly effective moisture transport that matters to active athletes. It is proven that you are more comfortable when your skin is dry.

This fabric is excellent at wicking the moisture away from your skin to support your effort to stay as dry as possible when it is hot and sweaty!
