Chase Some Good Times with the All-City Steeplechase!

The All-City Steeplechase is a one-weekend bike bash August 6-8, 2021 where solo explorers or teams of 2­–4 riders can complete a list of 10 party-pace challenges on their bike.

What is it? Part scavenger hunt and part photo contest, All-City has partnered up with us here at Dismount and friends at 11 other independent bike shops to create personalized challenges in a dozen different cities. Posting photo proof of your completed challenges to Instagram will get you officially entered to win goodies and swag, including one All-City Super Professional Single Speed for the grand-prize winner. Plus check out our instagram for a chance to win a Dismount prize pack!

Explore Toronto's hidden gems, spend time with your buds, compete for prizes — whatever your motivation, it’ll feel good as hell to have some fun together on your bikes!

Here's how it works:

  • Get out there on your bike
  • Have some fun!
  • And snap photos of at least five completed challenges (see below)
  • Your official entry isn’t complete until you post the pics to your Instagram grid (not Stories, FYI) using the hashtag #AllCitySteeplechase. Get wild, get creative — we’ll be picking the grand-prize winner based on how many challenges you complete and how rad your photos are.
