1200 Miles & a Cup O' Dirt & a little Mississippi Mud!

Take the year long challenge of completing a dozen or half a dozen dirty centuries and join the fun in December! Everybody who completes this challenge will be rewarded with a custom hand-made stoneware mug as well as be in a drawing for other prizes. Read the FAQ for details, and welcome to the fun!

I've increased the fun to give some more folks a shot at the cup - a bit 'watered down' - We'll have the 1200 Mile Cup O' Dirt and a 600 Mile Cup O' Mississippi Mud and new in 2008 is the 1/2 Liter O' Dirt - earned by completing 12 metric centuries in the year! A special award will be presented to anyone completing either a dirty century or metric century in each month of the year.

Gettn' Faster!

Details of another Dirty Century:

#2 in the books

John Adamson and I completed another Dirty Hundy today getting us well on our way towards a Cup O' Mississippi Mud and some great Leadville training. The two of us started our journey at 6 am heading south with hopes of not getting wet. The first stop, Traer, after 3 hrs of saddle time we replenished water and headed east. This portion of the ride had us traversing minimum maintenance gravel roads for many miles until we hit the final stop, La Porte City, at 5 hrs 20 min with 79 miles in the legs. After a brief refueling John and I were off for the final leg, back into Cedar Falls. After 6 hrs 15 min of ride time John and I completed the 100 miles however, the ride was not complete John and I had a few more miles to go before reaching home. As I rolled home and put the bike way the skies opened up.

Official Time – 6 hrs 15 min
Distance 100 miles
Towns along the way – Cedar Falls, Hudson, Traer, Dysart, Mt. Auburn, La Porte City,
Evansdale, and Waterloo.
