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.

A Big Week!

I'm a little late in this posting - You all can probly tell when I'm busy at work and home, as there was little updating on CyclingUpdate and it has taken me a week to get these 4 hundy's logged! Anyway - here we go -

Dave Giegerich nailed a couple of metric centuries to bring his total to 4 - a third of the way there! Keep rollin Dave!

Tom Anderson and Steve Fuller were the only ones brave (??) enough to tackle the muddy roads at last Sundays get together - They basically followed Toms route around Des Moines - with some creative adaptations - as it became very evident that the gravel was going to be un-ridable without breaking thier legs or equipment or both - they took to the pavement - but not the pavement - the shoulder! They rode about 45 miles of shoulder! That takes discipline!

I'll post pics and more detailed stories when I have more than 5 min to post - but for now - you should know that these kids are well on their way!

Also - as I type this, 100 (or so) crazy souls are in thier first 5 hours of the Trans- Iowa. Follow along on CyclingUpdate.com throughout the weekend.

Peace - Dave
