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.

GRAID Final Report From Grelk

GRAID was grand. Nearly every sort of gravel was experienced, lightning fast hardpack, piles of 2" fresh boulders, loamy level B's, sandy roads from Dallas Center to Ames. There were some hills, and some flats, a fair tailwind and some headwinds to finish it out. Steve had enough by Dallas Center, and chose to fight the headwinds early. Matt Maxwell, Paul, and I forged on through the sandy gravel expanse to Ames and stocked up on pizza. By then Matt had enough, so Paul and I rolled on. However the call of warm beds sounded too good to pass up by the time we rolled into Paul's neighborhood, and it was decided that we had learned what we needed to learn, the extra 12 hours of sleep riding wasn't going to improve the experience. T'was a good ride with good freinds, doesn't get much better than that.

This marks the occasion of the awarding of the first Cup of the year - as Grelk's ride to Ames counts as his 6th dirty century of 2008 - earning him the coveted Cup O' Mississippi Mud! Congratulations Dennis - I have the feeling that you will be drying out the water in said Cup - and earning the full Cup O' Dirt by the end of the year (or end of April!!!) Keep rocking and rolling! - Dave
