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 Nice Note From A New Chaser - and some others logging miles!

Hi Dave,
I'm Dave, from Dubuque, 55 years old and always been a biker. However my typical milage was usually 15 miles a day 10 months out of the year UNTIL, I saw the "1/2 Liter O Dirt. Now I want one.
So today I went 62 miles on Heritage Trail. I think this counts as one, right?
I appreciate what your doing.

Here is the puddle I tipped over in, glad it was near the end of ride, because I got soaked. I thought I could ride through slowly, and my front wheel dropped about a 10 inches, and flipped me over the handle bars and into the muck.
Other picture is why Heritage Trail needs support.

- Welcome to the chase Dave!

On some other notes - Norbert Koenigsfeld and Darcy Sanford knocked off a dirty 103 miles last weekend (April 5th) for Norberts 4th.

And this weekend - it was so cold and gross out that I didn't figure I'd get a note from anybody.... Duh. I should know better by now - Dennis Grelk did not just one - but 2 on his way to the 1/2 Liter O'Dirt. This puts him at 6 metric centuries - half way to his 1/2 Liter O'Dirt. Go Dennis, Go!

Dennis is proving that the sun does actually exist in this shot! MMMmmm warm! (right!)

Rumor has it that Tom Anderson is hosting a gravel hundy this Sunday - he's working on a route that heads south from West Des Moines. I'll post details as they are made available.
