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.

David Giegerich is moving in on a 1/2 Liter O' Dirt!

While I may have been quiet these past few weeks - David Giegerich has been busy riding his bike! Since early May he has downed his #s 7, 8 and 9 100k dirty rides!
He is also prolific with the camera and has provided us with some shots of his rides through the north eastern Iowa countryside - and if you ask me - he's found some pretty cool places to ride! At one point - on an old railroad bed he came across the aftermath of a very flooded creek - and you can see the log-jam. One never knows what they'll run across when one takes the road less traveled.

In addition to Dave's ventures across the countryside - Brian, from Iowa City, nailed his 2nd full-on century - 105 miles of windswept gravel roads. Check out his story on www.booksbikesbeer.com
