Some Details.

Alright it's time to focus on this event. The MTB race and PorkChop Challenge have come and gone. It's now time to get dirty!

  • The Dirt Bag Ride will be on October 30th.
  • The start time will be 9:00 am at Warner Lake Park. The ride will also end at Warner Lake.
  • The distance will be as close as possible to 75 miles. Margin of error to be expected, about +/- 3%.
  • Plan on 70% gravel and 30% pavement. Any type of bike is allowed, but something with a bit wider tire would be recommended.
  • This is an unsupported event so you are on your own. No sag wagon, no one to call, just riding with hopefully they will help you if you need it!
  • At the start you will be given que cards to direct you on your way. About 40 miles in we will have a rest stop where you will need to check in and receive the second set of que cards.
  • To navigate, using the que cards, you will need to have a computer that tracks mileage. GPS units are fine too.
  • Lights are not required but not a bad idea. Day light is becoming scarce.
  • Will happen no matter the weather, no matter.
  • Unfortunately there will be a waiver for you to sign.
  • You must be on the roster to ride. To get on the roster send me an email: bpdoom at hotmail dot com.
  • It's free! We will have a limited amount of t-shirts for sale.
  • It's more of a ride than a race but we will recognize the first to finish. Don't expect schwag, it's free.
  • Wear a helmet.
  • We will have the route run near a few spots to stop and get water, food, etc. Bring money. We will note these locations on the que cards.
  • Counties will be Stearns and Wright.
  • If you have any questions post them in the comments. We will get back to you.

That is it for now. This should be fun!
