Cold Front Blows In.... Dirt Bag is not Far Behind!

What a difference a day makes in Minnesota weather. We're 2 months/60 days/8 weeks from the Dirt Bag gravel.

Once again, there'll be a 30 and 60 mile ride as well as the 80 mile race (distances approx.). I'll be taking entries beginning Sept 1. More info to follow.

It's been a good year for gravel grinders with many new ones having popped up on the schedule and good numbers of riders participating.

I'll be doing the Heck Epic this weekend which should be a fun adventure in the north woods.

The Gravel Worlds field looks real strong this year with a good contingent of riders making the trip from St Cloud, including our own Dirt Bag founder Ben Doom, and the return of the GW 2013 champion as well as this years Dirty Kanza champ.

The Inspiration 100 is still open for registration for their penultimate year.

These are but a few that are on my radar. Check with Riding Gravel for a complete schedule of national and even worldwide grinders.

Exciting times. Good times. Challenging times. Live to ride. Ride to live.
