Dirtier Than A Kanza

Well, folks, registration for Dirty Kanza is live and already in “lottery” mode, and the internet bashing of this stalwart Gravel Race is live as well. In fact, it was through Consummate Hater Hero/Graphic Design Guru BicyclePubes‘ (or is it Pubes’s?) Instagram that I personally found out about Dirty Kanz….ahhhhhh wait a minute. It’s theContinue reading “Dirtier Than A Kanza”

What’s The Point?

Along your journey to accomplish whatever cycling goal your puny human brain has convinced you to tackle, said puny human brain has probably paused a moment and asked you/itself “Why are we doing this?” What is your why? What drives you? When will you be satisfied with your achievements and move on with your life,Continue reading “What’s The Point?”

PPR Recon Day 3

It’s pretty rad being partnered with someone who digs what you’re doing with your free time, aka overwhelming cycling habit, but EVEN RADDER to have someone in your life who will wake up at 5am and say “Hey, you want to road trip to Utah this morning?” Such is how PPR Recon Day 3 began.Continue reading “PPR Recon Day 3”

Of course 2019 in my 18″Continue reading “Obligatory New Year Post”

PPR Course Recon Day 2

I have this maybe-a-little-obvious new-found obsession with the Plateau Passage bikepacking/dirtbagging route which was cooked to perfection by the route chefs over at BikepackingRoots.org. I’ll share more about the route in later posts, as this blog has kind of turned into a bit of a fan site (laughing emoji), but today I’d like to talkContinue reading “PPR Course Recon Day 2”

Plateau Passage Route Recon

LT and I took the Tahoe out yesterday so we could do a little recon on the beginning of the Plateau Passage Route. Believe it or not, this is the least picturesque spot on this part of Segment 1. It’s also the nicest gravel to be found between here and Lake Mead Boulevard, where youContinue reading “Plateau Passage Route Recon”
