Addicted to long-distance dirt and gravel

Part of the inspiration for my site name.

Since becoming hooked on marathon distance gravel and mountain bike races about 10 years ago I've ridden in events like the Dirty Kanza, the Mahh Daah Hey, Leadville, Almanzo, the Lutsen 99er and many more. I've also bike-packed across the Colorado Rockies and Utah desert a few times, just for good measure.

I'm not competitive in these events with the field, I'm a chronic middle-of-the-pack kind of guy, but I love being out there. is a place for me to capture and share a record of my adventures.
