Dirty Century Ride

This Sunday is the Dirty Century. The route starts and ends in Elizabeth, CO. Looks like the entry fee is pretty minimal. Check their website for more details. About a week ago, I really dropped the ball on another gravel century ride. It’s called the Gold Belt Century. Looks like a really fun route up in the mountains West of Colorado Springs, with a small group. It happened June 10th, so will have to put that on the calender for next year. Check out their site for other rides and info.
