Phat Lemming

Look Ma, no kickstand!

Picked up this gem and rode it last weekend.   Lots of work with all the snow, but quite a lot of fun once you get used to riding at 6.5 mph.

There might be a Phat Lemming ride in the cards for March as a tuneup for the ROK.

Fjerde Dirty Lemming

That is fourth in Denmark or Norway.

We have set July 26th as the date for the Fjerde Dirty Lemming.   

We'll do the postcard thing in April, probably allow last years riders a preferred entry and cap the number of riders at 80 or 100.

Looking forward to doing it again!

Thanks and Results

Thanks to everyone that came out to ride with us.

Special thanks to the volunteers:   Mark, Marita, Barb, Jen, and Kristina!

We would not be able to pull an event like this off without the help and support of our wives, Suzanne and Becky, who not only tolerate us participating in gravel rides, they allowed us to bring one into our homes.

Hopefully you will come and ride with us again next year.    We will plan to make the weather warmer, the gravel deeper, the beer stronger, and of course, the cookies bigger.

If you notice a big discrepancy in your time, let us know, they are based on the time you hit my driveway at the finish.    

We'll post pictures as they become available.

Jim and Ed.
