Ever wonder why our volunteers keep coming back and are so enthusiastic?    Each has their own reason, for Mark it is Suzanne's 6AM breakfast Bloody Mary that lubricates his vocal cords for the anthem.

Preliminary Results Up

Results are up in the tab on the right.   A few people rode a little less than intended, a few people rode a little more than intended.   But everyone seemed to have a good time.

If we messed up a time or place, let me know.

Hope to get some pictures up soon...   

Another really nice day, will be tough to match the weather again, but we will try.

Thanks again to everyone that came out, it should be obvious that we really enjoy putting this event on each year.

Thanks to our neighbors who lend us lawn furniture and support the chaos that comes with starting a ride in a cul-de-sac.

Jim, Suzanne, Justine, Ed, Becky, Barb(Nicest Lemming), Mark, Marita, Ann and Cathy.

Final Routes


See the "Race Day Details" tab on the right for all the information you will need.

Below are ridewithgps.com courses for next Saturday, again, race day details on the tab on the right with GPX files, cue sheets, and other helpful info.    

The 100K course is the same as last year.

The 100 mile course was re-routed to go through the Biscay check point twice.  It got a bit more complicated around Biscay due to some construction and unintended pavement.  But the new quiet gravel roads down around Brownton make it a very nice ride. On a recon ride last Saturday we encountered 3 cars and 2 bars in the 38 mile Brownton loop.  We like that ratio.

Overall both courses are riding firmly with the exception of the 20 miles from Biscay to Winsted which has quite a few loose gravel sections that will be challenging.

The 10 miles of Luce Line trail from Winsted to Watertown that both courses finish on will be very fast.

Course change this year

We are going to change the course for the 100 M ride this year.    

We will only have a single rest stop in Biscay and the 100 mile course will pass through it twice.   The 100K course will be very similar to last year.

If you tilt your head and squint you can see the figure 8, for our 8th year.   :-)

Expect to see more detailed maps and GPX files in the weeks before the race.

2018 Dirty Lemming #8













The ride this year will be on Saturday July 28, starting at 7AM.   
We will again have a 100M and 100K course.

To register, send a post card to:
Dirty Lemming
C/O Jim Smith


We're limiting registration to the first 100 post cards.


Concerning post cards, to quote our friends at Almanzo...

We get it, postcard registration is archaic. It requires effort and a small amount of money. It isn't convenient, but neither are these events. Filling out a postcard and dropping it in the mail will be the easiest thing you do.

Include the following info:

Name
Email address
Age
Male / Female

Looking forward to seeing you soon!!!
