Sometimes the dirt roads are better than anything.

Monday Motivation: Dirt Roads: Gravel roads are really fun to ride, sure. However; I often find dirt roads are more fun. Often times the dirt road is more interesting, more challenging, and in many cases, faster and smoother than pavement.

Dirt roads have a split personality though. When it is dry they are fun loving, good times, but when they are wet, the dirt roads turn to mud, they rip your bike to shreds, and crush your soul.

Maybe that’s why we like them so much!
