Todd and Ned’s Durango Dirt Fondo this Weekend

I know it is a little late notice, but if you don’t have anything to do this weekend, and are looking for a road trip, Durango is calling.  I’m heading over to Durango for a dirt Fondo, Todd and Ned’s Durango Dirt Fondo.  This is a 30 or 50 mile ride around the city of Durango.  If you’ve never had the pleasure of riding the local Durango MTB rides, it shouldn’t be missed.

There are going to be a lot of my friends there, guys that rode the first MTB World Championships that were held in Durango, in 1990.   If you’ve never had the opportunity to talk to Ned, this is a good chance.  It should be a fun time.

I know Durango is kind of isolated, but that is part of the fun of it.  I looked at different ways of getting there and finally decided to just jump into my car and drive.  It is nearly 900 miles, but a pretty drive that I haven’t done forever.  I like driving, so I don’t really mind.  Chequamegon is next weekend, so it is going to be a fast turnaround to get back up to Cable early next week.

Anyway, there are a few slots left in both the 30 and the 50 mile rides.  You get a ticket to an 25th anniversary party of the Durango Worlds included in the registration.

    I’m going up to Durango to a buddy’s house for an MTB weekend tomorrow, but I couldn’t ever get any of those guys to do the Dirt Fondo. It really sucks; I hate to miss it.

    If anyone runs into the person that stole my Seven Ti road bike in front of the Steamworks, give em my regards.

    You will write a party review, yes? 1990 was a great time, everyone was just trying to figure out how this MTB stuff works.
