All to raise awareness of the DIRT Dad Fund!

Well, that’s not entirely true. The real reason is that it will be EPIC—a cyclist’s dream come true! I’ll be blogging along the way so you can join me on the journey too!

Here's How You Can Get Involved

I am looking to get 60 supporters to motivate and power the journey—one for each day!

Before I roll out each morning, I will pick a name out of a hat and share it and my thoughts for the day over FaceBook live!

Then we’re off to experience the adventure together. You’re generosity fueling my motivation!

   Follow this link to the DIRT Dad Fundo form, where you can pledge to donate per mile for each mile we ride together as a team on your day.

An extremely generous (I wish he would let me tell you who it was) anonymous donor has contributed a new Garmin 1030 and asked that I award it to a member of the DIRT community who has pledged to support the ride.

A random drawing will take place after the ride, and I will award the unit to one lucky person who was kind enough to pledge their support of The DIRT Dad Fundo.

On behalf of the DIRT Dad Fund committee, I’d like to thank you for your overwhelming generosity and support! The DIRT Effect is REAL, because of you!

Go DIRT!  Chris Schwenker
