The Dirty Jenkins Training Ride

As some of you may know, Casey is in town from New York.  Since the weather has been great for this time of year, we rode 14 miles of single track down at the Lake of the Ozarks, and then on Tuesday we decided to do the Dirty Jenkins Ride with the creator of the ride himself: One Mister Robert L. Jenkins III (or Bob to you and me).  Casey, Austin (my nephew), and I all met up with Bob and had an absolute blast on this ride.  Here’s a little video from the gravel ride for your viewing pleasure.  It’s at least worth watching from 1:40 – 2:50 and then again from 5:19 – 6:10.

Since Wednesday is supposed to be even better weather, we’re riding again to prepare for Dirty Kanza and Cedar Cross.  Adam and Robby actually took a day off, and Casey and I are meeting them for a 50+ mile ride with some decent climbs.  Here is the route we’re planning on doing if all goes well.  Bob couldn’t fake being sick get someone to cover his shift for him, so he’ll miss out on the most bad-ass ride ever.  It’s not like a 50 mile ride would help him avoid eating dog food, right?
