Done Full Up

We have reached and crossed over the 200 rider threshold. We will honor any postcards that arrive the next few days but the address has been pulled from the interwebs. I emailed everyone who provided an email address so if you see your name on the registered list and didn't get a notification, I typed your email incorrectly. You can shoot us an email at westsidedirtybenjamin @ gmail.com to correct that for future info. Thanks for all the great postcards!! I will make some moves to post some on the FB

Almost There

A list of the just shy of 200 riders is posted so I figure that at this rate, the address will be up for only another day so get your entry sent!! Hit the link above stating 2014 Riders if you want to check it.

2014 Registration Information

OK, registration is officially going on! Everybody clap your hands like the Cha Cha Slide. First 200 postcards we receive are going in the 5th riding of the Westside Dirty Benjamin. We have Schimelpfenig park reserved in Chaska on June 14, 2014. Plans are getting laid, contacts are being massed and spirits are getting high! The categories are as follows:

Open Men
Open Women
Master 50+
Maybe a fatbike if enough folks show up for that, TBD

Last year, we received the 200 postcards in less than three weeks so you know what to do. Write down your name, category, and email. If you will be under 18 on June 14, 2014, let us know that too. We really like the postcards and frown on that cut up box of Eggo's with your info on it so get your art on and show us some humor, art or what you got. Send it to:


I'll be updating the list weekly and look forward to seeing you! Oh yeah, our take on this event is for you to ride your way be it as fast as you want, as entertaining as you want, as a goal to get 60 miles in and feast on half a dozen White Castle slider, or whatever. As long as you enjoy it, it is a success! One of the changes though is that we may not be offering the bag drop for the checkpoint. Our checkpoint organizer will be rolling her first century this day so unless we get some volunteers to ferry bags, we may 86 the option. That may change depending on the energy we plan on putting into that so consider the possibility. If the drop bag option gets pulled, we will note where one can get a tasty beverage while rolling the Carver county gravel.
