Dirty Kanza 200 (DK 200), Riding Bacchetta on a gravel grinder.

Posted on Jun 7, 2011

This adventure started back over ten years ago. There was a ride in the Flint Hills of southeast Kansas called the Death Ride.

David Witte: Why I Ride a Recumbent

Posted on Jan 27, 2011

So, I thought I would take them up on [...]
