What Do Dads, Dirt, and Coffee Have in Common?

DirtDad Fund

Have you been on Zwift and a group of riders with “DIRT” kits rides by?  No, it’s not a group who all have a personal hygiene issues.  This is a group that has grown world wide started by our Indoor Cycling contributor, Christopher Schwenker and a group of diverse dads who love to make time for cycling around work and family. DIRT has quickly grown to not only represent dads, but all indoor cyclists.

Our philosophy is simple – enjoy each other’s company while we venture through this journey. Both on our bikes, and off our bikes. We have an active membership who participate in all facets of cycling – social rides, training rides, organized workouts and racing.

There is at least one DIRT ride every day of the week lead by the finest leaders on the virtual cycling platform Zwift.
