It's such a great word...October. You can put anything you want in front of it and it makes sense. You put "fest" behind it and sheeeeeiiiit, instant party! It's also a great time to ride a bike, especially around these parts. The weather is usually cool enough not to sweat your ass off and warm enough not to freeze it off.  It also means the arrival of backyard fires, campouts and my favorite...Märzen beer! Gotta love a beer that just looks like October. Screw all that pumpkin shit, give me a good German Märzen any day. Did I mention I love this month?

But enough of my ramblings, let the Dumptoberfest commence!

Canyonlands, Utah


Bloomington, MN

Chicago, IL

Great Falls, MD

Tacoma, WA


Malaga, Spain

Niagara Falls


Great Bend, KS

New Brunswick

Boise, ID


Well that is all for this week folks. Why don't you share your dumpfest with us? Upload them all HERE

I hope you enjoy October as much as I do and that you get a chance to enjoy it on your bike. Have a great weekend folks and I'll see you out there.
