We were fans of Dirt Church from the very onset. We watched from afar as they set up a unique, yet still wholly Vermont-styled endeavor in East Burke. An event space, a brewery, and an integrated connection to their community that serves not only cyclists, but everyone. At Rasputitsa we greatly enjoyed the opportunity to meet Anna and Bruce in person. The Dirt Church POI of the Rasputitsa route was a highlight: the Pride Flag prominently displayed and such unbridled enthusiasm from all of those hanging out at the coolest spot in town.
We are beyond thrilled that Dirt Church has stepped up to support The Grindstone by sponsoring LGBTQIA+ riders. Thanks to their contribution, we are able to send free entry codes to Pride Rides VT in furtherance of our goal of expanding and supporting diversity and inclusion in Vermont gravel cycling.
Check them out. They do great things. When you do, tell them The Grindstone thanks them.
