ABOUT DRIFTLESS DIRT
Driftless Dirt is based out of La Crosse, WI which is nearly centered in the Driftless Area. The Driftless Area is a region of the Upper Midwest comprised of SW Wisconsin, NE Iowa, NW Illinois and SE Minnesota. Known for its steep jagged blufftops, massive rock outcroppings, rivers, and spring-fed streams, this area provides excellent topography for nearly all things outdoors. Spared from the glaciers of the last Ice Age, the steep peaks and valleys were formed. While mostly unknown, the Driftless Region has a rich history in Mountain Biking spanning back to the mid 80’s. Paired with seemingly endless miles of paved and gravel roads, this area is a cyclists dream.
While cycling may be a large part of this show, we will also bring you the various aspects that make this area great.
