Recently while out riding, or should we say surviving the Dirty Kanza we noticed a luxury lounge in the distance with a lamp sitting next to it. While we could of been mistaken we were pretty sure it wasn’t a mirage, but actually, a velvet couch sitting there in the middle of the desolate gravel roads of Kansas.
This is actually Salsa Cycles, and the way they’re marketing themselves in the gravel segment with their Chase the Chaisers segment. So far they have gone out to such events as the Land Run 100, Coast to Coast, Le Grand du Nord, DKXL and Dirty Kanza.
Their plan is simple; “One luxurious lounge. One photographer. Five different gravel family rooms. Dirt, sweat, and tears from thousands of riders across the land. Photographic portraits to capture it all.”
We looked through their gallery and picked out our favorites from the recent DK200.
