ABOUT THIS EPISODE
Nicole Bloch is a Dirt Rag Dirt Fest groupie. She is a huge fan of the event, the people, the atmosphere, and makes sure to put it on her calendar every year.
About Erra Creations: Erra Creations was imagined in 2011 after messing around with my great grandmother’s broken costume jewelry, then a mocking dare by my best friend to make jewelry from used bicycle parts, and everything since has been created from crazy ideas by me and wonderful custom requests! Handmade with love and care, Erra is a fun look at things we use in our lives and adorn our bodies and homes with.

ABOUT DIRT FEST
Maurice and Elaine Tierney started Dirt Rag in 1989, creating a magazine that provided an inclusive forum where readers shared their stoke for the riding, culture, and lifestyle of mountain biking. After having a great time at the legendary Jim Thorpe Mountain Bike Weekend, the pair decided that Dirt Rag was in a position to translate the magazine’s in-print stoke to an in-person “gathering of the tribe.”
The first edition of Dirt Fest took place in 1991 at Camp Soles, a YMCA youth camp east of Pittsburgh. The original event was decidedly chill. There was no vendor expo bristling with the bleeding edge of bicycle technology. Demo rides amounted to swapping bikes with a newfound friend. There was a lake, a bonfire, and a bicycle polo field. Nighttime entertainment consisted of an attendee strumming a guitar at the group bonfire—a far cry from The Earthtones jamming for a circus tent full of partying mountain bikers.
