Description

Gravel Ride

Distance - 40/80

Make some time this coming June to come on down to Villisca Iowa for the 2018 SWIG Tour. You want level B? You want hills? We got BOTH and plenty of them! This years theme is going to change up a bit from last year. I will have 2 courses created. One will be approximately 35-40 miles and the other will be 80-90 miles. You can pick your course depending on your skill level. We are also going to let you decide how you want to ride. You can ride fast or slow. Last year we rode together as a group and made several stops. This year I am letting YOU decide how you want to ride!  You can record your time for a little friendly competition with the other riders or you can ride nice and slow. It’s up to you. There will be NO check points or time limits and as usual ride what ya brung!

This years course will be leaving Villisca Iowa at 8 am. Both the short and the long course will pass through Stanton Iowa where there will be a convenience store for food and drinks if needed. There are NO LOCAL BIKE SHOPS IN MY AREA so please be sure your bike is tuned before you come down. This is self supported! You are responsible for your own transportation if you drop out. 

ALL PARTICIPANTS will be required to sign a RELEASE/WAIVER before they ride the day of the event. Helmets and safety gear ARE required. PARTICIPANTS WILL BE EXPECTED TO RIDE SAFELY, COURTEOUSLY, AND RESPECT ALL TRAFFIC LAWS AND PRIVATE PROPERTIES! There are some level B roads that are now gated shut by the landowners. Let's not ruin these roads for future enjoyment by disrespecting the land around them. If you want to carry some food or drink in a bike bag and stop along a road for a break with your pals, that is fine with me. But if you carry it in, you carry it out! I can't control the weather so be prepared for hot and humid conditions, wind, unseasonable cool weather, rain etc.

I ALSO CAN'T CONTROL DOGS!  BE PREPARED FOR DOGS TO COME OUT BARKING WITH THE POSSIBILITY OF CHASING OR BITING YOU!

YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOURSELF AND YOUR SAFETY! 

YOU MAY ENCOUNTER SMOOTH HARD PACK ROADS, SMALL SANDY ROADS, OR LARGE THICK CHUNKY GRAVEL.  GRAVEL IS LOOSE SO RIDE AT A SAFE SPEED WITHIN YOUR CONTROL!!

Villisca is situated between several larger towns in all directions. These larger towns have hotels/motels as well as lakes that host campers in case you want to come down the night before and stay the night.

Registration IS REQUIRED. You can REGISTER HERE or please check out my OFFICIAL BLOG PAGE for registration, pictures, slideshows, updates, and even last years data. I will post the .gpx files of both routes here and on the blog page as the event gets closer so keep checking in.

The event is FREE. Just register, show up, and let's ride!
