What is in store for the rest of the week?

Well, we'll be out all week as we've partnered with the Iowa Beer Bus and Mr. Pork Chop along the BIG RIDE.

Look for us along the route. We've chosen some great spots for you to enjoy you day with food, beer and entertainment. This year's route is pretty easy, so stick around for a bit. You don't win a prize for getting into the overnight town early.

We'll be there all week as will Iowa Beer Bus, Sassy Lemonade Slushes, Mott's Famous Sweet Corn and of course Mr. Pork Chop. It's going to be an epic year!

The Iowa Beer Bus will bring you the finest offerings from many of Iowa's amazing craft brewers. There are so many awesome new beers out, and of course, your go-tos and Busch Light.
New for this year, we'll feature Mo'rubs brand new (killer) Bloody Marys, Mules on tap, and a cocktail bar.

Mr. Pork Chop will be cooking succulent chops from the big pink bus.

The BIKEIOWA tent will be stocked with Jerseys, crews, cycling & trucker caps, t-shirts, coozies, wind vests and some bib shorts.
Stop by for a reflective sticker and say hello! We are BIKESEXUAL and LOVE to talk about anything cycling related.
