Des Moines, IA

WHO Cycling Team



Distance - 1-20 miles (you decide)

We are pulling the plus on tonight's practice. With all the rain today and a 75% chance of rain at 5:30pm, we don't want to tear up the park.

Thanks for being flexible!


PLEASE join us for another season of Renegade Cyclocross Practices in Des Moines hosted by the Cycling Team.

All Practices will be held at Stone Park each Tuesday through the end of October. The course will be different each week.

Show up. Warm Up. Ride at your own pace. Organized laps start at 5:45 pm for those interested.

Unless the ground is completely saturated with water or there is a big storm, practices will be held rain or shine.

Watch, Facebook and Twitter for up-to-date info.

Renegade Cyclocross Practices are held AT YOUR OWN RISK!

We do ask you sign a waiver at your first practice.


This will be a training race, bike practice, or whatever else you kids want to call it. No entry fees, no prizes, no official results. Please understand the word "race" is used loosely.

What it WILL be is a great opportunity to get some intensity in, practice barriers, run-ups and other cyclocross skills and ride against guys of varying abilities. This makes it a GREAT chance for newer riders to gain some confidence and have some fun, while the experienced guys get a good workout and pass on some knowledge. Above all, it's a good reason to ride cross bikes with friends. Cool?


This IS the place to learn! Find out more about Cyclocross, the courses, and the bike set-up at Cyclocross 101. Cyclocross is the fastest-growing cycling discipline of the 21st century. Getcha some!


Stone Park is where all Renegade Cyclocross Practices will be held.  The park will be groomed and we will continue to use the hill on the South side!


After practice, we usually head over to Mullets or el Bait Shop for refreshments and food.

Thanks to

  • Des Moines Parks and Recreation for maintaining the Stone Park allowing us to use it all year.

  • Brian Duffy for the Renegade Cyclocross logo.

  • The Cycling Team, and members of the Rassy/Erik's and Sakari squads who help set up and tear down each week.


We'll set up a different course each week to include barriers, run-ups, with twists and turns to hone your cyclocross skills.
