The New Shack Tavern
Cedar Rapids, IA


Team Stiff


Party Ride

Distance - 36 miles

The Stiff Ride starts at the New Shack Tavern in Cedar Rapids this year, and makes its first stop at Odie's bar in Ely (6.5 miles).  We then bike to Baxa's Sutliff Store & Tavern in Sutliff (13 miles).  After a few hours of socializing along the Cedar River we take the same route back to the New Shack Tavern.  There will be a beer oasis on the way back, (look for the Team Stiff bus). 


The Shueyville Loop:  For those bikers want to ride some extra miles and take a different route back to The New Shack Tavern, you can take a left turn to Shueyville, have a beer at Chappy's bar, and then head north and east back to Cedar Rapids and the Shack.


A post-ride party will be held at The Shack.  Camping space is available next to The Shack.  Plan to stay for a full day & night of biking, hacky sack and partying.


If you would like to order a Stiff Ride jersey, send an email to  See image below to see how the jersey will look.  This jersey was designed by renowned Iowa artist Merita Guthrie, and commemorates the reopening of the Sutliff Bridge.  The jerseys will be sleeveless with 18 inch hidden zipper.


See the Team Stiff web site to download the route map and directions.  Direction arrows will be placed along the route so riders know when to turn at intersections.  The web site also contains a map and directions to the New Shack Tavern in Cedar Rapids.
