Description

Party Ride

Distance - 6 miles - one way

ONE OF SEVEN

This ride is ONE of SEVEN Fat Tire Rides sponsored by  New Belgium Brewing, the makers of  FAT TIRE BEER, and Iowa Beverage.

We are switching it up this year to give some other bars, trails and businesses some New Belgium Luvin's.

Each ride will have a new Starting point, route and destination. Some rides will have entertainment lined up.

At the end of the Seven Rides we will have ridden on at least 12 different Trails through 16 towns and at least 20 bicycle-friendly establishments and probably met 100 new friends. Now that, my friends, is a good Summer of Ridin' !!

TEAM-UP

We are looking for one ore more bike teams to CO-SPONSOR this ride!

What do we need from you?  We need you and your friends to show up, have fun, drink some New Belgium goodness,  help folks get signed up to win the cruiser, be familiar with and ride the route, help other cyclists get from the starting point to the destination and back, and did we mention... HAVE FUN?!?

If your team wishes to co-sponsor this event email Biker@BIKEIOWA.com and we will list your Team here!
