On Our Radar

After a long Thanksgiving weekend, we've seen family and friends, we ate well... really well. We rode our bicycles in the snow, we cleaned up the garage and have been working on the site most of the afternoon. It was a great weekend and we are thankful for many things. Most of all, our family, friends, our health and the truly AWESOME Iowa Cycling Community.

As we look back on the year, we are are satisfied with our accomplishments, the events, trails, communities and sponsors that we have helped promote, the people we have met, the friends we have made, and the rides and races we have attended. It has been a grand 'ol year for sure. We hope yours was the same.

We wish you the best during this holiday season and keep churning those pedals.


Thanks for using BikeIowa
Ride Safe!
