TEASER VIDEO

The BIKEIOWA.com Cycling Team knows how to put on fun and exciting events and this one will be no different. Look for tons of great vantage points to cheer on your favorite racers or just chill and watch the action.

Beginner Friendly
Have not raced before? This is a perfect place to see if you like cross. Show up early to get a little practice. This is your chance to try it out!

You don't even need a special bike! All you need is: Two wheels, A brake on each wheel, a Freewheel, and handlebar ends that do not point forwards or up. Mountain bikes work great!


Kid-Friendly
There is a playground on the East end of Stone Park.


This race is SUPER SPECTATOR Friendly!!
If you have never been to a cyclocross race, you are missing out! There is action everywhere and you can watch the race from several vantage points! Kick back for an afternoon and watch cyclocross! Bring lawn chairs and park yourself, or check out the whole course.


Supplies
Facilities are limited. Bring you own water. There will be two Kybos onsite. There are convenience stores and restaurants 3-5 minutes away if you need last minute supplies.


Parking
There is plenty of parking off SE Fulton Drive. PLEASE DO NOT park at Community Center on East Side. They want that parking left open for those using the Community Center.
