Tri-State Mountain Bike Riders (TMBR)


Congrats to our winners and to all that participated!

A little less snow and drifting than last year.
More riding and less hike-a-bike, but definitely plenty of off-the-bike moments.
Gravel roads were very icy
Winds, dropping temps and keeping wamr were the most challenging parts of the day

Several of inches of snow fell the night before. the trails and roads were already icy before the snow.

Temps were a balmy 30 degrees at the start and by noon temps were 15 degrees, and by 3pm, temps were 10 degrees and 6 degrees by 6pm.

Wind speeds started at 30mph with sustained 50+ mph wind gusts (enough to blow a ride and bicycle clear across a gravel road and into the ditch!)  wind-chills mid afternoon were -17.. Brr!


See you next year!

The famous Triple D Winter Race (since 2007), OH what fun we've had!

Registration is now open for the Triple D Winter Race.

What is Triple D?
The Triple D Winter race is a winter endurance trail event that traverses Dubuque County Iowa in the dead of winter by bike or foot. Dubuque, Dyersville and Durango are the 3 major towns the race goes through.

Bikers can compete in either the 70-mile "Triple D" race, the 35-mile "Double D" race (new this year!), or the Poker Tour.

Post-race party with food, drinks, live music and good times at 7 Hills Brewing Company!


Course maps available on the website!

Bikers start their journey from the 7 Hills Event Center in downtown Dubuque and travel on public and private snow mobile trails to the historic railroad town of Graf where they then travel on Heritage trail to Dyersville the halfway check-point then turn back towards Durango for the finish. The bike route is altered slightly every year due to trail conditions and weather.
