136 cyclists registered for this event! We had a good day!



Distance - 28 miles OR 48.5 miles

2020 is our 9th year of Embrace the Hills! This is a fund-raiser for our local food pantry, Matthew's House. This ride is family-friendly AND also a great challenge for the experienced cyclist.

Two routes, all on paved (shared) roads will take you along (and sometimes over) the Loess Hills of Western Iowa. Ride at your own pace. This is a fully-supported ride with SAG wagon, pit stops, and a delicious meal served throughout the day (all FREE with paid registration). Lots of local cooks provide home-made goodies.

   The 28-mile loop is the same route we've done every year, awesome and scenic and beautiful!

   The longer route (48.5 miles) will include most of the 28 miles AND some additional hills. A few miles of the blacktop on this route are a little bumpy, but if you keep your eyes open you should be fine.


Short route
Long route

Registration begins at 8:00 AM, and you can begin your ride at any time.

Routes begin and end at the Mondamin Community Center in Mondamin, Iowa. Food available at the community center (FREE with paid registration) from 8:00 AM until the last cyclists leaves town.

28-mile route goes from Mondamin to Pisgah, Little Sioux, River Sioux, ...then back to Mondamin. FREE snacks at pit-stops in each town along the route.

The longer route is just as awesome! But LONGER! and HILLIER! And still loaded with free pocket-able protein snacks! And there is absolutely NO CHARGE for the extra hills! FREE!!! The longer route goes through Magnolia, then it takes a blacktop road that cuts through the Hills so you end up almost at Woodbine. Then Easton Trail takes you back to join the shorter route in Pisgah.
