Come see us at the Expo and along the route all week!

After a year off, we are super-excited to be a part of the largest bike-touring event in the world!

Even though we don't get to ride this week, we attended the pre-ride in June so we've ridden the route and been to all the towns. Stop by if you have any questions.

2021 is also BIKEIOWA's 20th Anniversary! Can you believe we were around before Google, Facebook, Instagram and all the other social media platforms, AND... We are still here!! Before 2001, your best source of cycling information was the bulletin board at the local bike shops or club newsletters mailed to you. Since then, BIKEIOWA has become the resource for all things cycling in Iowa. We've posted thousands of times over the last 20 years. READ MORE

You'll find BIKEIOWA.com at the RAGBRAI Expo, on route with Iowa Beer Bus for four days and in the overnight towns of Iowa Falls and DeWitt. We will not be set up on Saturday.

This feature is tailored to where BIKEIOWA will be and what we'll be up to all week. If you want specific RAGBRAI details, there is no better place than RAGBRAI.com.


Come see BIKEIOWA at the RAGBRAI Expo!

The Expo is in awesome town of Le Mars and is free and open to the public, the RAGBRAI Expo will showcase official bike shops, bicycle/component manufacturers from around the country, travel and tour operators, and retailers associated with the cycling industry. Over 80 exhibitors will attend.

We will be there to talk about anything cycling related, promote Iowa cycling and to sell BIKEIOWA gear. Some quantities are limited so get there early if you want something specific.

Expo Hours: 12 noon to 9pm on Saturday, July 24th in Le Mars. Find out more about the Expo here.

We don't have our booth number yet, but the twin black BIKEIOWA Tent are hard to miss.

Did You Know? BIKEIOWA spent 3 nights camped in Le Mars enjoying the trails and parks as well as the food, ice-cream and Wise I Brewing Co. this past Fall. We love this town!

Where to find us on the route

We'll be out all week as we've partnered with the Iowa Beer Bus again. We've chosen some great spots for you to enjoy your day with food, beer and entertainment. It's going to be an epic week!

The Iowa Beer Bus brings you the finest offerings from many of Iowa's amazing craft brewers and also domestic go-tos.

One Stop Shop! At our stops we'll have food, drink, sweets, gear, entertainment and shade! So any time you see the yellow Iowa Beer Bus, we'll be there too as will BW outdoors (amazing food!), Mott's Famous Sweet Corn, Scheels (Mon-Thu) and Scratch Cupcakes (Thu only).

2021 BIKEIOWA Gear line-up

We went ALL OUT on the gear this year! Since it is our 20th Anniversary we are offering some commemorative items as well as some fun and festive designs.
Check out the 2021 Gear Line-up to see what we will have under our tent all week.

Our Favorites this year:
If you know BIKEIOWA, you know we focus on small batches with unique and fun designs. We enjoy the design process and come up with new designs each year. You can be assured there won't be 1,000 other cyclists wearing the same jersey as you. A BIG shout-out to our long-term partners - Primal Wear Inc. for the jerseys, crews and cycling caps, T-Shirt Graphix for our T-shirts for the last 20 years and Bike Rags for the Bandanas, Patches and Trucker Caps! We are VERY pleased with this year's designs!

We don't keep large inventories in stock and we bring 100% of our inventory with us, so when something sells out, it is truly sold out. We suggest that if you want anything, stop by early in the week to ensure your size and availability.
