BIKEIOWA is super-excited to be a part of the largest bike-touring event in the world!
We are working the whole week (look for the BLACK BIKEIOWA Tents). But, 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.
We've been around for 21 years now - yep - before Google, Facebook, Instagram and all the other social media platforms, AND... We are still here as your #1 Iowa cycling resource!! We've posted thousands of times over the last 21 years. READ MORE
