Bike Iowa City cycling ambassador Eria Sabiiti
is passionate about riding gravel and equally as passionate about telling his story, in the hopes that he motivates or encourages others to hop on. bike and join in on the gravely fun - regardless of who they are, where they came from or what they're riding! His passion, which he shares with his wive Evonne, comes to life on his YouTube channel: the Iowa Gravel Gang. He opens up about challenges encountered during a race, his equipment choices and even favorite routes. Follow their adventures on YouTube
"The trials and tribulations, I like to show the whole thing," said Sabiiti. "I'm not the fastest guy out there. I have good days at the back and bad days, so I want people to know that if you just keep persevering, you keep riding. I like to share that to encourage people to just ride your bike, when it hurts, take a break then get back on it."
