IOWA’S RIDE UPDATE – 2021 RIDE (February 12, 2021)

Thank you for your patience during these crazy times.  We have been communicating with the Iowa’s Ride towns that look forward to hosting cyclists from all over the world. 

Although they are excited to welcome riders to their communities, some have expressed safety concerns about riders staying overnight in the community and what facilities would be open to host riders to camp, shower, eat, etc.  Hosts were anticipating using a combination of schools, parks, fairgrounds, churches and private property and there is some uncertainty about how much acreage might be available to host visitors this summer.

We do not plan to open registration to additional riders until we can have a better idea what restrictions or limits might be in place this summer.  

Everyone wants to ride and enjoy these great towns.  We appreciate your patience and understanding.
