Friday Night Fun Ride: You'll have to join the fun to learn the route since it will not be revealed ahead of time, but will be different than last year! Enjoy an Interactive ON and OFF trail night ride; taking riders on trails and pathways that are not part of the normal bike trail system. Think of it as a bar crawl, as along the way you will make pit stops at several Cedar Rapids locations for food, drink, surprises, and a chance to build comradery with your fellow riders. While the route is a mystery, it will leave from the Comfort Inn & Suites on Werner Ave NE.
Endurance Ride: Challenge yourself on the Enduro ride that takes place on a 3.75 mile course using parts of the scenic Sac & Fox Trail at Indian Creek Nature Center, 5300 Otis Rd, Cedar Rapids. Individual and team riders will ride as many laps as possible in the 3 hour time limit. See how many laps you can endure from noon to 3 p.m.! Winners will be awarded in both individual and team categories. Riders must have 3.8" tires or wider to protect against trail damage.
Awards & Celebration: You can win some amazing awards just for participating including: Men's Champion, Men's 2nd Place, Women's Champion, Women's 2nd Place, 1st Place Team, Dead Last and Spirit Award. Awards will be given out during a celebration with your fellow cyclists at Indian Creek Nature Center following the competition.
Fat Santa Kids Ride: Kids and families are invited to the GO CR Fat Santa Ride day and time TBD. The Santa Ride is a free, half mile ride for children of all ages at Indian Creek Nature Center, 5300 Otis Rd. Participants do not need to pre-register, but should arrive early. All bicycle types are permitted and helmets are required. Children will delight in riding along with Santa and will be treated to cookies, cider and hot cocoa at the end of the ride. Families are invited to cheer for the riders of the GO CR Fat Sac & Fox Enduro Ride which begins at noon. Everyone is welcome to experience the Indian Creek Nature Center.
