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.

Onsite Food Vendors: Fuel up with multiple onsite food vendors including Get Fresh, Maggie's Farm Wood-Fired Pizza and more.   

Raffle: We are raffling a Specialized Fatboy SE Fat Bike at the event. Drawing will be held on December 9th at the event. Winner need not be present to win. Purchase tickets for $5 or 5 for $20 here or at Northtowne Fitness and Cycling.
