For our second RAGBRAI Roadshow Bike Ride, we'll hop on the Cedar River Trail from the Kickstand in Cedar Rapids. Join us for a ride on Saturday, September 12, or do this short river route on your own as a quick tune up. Please note the detour we take to join the trail in Cedar Rapids, the bridge is under construction so you'll take the bridge past the African American Museum of Iowa and the National Czech & Slovak Museum & Library.
As you ride the trail you'll see a lot of the tree damage that happened during the Derecho on August 10, 2020. Cedar Rapids is only just starting to finish cleanup.
Due to storm damage on the Hoover Trail, we will take a slight detour onto Spanish Road and Wright Bros Blvd, as noted on the route. While these are generally low traffic areas, please be extra cautious of vehicles while riding on the road.
Local Tip: Ely rhymes with really and wheelie. Really!
It's our personal policy to always stop for ice cream.
These are not organized rides. We recommend that all riders follow normal social distancing guidelines and wear a mask or face covering at appropriate times.
