So only hours to go before we know the overnight towns, and thus the general route. If I recall correctly, we won’t know the pass thru towns and the exact route for a couple of months. That said, how long before we can get estimates on the total climb by day, and for the total ride? Will climb info be provided tonight, or will I need to rely on posts here on the Forum with estimates by those of you who know Iowa far better than I do?
You’re correct that we won’t know anything but generalities on elevation profiles until the pass-through towns are established. That info will be on this site someplace. You can figure a northern route is basically flat unless it’s northeast Iowa like around Decorah and a southern route is hilly. The mid-section is cross between.
