For those that don’t know… This is a documentary filmed in Iowa about a gravel race held in April called Trans Iowa. This show covers the 7th running of Trans Iowa. Trans Iowa is the creation of Guitar Ted out of Grinnell. Check out the Trans Iowa website, along with Guitar Ted’s blog for more info on Grass Roots cycling right here in Iowa.
For those who missed Monday night’s showing, 300 Miles of Gravel will also be shown on IPTV World on Wednesday April 24 at 7:00 AM, 1:00 PM and 6:00 PM. The 9th running of Trans Iowa is this weekend, April 27-28.
322 + miles, over 24 hours, using cue sheets, some mucky level “b” roads,( you will see some of those signs on RAGBRAI, “level b road, minimum maintainemce, enter at your own risk”, 2 checkpoints you have to be on time for to get the next cuesheet. How many finished? a third that started? I did see one name at the end when they listed all the startes that I knew from the local bike shop.
