Looking forward to being back in Onawa for the first time in 24 years! Pretty excited to spend some time in the ol’ stomping grounds…

I look forward to the riding but am a little nervous about the hills! Hopefully they are mageable, I was also considering the first day gravel loop. Thanks for all you are doing to welcome all us riders.

Apparently, we don’t much appreciate Monona.

I appreciate the efforts that Monona County and all the other counties and towns make on our behalf each year. I hope that our presence brings some net economic benefit to all of them even if not every individual governmental body can show a benefit. It is the people and local governments of Iowa along with the state police and of course the Register team that make this possible year after year. It’s a grand thing that they invented in 1973 without understanding what it could and has become. I hope it continues on for long after I am gone!
