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.

Agreed. Thanks that is. Looking forward to being there.

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!
