Pre-Ride Details

I am trying to find where the highlights of the pre-ride are. When they did the pre-ride I didn’t have time to read them everyday, I would like to now and can’t find them. Thanks

Look for JustGoBike podcast episode 258. Director Matt Phippen talks about the Inspection Ride. Google Des Moines Register Inspection Ride, you can find the article.

I listened to it a few times and to summarize, More hilly than most past rides (1800 ft and 5% 1st day), some longer distances between towns so carry more water and energy bars, some downhills 40+ mph, riding into two stadiums (Ames/Iowa City), No Guinness World Record Day on Day 4 because too expensive, Day 5 West of Colfax 2 miles of gravel, East of Colfax 10% climb, Day 7 Nice ride along river from Muscatine to Davenport. Looking forward to it.
