One of the best things about the Ride Across Wisconsin (RAW) is the way that it connects people across our great state through cycling. Unfortunately, in our current health environment, such a large gathering isn’t a positive. Gathering as a large group in our host c…[Read more]
Amanda, that is great news. Reading the announcement it sounds like it will be a little more austere than originally planned but the Great Iowa Forth and Back (FAB Ride) is still an option. I hope to meet you and all the other Forum Regulars there.
Has anyone ridden in this area? What do you think the completed trail will be like?
“In central Iowa, a 34-mile rail-trail nestled in the scenic Iowa River greenbelt is taking shape that will close a key gap in the Great American’s trek across the Midwestern state. Northeast of Des Moines, the River’s Edge Trail, formerly known as the Iowa Riv…[Read more]

Dear Denver Century Ride Cycling Family:
We hope this update finds you and your family staying well. As with you, the Denver Century Ride leadership team highly anticipates the phased “reopening” of Colorado. We have been carefully fol…[Read more]
With all good intentions, we were planning on kicking off the The Denver Post Pedal The Plains 2020 with a route announcement in mid-March. But then our world changed dramatically with the COVID-19 pandemic. Instead, we have made the difficult decision that it simply…[Read more]
The inaugural George S. Mickelson Trail Summer Trek 2020 in June has been cancelled due to COVID-19. The George S. Mickelson Trail is a 107 mile rail trail in the Black Hills of South Dakota. The have had a fall ride in September for 23 years and it always sells out in days.
RASDak has decided to postpone “The Best Dam Ride” until June 6-12, 2021. The pandemic is expected to peak in SD mid June, which made our decision an easy one, although we did consider RASDak branded face masks. :)
While the date will change, the rest of the tour will remain the same.
I hear you, the RASDAK/BRAN conflict the first full week of June is always a bummer. Roll Massif’s Elephant Rock Ride in Colorado seems to always be the Sunday RASDAK and BRAN start. I didn’t know Missouri and Kansas also conflicted with SD and NE this year. Usually they are a few weeks later.
Colorado’s Ride the Rockies is right after RASDAK…[Read more]
I imagine a few people do this from time to time. The last I heard of was 2018. The guy who did it is named Ryan Van Duzer and he put it up on You Tube as a series called “LoveCycles” He has other adventure travel stuff as well.
I have heard on the Pedalshift Society podcast that Ohio to Erie is a great ride. Good surfaces, lots of rest stops, decent dining options. A fun thing I think they discussed is that the state trails people have some sort of patch for those who ride the whole thing but my memory is fuzzy on that.
We had around 200 riders when I rode two years ago. About 15 of them had family that followed with RVs and helped with SAG and stuff. There was always somebody every ten miles or so along the route parked at an intersection in case someone needs help. It was very nice to be that small. I thought it was easier to get to know people. Some that…[Read more]

Overnight towns are Polluck (on the North Dakota border, Mobridge, Gettysburg, Pierre, Chamberlain, Tyndall and ends in Vermillion. You’ll be able to dip tires on both ends of the trip.…[Read more]
