Hi! Team Defcon5 is home based in the Des Moines metro area. Several of our riders live in Central Iowa. Others are out of state riders. We’ve got a great group of people, but I’m sure that I am biased. We are a small team. Our bus allows for up to around 24 bikes on the rack. We offer week long services, daily rider services, as well as rides to…[Read more]
I borrowed a trike in 2017, due to a broken wrist that happened in May of that year. It was definitely a different experience from an upright bicycle. The hills are where the difference is most notable. You are basically pulling yourself up the hills instead of pushing down on the pedals. As others said here, there really isn’t a bottleneck kind…[Read more]
Hi Maria! If you are still looking for a team, Defcon5 has additional space for riders. Feel free to email me at TeamDefcon5@gmail.com or call me at 515-480-8298. We have riders from all several states. If you’ve found a team, that’s wonderful! We’re all just one big family anyway. :)
The first time is always exciting! Congratulations! Team Defcon5 has room for new riders. We aren’t a huge team, but we may be a good fit for you. If you are still looking for a team, feel free to reach out to us at TeamDefcon5@gmail.com.
I broke my arm/wrist on May 30th of 2017. Yikes! My surgeon said no way. I said yes way and ended up riding a recumbent with a brace. Where there is a glimmer of hope and a seed of determination, you will find a way. :)
We have space available in our fully supported team bus. We are based in Des Moines and can get you to Council Bluffs, all stops along the way, and back from Keokuk to Des Moines. We have weeklong or daily rider rates. If you are interested or have questions, please email Wendy at TeamDefcon5@gmail.com.
Team Defcon5 also has room available. We are Des Moines based and can also get you to the start, from the end back to Des Moines. If you’ve not found a group to join, please email Wendy at TeamDefcon5@gmail.com. There is a weeklong rider fee, but includes full support.
Hi Carol! We do have available space. Email us at TeamDefcon5@gmail.com with your contact information. I’ll give you a call when it is convenient for you. I’d love to talk more and answer any questions that you have. Thanks!
Team Defcon5 is a 3 generation small family team. We have a good time within the boundaries of having young teenagers. We are not teetotalers.
Our bus has a roof bike rack for about 16 bikes. The bus is considered to be an RV as it sleeps up to 10 (5 bunks are claimed). Preference for bunks is given to week-long riders. There is an on board…[Read more]
We may be interested. We’re from Des Moines. Our ridership waxes and wanes, but our team has never been more than 5 riders. My husband and I have only ridden a few days at a time. This will be our 3rd ride. Please let us know about fees and I will bring it up to him. Thanks!
