Registration for Great Iowa Fall Ride Open!

RAGBRAI gravel loop is a popular detour

  • 22 July, 2018

MOORHEAD, Ia. — Cyclists who took the gravel-loop option Sunday extended their first-day ride by almost 50 percent.

It’s the fourth year for the gravel loop. It honors Steve Hed, who loved biking on gravel. He died in November 2014 at the age of 59. His HED Cycling is known for creating tires designed for riding on gravel roads. Steve, a legend in the cycling world, had asked about adding a gravel day to RAGBRAI.

Cycling has been the center of the family. Anne Hed met her husband because he was her first sponsor for a ride. And the family still love to bike.
