Distance - 37 miles

While RAGBRAI may be over the bike riding season hasn’t ended just yet.  The first annual Bike Ride of Iowa County, also known as “BRIC” is scheduled for August 20th.  The ride is a scenic 37 mile jaunt through Iowa County beginning in the village of Amana amid the brick buildings of the historic area.  The route heads south from Amana to Williamsburg’s classic town square with its brick paved streets, then past Fireside Winery near Conroy before returning to the Amana Colonies.  BRIC is more than just a bike ride as there are special foods and events planned at each stop along the route.

The Amana Colonies are celebrating Throwback Saturday that brings 80-100 Model A vehicles to the area. Along with the vintage cars there will be special food, music, and activities to entertain the visitors all in a truly unique setting.  What a great way to begin the ride.

Bikers will peddle from Amana to Williamsburg where they will experience “Stella’s Jam in Williamsburg”. This is a day filled family events and fun for the kids. The celebration also features a full day of live music, food trucks and a beer garden on Williamsburg’s beautiful town square.  You’ll be able to enjoy one of the last days of summer in a setting that is America's Heartland at its best.

The route then heads north to Fireside Winery with their harvest in full swing.  Stop for a wine sampling and some special entertainment before peddling back to the Amana Colonies.

The ride will lead you through four of the scenic seven villages before finishing at Millstream Brewery in Amana for some refreshments and more live music. 

Those biker’s completing the entire route are eligible for an Amana Colonies Overnight Gift Package that will be given away at 7pm following the ride.


South from Amana on Hwy 151 to the IWV Road (F46), then west to the Williamsburg, north on Hwy 149 to Hwy 6 then east to South Amana, north on Hwy 220 to Amana.
