The Wabash Trace Nature Trail in western Iowa will be the site of the second annual bicycle-music festival called “Pedaler’s Jamboree Iowa.” It is named and will be patterned after a jamboree that has become a major tourism event the past eight years on the KATY Trail in central Missouri.  

“What differentiates us from other rides is the fact that we are a music festival first and a ride second,” says Jamboree Instigator and Creator Mike Denehy. “At Pedaler’s Jamboree, you know that you are going to get some of the best regional and national acts, as well as a few local favorites, coupled with top-of-the-line stage and sound production.” Denehy, an Iowa City native, had grown up riding RAGBRAI on a yearly basis with his father before creating the Missouri rendition of the Jamboree. Other details include:

  • On Saturday, August 27th, registered riders will be encouraged to leave Mineola on the Wabash Trace Nature Trail between seven and nine in the morning. From there they will proceed down the trail for that day’s ride to Shenandoah. Bands will play for three to four hours in the towns along the trail, with food and drink vendors in all communities.

  • On Saturday night, August 27th, camping will be at Sportsmen’s Park in Shenandoah. Saturday night’s music will feature 3 bands playing on a major stage. As with every performance at the festival, top of line sound, staging, and production will be provided. Last year’s headlining acts included Euforquestra, That1Guy and Dirtfoot.  

  • The ride on Sunday, August 28th, will leave Shenandoah between seven and nine in the morning for the return to Mineola, with bands playing in towns along the way.

  • Registration is now open.  Participants can register at
