More than 20 years ago, Scott Sumpter dreamt of a place on the internet where people could go to find fun cycling events, everything from party rides to road races.


THANKS for the interview Dave! We've put a ton of time, resources and passion into BIKEIOWA over the years and you asked all the right questions to get our story out there!

We know it takes a ton of time to interview folks let alone the time after the interview to stitch it all together! So THANK YOU !! Can folks buy you a keg of coffee ?!? ;)

LISTEN TO EPISODE 19 here or most other podcast platforms.


Dave's intro

He put his fingers to work and gave the world a one-page list of hundreds of events throughout his home state; Iowa.

But what he really built was a vibrant community of cyclists of all types: trail riders, criterium racers, fat bikers, mountain bikers, cyclocross racers, bar-to-bar riders and everything in between.

In this episode we meet the man behind the html coding; Scott Sumpter. We hear the history, challenges, and passion that now spans two decades. is a great model for places that are not Iowa, as a way to build a strong cycling community and connect cyclists of all kinds.
