Do you like to ride bikes? Do you like to party? Do you like opening day for college football? Do you like paying for beverages with a smart phone?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, start greasing up the bike. September 1st will be the first annual Dwolla Bike Up (Tour De Dwolla). The ride will be starting at Number 7 Brewery in Ankeny at 11:00 AM and will be ending at the Flat Tire Lounge in Madrid with the option to ride many more miles to the High Trestle Bridge, Whistlin' Donkey in Woodward, and many other Labor day celebrations in Madrid.

Reasons you should attend:

  1. You will be partaking in history.
  2. Labor Day is the upcoming Monday meaning you can have double the fun.
  3. Iowa and Iowa State kick off their season so there will be healthy banter.


  1. Anything with a wheel/wheels (unicycle, bicycle, tricycle, Razor scooter, etc.)
  2. COME WITH A DWOLLA ACCOUNT! This one is important because you will receive drink specials if you pay with Dwolla. All you need to do is:
