Early Bird - Time to Add your 2024 Events

It is time to start planning your weekends for 2024. If you are hosting an event in 2024, it is time to get it posted on the calendar. You can post your own events yourself and edit them at any time. Even if you don't know all the details, you can at least get it on the calendar now to hold the date. Post a New Event. If your event occurred last year, you can save some typing and clone your event by going to the event and clicking on the "clone" button or from the event list in your dashboard. The earlier your event is posted, the more awareness you get. The calendar can handle weekly recurring rides and events too.

BIKEIOWA is open 24/7/365. From our online store to our News Portal, to Features, Reviews and our comprehensive Event Calendar. We even have City and Trail portals for every city and trail in the state.

Your support is appreciated as we strive to make Iowa a better place to ride your bicycle. RIDE. STAY. PLAY.
