We're Back in the Saddle

I apologize there haven't been any updates made to our website for the past few months. To use ultra-technical terminology: The website was "broken." I tried to figure it out, couldn't, and was busy with other things too. I recently enlisted (tearfully begged) the expert help of a supergenious internetgalactic heroine I knew of and she was able to restore the site to good health in short order.

The city plans to make this an annual event with the start point always being Sioux City and finishing where each subsequent year's Ragbrai will begin. Information for the iGranFondo can be found here. This is a USA Cycling permited race. If you don't want the jersey, the entry fee is $35.00. If you have questions about the Fondos please contact Aran Rush at arush@sioux-city.org.

2012 Time Trial Series- Canceled

The plan this year was to have a Saturday morning time trial series on open dates in the regional road schedule. We thought perhaps attendance would be better than it's historically been on Wednesday evenings (12 riders average). However, securing an open date in August along with scheduling an official to be there has proven to be more difficult than we anticipated. We could've gone back to the Wednesday evening format but decided it would not be worth the time and expense this year. We will revisit hosting the series again in 2013.

Spoke-n-Sport Criterium Series

Spoke-n-Sport and our pals at Central Plains Cycling are promoting a 4-race criterium series starting Wednesday, May 9th. The course will be in a different location this year (Yankton Trail Park). The other 3 races will be on Thursday evenings.
