The best of Iowa gravel racing

Make it a great day in the saddle

Friendly to both new and experienced riders, the Iowa Gravel Series is for anyone willing to ride their bike 100 km (62 mi) along the amazing gravel and dirt roads of Iowa. Each race is unique, but they all share a similar commitment to support each rider with everything they need to have a great day in the saddle.

Whether your goal is the podium, a personal best, or even a personal accomplishment each race provides:
  • Clearly marked routes
  • Plenty of aid station support
  • Training and race prep tips
  • A great post-race meal at a local restaurant
  • A super comfy t-shirt
  • Photos you’ll want to share with your friends
  • Gifts and promotions from local businesses
  • …and probably a few stories

We started the Glenwood Gravel in 2020 (during a pandemic, we know, good timing) and it was amazing! So, we’re at it again with 2 great routes; 50km and 100km.

Come join us on September 18th, 2021 for the ride that started it all!

We’re all over the map!

You might find a ride close to you, but it might be worth it to explore a part of Iowa where you’ve never been before. All races have camping, AirBnBs, and (maybe) a hotel nearby. Bring the family, bring your friends, come explore Iowa with us.

We 💛 our series sponsors!
