2020 - WOWSERS - the year of the corona-virus pandemic, no RAGBRAI and lots more!
NINETEEN years! Can you believe BIKEIOWA has been around for 19 years as an informational website dedicated to making cycling better in Iowa?!?
As we mentioned in last year's review, if we look back at almost two decades, the internet was just a baby and your best place to find out about rides was Club newsletters and bulletin boards at your local bike shop. There were no cell phones, no Google, no Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. BIKEIOWA (fka CIBROC) was initially created to house a small list of events and grew to become one of the most comprehensive cycling websites for Iowa bike rides, news and events in the Midwest and beyond.
We thought the Iowa cycling scene and trails were pretty darn good back in the early 2000s, but little did we know that 19 years later, the Iowa cycling scene and world-class trails system would become the envy of every other state!
