We at Peace Tree are cyclists (nearly 40 RAGBRAI’s under our collective helmets) and enjoy getting out on the road for training, commraderie and fun. Not to mention, we don’t feel bad drinking beer when we are working it all off on the bike. This year we are planning to do lots of RAGBRAI training rides, general fun rides and whatever else sounds like a good idea. Marion County is a beautiful place to ride your bike from wide shoulders on some of our main highways, little traveled county roads and of course great trails around Lake Red Rock.
Our first “official” ride will be April 28th. We will leave from the brewery at 10am ride out to the lake for a rest stop and back to the brewery to complete about 25 miles. There are some hills but this is a pretty moderate ride. Of course, feel free to stick around and discuss cycling technique and the latest equipment over a beer or even order in lunch afterwards.
We’ll keep updating here but expect rides every other Saturday and we may also add in some Thursday nights. Can’t way to see Joe’s beard flapping in the wind!
