Drop In Ride
August 3 @ 5:45 pm - 8:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 5:45 pm on Thursday, repeating until November 2, 2023
The Drop In bike ride is an informal, ride at your own risk road ride that departs on Thursday evenings from Riverfront Crossing Park in Iowa City at 5:45pm. The ride is fast paced (typically 19-21 mph ave speed) with an average distance of about 35 miles. The ride emphasizes pace line drafting, working together, maintain steady speeds, and riding safely. As of September 28th, the Drop-In Ride has switched to gravel riding for the rest of the season. Lights are required and a strong base level of fitness is recommended. This is a drop ride, meaning that if you get dropped from the group you should be prepared to find your own way back home. No aero bars. If the weather is bad, it’s safe to assume no one will be riding.
