Jingle Cross Cyclocross Races

There’s nothing quite like the excitement of these three days of cyclocross racing, from amateurs to pros, from local to international, from kids to dogs, all on a course and at a venue that has consistently been ranked among the favorite of World Cup racers. Race or heckle under the lights on Friday night, and keep it going all day Saturday and Sunday as racers give everything they’ve got to get up Mt. Krumpit, take their bike-handling skills to the limit on treacherous descents and the sand pit, and deal with the unpredictable conditions Iowa weather throws at them. You’ll be up close and personal with cycling heroes and celebrities, thanks to the Herculean efforts of dedicated local volunteers who make it all happen. There is no other sporting event like cyclocross—come experience it for yourself!

Fat bikes go pretty much anywhere. But the river bottom woods at the Terry Trueblood Recreation Area are the site of the annual I AM FAT (Iowa’s Annual Majestic Fat Ride Around Trueblood) fat bike enduro, and a prime spot in Johnson County for fat bike stomping. Trails are built when possible (depending on fluctuating river levels) and invite exploring.
