    Cedar Rapids, Iowa

    Spending some time in Cedar Rapids - At least a few months and possibly relocating here permanently. Have tons of family in the area which is what brought me here in the first place.

    Anyways, I'd love to meet up with some other riders in the area. I've reached out to LAMBA and got a few hits but most people aren't riding due to the cold/snowy weather. Being a crazy person, I ride in it all the time!

    So, if there are any riders in the Cedar Rapids/Iowa City/Eastern IA area that want to meet up and ride even in our current weather, post up!

    Hey Man, I ride all year and there are quite a few guys in the Iowa city area that ride at Sugarbottom rec area . You should check out World of bikes in IC , they have a huge selection of Fatbikes to demo and are really cool guys to deal with. (I checked out your blog a little) I dont get up to IC as much as I would like this time of year but If you want to venture even further south there are several places to ride. A nice mix of gravel, level b access roads and some equestrian/singletrack down here.

    We're about an hour and a half away from CR, but the Friends of Off Road Cycling in the Quad Cities are always up for a ride.

    Post up on the FORC forum - qcforc dot org / forum - and I'm sure you'll find a riding pal or two.

    Thanks for the replies everyone! I've meet a couple guys out at Beverly in CR and we're planning some future rides. I will be down at the Fat Bike Enduro event in Iowa City this Saturday taking place at Trueblood Recreation area.

    I've been enjoying the snow, so it's sort of a bummer that it's melting, but warmer temps are kind of nice (not that they're sticking around for that long).

    Anyway...I'm looking forward to checking out IC this weekend. I'm going to bring one of my bikes in addition to demoing a fat bike. Any other rides going on down that way this weekend?
