Join us on June 3, 2023 in Sioux Center, Iowa for the 3rd Annual Gear Up For Summer Bike Ride. This ride was formerly known as the "WOW" ride.
The Sioux Center Trails Council is excited to host this event partnering with our sponsor Entegro Health for the 3rd year. All of the proceeds and donations will go towards purchasing bike aid stations along the expanding trail system in Sioux Center. See the pictures of the 2 stations we have purchased so far!
The event will start at Children's Park with staggered times based on the ride distance. The rides will have a rolling 1 hour start, however, lunch starts at 11! Plan your start time based on your pace and weather!
