Iowa Bicycle Festival
Celebrating the bicycle -- and those who ride it.
August 9,10 & 11, 2013
Here we go again! The second annual Iowa Bicycle Festival, part of which was held on May 25 before dangerous thunderstorms forced postponement, is now ready to roll in Jefferson – bigger and better than ever. The sponsoring Cyclists Of Greene (COG) bike club has special activities planned for all ages, and they’ll be for bicyclists and non-bicyclists alike.
That’s “P.I.G.S.,” which stands for “Paired Iowans Going Somewhere” on the tandem bicycles that they ride. They have been gathering once a summer in Iowa since 1995 at different towns and cities across the state, and they are having their 19th rally in Jefferson as part of our Iowa Bicycle Festival. They’re coming from across Iowa and from at least three other states, riding bicycles-built-for-two that are valued up to $10,000. click here to learn more
