Sat Sep 21 2019 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM


Mondamin Community Center
Mondamin, IA


Richard and Tammi Mether



Distance - Shorter route is 28 miles; longer route is 52.5 -- or 58.5, if you make the extra 6-mile-round-trip trek into Mondamin for more food at the halfway point.

A ride-at-your-own-pace cycling event with two route options, Embrace the Hills is a fully supported ride along the beautiful Loess Hills of Western Iowa. Lots of snacks and home-made goodies along the routes. Pre-ride "brunch" items are available (free) if you wish, and a full meal (free) is served at the Mondamin Community Center, all day. We grill chicken breasts, brats, and burgers, and there are home-made sides and desserts. You will not lose weight on this ride...


Registration opens at 8 AM, and the ride officially starts at 9 a.m. However, you may begin your ride at any time.

All routes begin and end at the Mondamin Community Center in Mondamin, Iowa. 28-mile route travels through Pisgah, Little Sioux, and River Sioux. A longer, hillier route takes the scenic Magnolia/Logan roads, then that route joins the shorter route. This route is either 52.5 or 58.5 miles, depending upon whether you take an extra trek into Mondamin (for more free food fuel) at the "half-way" point, 6 miles round trip off the main route.

Free snacks are available in Pisgah, Magnolia, and Logan, and SAG WAGONs will be checking the cyclists throughout the day.
