Party Ride

Distance - 24 mile round trip

Join us in Perry for The Original Winter Ride! Always on the first Saturday in February, BRR is a frozen-filled day of biking, prizes and entertainment. 

The 46th Annual BRR - Perry's Bike Ride to Rippey - is Saturday, February 4, 2023. This annual 24-mile round trip bike ride from Perry to Rippey and back has rolled on regardless of the weather since 1978! BRR riders have experienced frigid temperatures and wind chills while plowing through a foot of snow, but have also enjoyed spring like temperatures of 60 degrees! Either way, it's the tradition that rides on! Attendance has grown every year with riders and guests attending from all over Iowa, and the country! 

Registration is greatly appreciated, as it is the Perry Chamber of Commerce's annual FUNdraiser!
