Time Trial

Distance - The Iowa Games cycling time trial is a 20K (12.4 mile) race. The course is set to go 10K straight out and 10K straight back.

Have you ever wanted to try bike racing but were not comfortable with the idea of racing in a group? Then a time trial is for you.

A cycling time trial race is a type of competition where each rider races alone against the clock, rather than directly against other riders. Riders start one at a time. Drafting is not allowed. The goal is to complete a set course in the shortest time possible. This makes it less intimidating for new riders who may feel nervous about competing in a group, because they don't have to worry about riding in a pack or making quick decisions around other riders.

Check-in will begin at 11:30am.

First rider starts at 1:00pm. Riders start at 1-minute intervals.

USAC License is not required.


  • Beginner
  • Experienced
  • Recumbent
  • Tandem

NOTE: To keep an even playing field, those that won gold in the Beginner division in previous years (formally the Novice or Citizen divisions) will need to register for the Experienced division. If participants do not register that way, the Commissioner will move them automatically.
