PLEASE join us for another season of Renegade Cyclocross Practices in Des Moines hosted by the BIKEIOWA Racing Team.

NEW FOR 2023 - We are hosting weekly practices to different Des Moines Parks this year!  Fresh parks and varying courses will make for some exciting practices! The venue and course layout will be different each week.

Practices will be held each Tuesday from September through the first week in November.

Show up. Warm Up. Ride at your own pace. Organized laps start at 5:45 pm for those interested.
Practices will be held rain or shine unless the ground is completely saturated with water or there is a big storm,

Watch, Facebook and Twitter for up-to-date info.

Renegade Cyclocross Practices are held AT YOUR OWN RISK!

** PLEASE sign a waiver at your first practice before you participate. **


This is a training race, bike practice, or whatever else you kids want to call it. No entry fees, no prizes, no official results. Please understand the word "race" is used loosely.

What it WILL be is a great opportunity to get some intensity in, practice barriers, run-ups and other cyclocross skills and ride against guys of varying abilities. This makes it a GREAT chance for newer riders to gain some confidence and have some fun, while the experienced guys get a good workout and pass on some knowledge. Above all, it's a good reason to ride cross bikes with friends. Cool?


This IS the place to learn! Find out more about Cyclocross, the courses, and the bike set-up at Cyclocross 101. Cyclocross is one of the fastest-growing cycling disciplines of the 21st century. Getcha some!


Each week, practices will be held at a different Des Moines Park.  Fresh parks and varying courses make for some exciting practices! The venue and course layout will be different each week.

With it getting dark so quick after the time change and this being the LAST organized Tuesday practice, we are hosting practice AT Captains Roy's. The course will be... let's say.... tight and unique!
Bring your bike. Expect Fun, then stick around for refreshments and food at Roy's afterwards!

Thanks to

  • Des Moines Parks and Recreation for maintaining the Des Moines Parks System.

  • Brian Duffy for the Renegade Cyclocross logo.

  • The BIKEIOWA Racing Team, and members of other local teams who help set up and tear down each week.


We'll set up a different course each week to include barriers, run-ups, with twists and turns to hone your cyclocross skills.
