2nd annual Embrace the Hills bicycle ride:


We have two route options, both with mild hills and flat miles. There's a 30-mile route that all cyclists will start with, and we have an additional 43-mile ride for those who need more time in the saddle (for a total of 73). Please pre-register by emailing Tammi or calling! This is a NOT-FOR-PROFIT ride, and all funds after expenses will be given to our local food pantry, Matthew House.


Pisgah, Iowa, up gradually to Murray Hill

(one of the highest points in Harrison Co),

then through Little Sioux and River Sioux.

Then the route goes south (several FLAT miles)

to Mondamin for a make-your-own omelet and lotsa

homemade goodies. To finish the 30, you

will take the hilly route back to Pisgah. Those

needing more miles will then go back through

the route toward River Sioux, but then turn

north toward Blencoe for some more snacks.

After some flat miles, you will turn toward the

hills and head through Moorhead, then back

to Pisgah.
