The 2016 RAGBRAI Expo will be held on Saturday, July 23, 2016 in downtown Glenwood Iowa around the town square.

Hours for the expo are 12 noon to 9:00 pm on Saturday.

BIKEIOWA will only be at Glenwood. So don't expect to see our tent in the rest of the overnights because WE are gonna ride with YOU the rest of the week.

We are stoked to see all of you on Saturday and throughout the week!

A First for BIKEIOWA

This will be the first year BIKEIOWA has been an exhibitor at the RAGBRAI expo and we are excited! We have been riding out toward the start and decided to shake it up a bit this year.

If you know BIKEIOWA, then you know this isn't our full-time job, we love to promote Iowa cycling and enjoy creating new and unique designs. The proceeds we receive from the sales, goes right back into BIKEIOWA. To help promote other events and causes, we give away thousands of dollars in swag and stickers every year to cyclists, charities, races and other rides. We are consumers too and we sell our gear at a good price-point that won't gouge you. Think about that when you purchase something from us.

All Jerseys, cycling caps and socks are by Primal Wear, and Ed & Jen of T-shirt Graphix in Des Moines has printed all of our T-shirts since day one! Thanks to both companies for their partnership over the years.


We'll be debuting several new items at the Expo. You'll want to stock up for the week.
  • Full Color Slap Coozies - we'll have two new kickin' unique designs and we can guarantee there will not be other coozies like these out on the ride. We will only have 150 or one design and 250 of the other one. TIP: One design you can actually use for more than keeping your beverage cold... So.. If you want something really cool and "Iowa-like" for $5, you best get your spandex-clad bootie to the BIKEIOWA booth early.

  • Girlie Loose Tanks - This versatile tank will have the "I heart BIKEIOWA" logo on the front and boasts a sporty racer-back and a form flattering relaxed fit. Perfect over sports bras and under tunics, cardigans or sweatshirts. Made of blended polyester with a touch of spandex that makes it as comfy as it is cute. (quantities are very limited)

  • Socks - This is the first year we've had socks. All black with a white BIKEIOWA logo wrapping the ankle in the mid cuff-ankle height socks. There are 250,000 sweat glands in the feet.
