No races there.
There is a groop of ice riders around here that are on the Ice every weekend.
Have you ask around at the cycle shops up there?
Thanks,
I have some tires on order. I will be down there on the 19th or 20th.
I did ask at a struthers here in des moines and they really had no info.
I don't mind driving down there.

I looked on google maps and it looks like its east of ottumwa and next to blakeburg?

I got a serious jones on for getting slideways! Braaap!

They ride on the lagoons that are on the south side of the river kind of on the west side of Ottumwa.

Thanks! Yeah, I just picked it up in early November - a leftover '12 that I just couldn't pass up. Actually got a few good rides in before the snow hit.

Hate you so bad right now Eems.

Sold my XL. Thank god. Too much work and not enough time.

I did ride to work yesterday. Love the heated grips on the Multi more and more each day.
Wife said I was nuts.

I’m impressed, I don’t see many other bikes out there when I’m riding to work.

Does anybody know when the bike night in Coralville starts up again? I haven't gone for a year or two but would like to see what the other bikers around here are up to.

Give that man a cigar! Yep, Kent Park. And, I thought I noticed a bit of extra drool on the seat.
