Trans Iowa is an annual non-stop, self-supported, solo competition along the gravel roads of rural Iowa. The 2013 edition of the ride will start and end in Grinnell, Iowa, and cover over 300 miles. There is no entry fee for the ride, but the number of entrants is capped at 100.
Each rider is considered to be on a private excursion and remains solely responsible for any accidents in which he or she may be involved. No responsibility can be accepted for riders becoming lost or stranded.
Competitors will stock up on food and other items at stores and businesses along the route. Competitors must carry with them ALL necessary equipment. When you're out riding in Iowa in early Spring, the weather can change rapidly at any time, and being prepared for wind and rain or snowy conditions with the gear that you carry will make your ride much more enjoyable. Even on a 60 degree day, it's possible to get cold very quickly if you have to stop to fix a mechanical problem or become injured, so always carry a waterproof/windproof jacket or thermal top and dress in layers appropriate to the conditions.
This event will happen regardless of rain, sleet, snow, drought, wind, rabbit infestation, etc. You get the idea.
