Trans Iowa

Last weekend Portland framebuilder Ira Ryan won the Trans Iowa race for the second time. The 300 mile gravel grinder is a good example of the kind of racing that is growing in the cycling underground. Loosely organized, no support events for only the serious cyclist. These racers are not for everyone and that is kind of the point.
Ira has a great write-up about his race on his blog. Locally there has been more rumblings about a mountain bike century taking place in late July and of course there is always the Midnight Century to be thinking about. And yes I am still thinking about doing a second lap for anyone interested.
