300 M or 150 M

Ride Description

RAID is an annual ride/race across the State of Iowa. The route chosen for RAID 2011 is about 300 miles in length, along Hwy 92, from Council Bluffs to Muscatine. In response to public interest, we have also created two RAID Half rides, about 150 miles each, for those wanting to participate in RAID but not yet ready to tackle the full 300 miles.

For clarify, we differentiate between these events as follows:

  • RAID Full – 300 miles, from Council Bluffs to Muscatine
  • RAID Half AM – 150 miles, from Council Bluffs to Indianola
  • RAID Half PM – 150 miles, from Indianola to Muscatine

Riders MUST wear helmets and must obey all Iowa traffic laws. This includes stopping at all stop signs and red lights.

Rider numbers will be provided.

Rider & Personal Support Vehicle

If you plan to participate in RAID, you will need to arrange your own vehicle support. RAID will have a limited number of volunteers trying to help with traffic control at key locations during the race, but you should not count on these vehicles being your only source of vehicle support. It is strongly encouraged that each rider, or group of riders, have their own vehicle support system.

Rest Stops

There will be five official rest stops with food and water along the way, and a rest stop at the finish line.

Rest Stop # 1 50 miles open 6:00 AM – 7:30 AM
Rest Stop # 2 96 miles open 8:00 AM – 10:30 AM
Lunch Stop 146 miles open 10:00 AM – 1:30 PM
Rest Stop # 4 196 miles open 12:00 PM – 4:15 PM
Rest Stop # 5 249 miles open 2:20 PM – 7:40 PM
Finish Line 297 miles open 4:20 PM – 10:30 PM
