RAID is an annual ride/race across the State of Iowa. The route chosen for RAID 2013 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 Pleasantville
- RAID Half PM – 150 miles, from Pleasantville 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.
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||40 miles||open 5:39 AM – 6:36 AM|
|Rest Stop # 2||100 miles||open 8:20 AM – 10:50 AM|
|Lunch Stop||150 miles||open 10:26 AM – 2:08 PM|
|Rest Stop # 4||200 miles||open 12:41 PM – 5:41 PM|
|Rest Stop # 5||250 miles||open 2:52 PM – 9:07 PM|
|Finish Line||300 miles||open 4:44 PM – 12:00 AM|
Riders are responsible for making it the starting line and returning home.
