The granGABLE powered by Scheels is a mass-participation cycling event that combines all that is Hawkeye with good health, exercise, and a commitment to excellence. Nobody embodies this more than legendary athlete and coach, Dan Gable. Through an incredible partnership between Coach Gable, the Iowa City/Coralville Area Convention & Visitors Bureau, the Iowa Bicycle Coalition, and RAGBRAI (yes, the experts at RAGBRAI), the ride has emerged as a premier fondo in Iowa!
Ride with cyclists from all over the Hawkeye state and beyond on Sunday, October 1, 2017. Choose from 60 miles or challenge yourself by training like Gable and riding 100 miles! All century finishers will earn the exclusive and highly sought after granGABLE completion medal. Registration will open in April and specific details on the route, jersey design and other 2107 merchandise will be announced in the upcoming months. So save the date and get to training so you can “pedal for the medal.”
Proceeds from the granGABLE fondo will benefit the Iowa Bicycle Coalition and Hawkeye Wrestling Club. Learn more about them by viewing their respective pages on our website.
Join us after the ride for our granGABLE Post Party! Cool down and relax with food, drinks, live music while hanging out with friends, family, and fellow finishers at this special event commemorating your accomplishment.
Go Hawks, Ride Right, and On IOWA!
