The Sioux City Journal has been committed to The Goodfellows Charity for over 100 years. We provide gifts for over 9,000 children during Christmas. The numbers keep growing.
So a small group of us got together and saw two needs, one to raise more money for the growing need and two to promote cycling in the Siouxland area.
Three years ago we started our first community ride Bike SUX (SUX are the call letters for our airport, strange but true). Our first year was far more successful than we could have possibly dreamed of. We had over 150 riders coming to Sioux City from as far as Minneapolis to participate.
The ride starts at Minerva’s a local bar and restaurant who provides the lunch and space for both the registration and the final stop for lunch and entertainment.
We have grown beyond our wildest dreams! We anticipate over 250 riders from all over.
With RAGBRAI always starting on the Western side of Iowa this ride has proven to be a trial run for the big ride in July!
Riders of all kinds can participate, in fact we encourage newbies to dust off their bicycles and give cycling a whirl.
Not only is the ride fun but we offer great swag bags full of all kinds of gift certificates and goodies from local and national companies. And our t-shirts are awesome!
