Goodfellows - Bike SUX $35 benefit bike ride registration for $20

Goodfellows - Bike SUX $35 benefit bike ride registration for $20 - Saturday, June 16 event starting at 9 am at Minerva's

Get your bikes and helmets ready, and register to participate in Bike SUX for the third annual Summer Ride! Not only will you see area sites, but you will get your exercise while helping a Siouxland charity.

Saturday, June 16 - Minerva's, 2945 Hamilton, Blvd., Sioux City, IA
7:30 am - 9:00 am
Ride Starts: 9:00 am

The ride, sponsored by Sioux City Journal Communications, Minerva's, MarkIt, Scheels, CenturyLink and New Belgium Brewing benefits The Goodfellows Charity, which has been in existence for more than 100 years. Goodfellows provides gifts for more than 9,000 children during Christmas. The numbers keep growing, so a small group 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, they started the first community ride Bike SUX (SUX are the call letters for Sioux City’s airport, strange but true). The first year was very successful. More than 150 riders came to Sioux City from as far as Minneapolis to participate.

The ride starts at Minerva’s, a local bar and restaurant that provides the lunch and space for both the registration and the final stop for lunch and entertainment.

The race grown beyond the group’s wildest dreams! They anticipate more than 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, they encourage newbies to dust off their bicycles and give cycling a whirl.

Not only is the ride fun but Bike SUX offers great swag bags full of all kinds of gift certificates and goodies from local and national companies... and the T-shirts are awesome (available for $9 each)!

There will be THREE routes, all starting at Minerva’s.

Route One – up Hamilton to K-22 to the C-60 turn off and back approximately 15 easy miles

Route Two – same as Route One but will continue past C-60 on K-22 and you can ride as long as you want

Route Three – starts with the same Route One and Two but will turn onto C-60 through Hinton to Le Mars and back. Approximately 60 miles.

There will be SAG wagons – just in case.
