The Harvets Rush Grave Grinder has joined the Iowa Gravel Series!!

Friendly to both new and experienced racers, the Iowa Gravel Series is about having a great day in the saddle and riding some of the best roads in Iowa. These are races where you can invite your family or buddy that's new to gravel grinding or group riding and know the route will be well marked and the people friendly.

For the 2024 season we have some amazing races in a some of the most beautiful places in Iowa. Here's the list:

  • Kalona Horseshoe - May 4th
  • Silver City Century - May 18th
  • Waukon 100 - June 15th
  • Albia Holy Cow - July 20th
  • Soldier Cutoff Hillduro in Pisgah - August 10th
  • Glenwood Superbloom - Sept. 21st
  • Fairfield Harvest Rusn - Sept. 28th

Why should you sign up for a whole season of races?

Glory, the challenge, to save money, gain all the points you can, do something no one has done before... heck, we could go on and on! We can't come up for a reason NOT to sign up for the whole season.
