Tire Swing Bicycle Tour

This new southwest Iowa cycling event is operated by Pete Phillips and Tammy Pavich of Pork Belly Ventures.  With its home base at beautiful and historic Carsten’s Farm, this 3-day bicycle tour of 300 to 500 riders will include tent camping, RV camping, motel-trailer “glamping,” all meals, portable shower trailers, portable toilets, live music on stage each afternoon and evening, bike mechanic services, massage therapy, and bonfires and marshmallows after dark.  Soft drinks, beer, and wine spritzers will be served to participants in accordance with Iowa law.  Tire Swing will offer two cycling routes daily.  Ride participants may choose between a paved route under 40 miles and a gravel route under 40 miles, or a rider may choose to ride both routes on one or more days.  The ride sponsor will offer a refreshment stop at about the midpoint of each day’s ride.
