Here’s a quick primer about today’s 52-mile ride from Knoxville to Oskaloosa:
WEATHER: The ride will start today with clear skies and temperatures in the mid-60s, WHO-TV forecasts. Expect a high in the mid-80s. There is a chance for storms late tonight.
Main Stage Entertainment: The Nadas & the Fishheads
Opening Acts: Oskaloosa Municipal Band
THE SIGHTS: Here’s a brief selection of the things you’ll encounter today:
More than tulips: Pella’s famous tulips will be gone by July, but riders can still enjoy the city’s other Dutch-themed attractions. For example, riders can visit the country’s largest working windmill.
Meaningful mural: Check out artist Todd Spaur’s mural when you ride through Bussey. Spaur painted the mural to thank the town’s residents for helping him after he was in a car accident.
Kiss a camel: Have you ever wanted to kiss a camel? You will get a chance to do just that in Beacon.
