Big Wheeled Ballyhoo Update

We are getting closer to the Big Wheeled Ballyhoo in Decorah, Iowa this coming June 23rd-24th. Here’s the latest dirt on what’s goin’ down!

Right now the trails are being primped and readied for all you big wheel lovin’ freaks to come and enjoy. Volunteers from the Decorah area under the guidance of the Decorah Human Powered Trails Committee are hard at work grooming and clearing the demo loop and the other trails we will be using to give you a guided tour of the finest trails in Iowa.

The demo loop looks to be about 3-4 miles in length and will include some rocky, rooty, technical sections along with some good climbs and descends. Great views overlooking the city of Decorah and the Upper Iowa River are awaiting you there too.

We have some demo bikes already showing up and being assembled. Look over to the right in the sidebar and click the Big Wheeled Ballyhoo icon for a list of some of the companies bringing bikes for you to check out.

Make your plans to come and join us. We have lots of trails, lots of bikes, and lots of fun waiting for ya’all. Check it out!

    Wow, there are two Human Powered Trails???

    I’m confused.

  2. Guitar Ted Says:

    Bob: Don’t be confused. Just come and ride your bike on some cool single track. Simple. Easy. Fun! 🙂

    I wish I could but I will be in SC that weekend.
    Really, are you guys just messing with me and that they have a human powered trails just 70 miles away from our human powered trails. Flattery will get you no where. 🙂
    Why not call it D.I.R.T Decorah IMBA Recreational Trails, or something like that. I like DIRT.

  4. Guitar Ted Says:

    Bob: It’s for real. That’s the name they use for the trails group in Decorah.

    I like dirt too, by the way! 🙂

  5. Jes Says:

    It’s actually Decorah Human Power Trails… DHPT if that helps with some settle some confusion.

  6. ButterBurrito Says:

    There is another HPT!?!?!? SWEEET!!!

    Is this a Human Powered Trails event weekend?
    So which Human Powered Trails event should I go to???

    Since there are 2 different big events, at 2 different HPT’s, that are in the same vicinity, and they are both on the same weekend…

    The 12/6/3 Hour and Single Speed Championship at the Human Powered Trails? Or the Big Wheeled Bally at the Human Powered Trails?

    HPT? HPT North? HPT South? HPT East? HPT West? HPT Wisconsin? HPT Iowa? Big Wheel HPT? 12 Hour HPT? La Crosse HPT? Decorah HPT?
    Decisions, Decisions…

    Now I’m even more confused! 😛

    Maybe I’ll Do Both! I don’t think you could ever have too many HPT’s!!!!
    (Kind of like McDonald’s, Starbuck’s or MalWart. )
