Urban Acres - Parade of Homes Bike Ride Anita Newhouse May 1, 2017

Pedal Your Way to the Area’s Parade Homes

Grab your bikes, and get ready to ride — on June 3rd Urban Acres will be hosting its 2nd Annual Urban Acres Parade of Homes Bike Ride.

Urban Acres has created four unique routes — varying from 15 to 32 miles in length — that will guide riders to food, drinks, and Johnson County’s finest new and remodeled homes.

How to participate:

Everyone is welcome!  All you need is an official Parade of Homes ticket, which will provide access to all homes and remodeling projects.

Riders can purchase a Parade of Homes ticket for $8 at Iowa River Power the morning of the ride or at Urban Acres office leading up to the event. Tickets can also be purchased at the Greater Iowa City Area Home Builders Association office located at 11 S. Gilbert Street in Iowa City.

Participants will use the ticket throughout the ride, and will receive punches at every house they visit. Bike racks built by Kirkwood’s Architecture, Construction & Engineering (ACE) Career Academy will serve as designated bike parking at each house.

Get ready to pedal!

The ride will be kicked off at 10 am at Iowa River Power with breakfast, drink specials, and giveaways. Riders can pick their route of choice and receive the official Urban Acres wristband which provides access to drink specials at participating local businesses. Geoff’s Bikes will have a tent set up to offer mechanical support to make sure that riders get off to a great start.
