Sterile Iowan Bike Route

The Sterile Iowan is a gravel road ride through Hardin County. The event features 100, 200, 300 or 400 mile rides that pass by multiple towns. Organizer Dan Loughry said the main event will take place on May 30, but others may also ride May 29 or May 31. All proceeds with go to the Hardin County Trails group in Iowa Falls.

The Dirty Kanza, a popular gravel road bike race in Kansas, bills itself as "The World's Premier Gravel Grinder."

That motto was all the motivation Dan Loughry, a former Iowa Falls resident, needed to create a similar gravel road bike ride in Hardin County last year.
