City plans inaugural 100-mile bike ride at Terry Trueblood Recreation Center

At a national meeting of the League of American Bicyclists in March, local bicycle advocate Bob Oppliger, a member of the organization’s Board of Directors, learned of an event that piqued his interest: 100-mile bike race around a local lake in Fergus Falls, Minnesota.

After learning about that, Oppliger spoke with Brad Barker, the Iowa City recreation superintendent, about bringing a similar event here.

“I thought about it and decided we could do it at Trueblood [Recreation Area],”
