The Courage Ride travels over gently rolling hills, past Amish homesteads and over old stagecoach routes. The ride is known for its live music and one-of-a-kind rest stops that feature delicious food and friendly volunteers. There are six different routes, ranging from 16 miles to just over 100 miles. The ride starts at Iowa Mennonite School, 1421 540th St SW, Kalona, Ia., just 15 minutes SW of Iowa City. Registration: $50 prior to Aug. 16, $60 after. Includes breakfast and lunch, sag support and rest stops.
