Have you ever been guilty of taking your very own state for granted, at least in terms of fun things to see and do?
Full disclosure: I used to be guilty of that offense.
Then, a couple years ago, I discovered the world of biking...and things took a turn for the much better.
Although, I'd been no stranger to "in-town" cycling, the mileage wasn't very high and the consistency was marginal (at best). Then, a freaky stress fracture wreaked havoc on my foot. Running was out of commission for several months, but cycling got the green light go-ahead.
And I discovered the allure of exploring Iowa, via two wheels.
There's numerous sights to see, many of which are courtesy of trails throughout the state. I reside in the central part of the state, so here's a few highlights (and significant landmarks) within an hour's drive from my house.
Have you been to Iowa? If so, have you ever checked out the trails? Have you explored your state, via a bike trail?
