The Pedaler's Jamboree is a music festival created for bicycle riders and non-riders alike! Get a ticket for a weekend bicycle ride full of adventure or a non-rider ticket for the main stage festivities in Bondurant on August 25th. We will be visiting the Chichaqua Valley Trail (CVT) and it's communities in 2018.  

For non-riders with ticket passes to the overnight destination at the Bondurant Recreational Sports Complex (2050 Jr Haines Pkwy, Bondurant, IA), gates open at 3 pm on Saturday, August 25th. Camping will also be available at this same location. Non-Rider tickets (to just the trailside locations) will be available in Baxter and at the Ira & Mingo gates.  Tickets are also available for just the Bondurant music/camping experience at the Bondurant Sports Complex.

Bicyclists depart on the morning of Saturday, August 25th from the Neil Seales Sports Complex (309 W Station St, Baxter, IA) which is straight down the road from the trailhead in Baxter, IA. Check in time is from 9 am until 11 am.  Drop off your overnight packs at check in and prepare for a weekend of relaxed bike riding, music, and fun. The trail encompasses a wide range of landscapes, from wooded stretches, prairies, rivers and farmland. Stop at your convenience at a handful of locations to enjoy live music and entertainment. Bands will play throughout the day in communities across the trail.

The final destination will host the feature event with main stage music. Overnight camping is included for all registered riders! Hotel/motel accommodations are available  in Altoona, IA (stay tuned for shuttle details). There will be food vendors at the campground/music area.

The following day (Sunday, August 26), riders will return to to Baxter, IA on the trail. Music and festivities will continue to rock until riders complete the ride at the end of the day on Sunday.

Interested in a charter tent and comfort service?

We are long time fans of the Jamboree and are thrilled to offer tent service packages at this year's Iowa event. Picture this, you arrive at the Bondurant Sports Complex after a long day on the trail and there is a tent set up and waiting for you. Inside that tent is an inflated airbed, camp chair, and your personal gear, safe and dry. Options available for Saturday night or the combination of Friday night (pre-party) and Saturday night! - CLICK HERE TO LEARN MORE
