Road Hogs Information

The Marion / Cedar Rapids


Bike Club



The Road Hogs are a family oriented bike club and we welcome new riders of all ages!

We follow the Ride Right rules of the road and wearing a helmet is required. We ride as a group for safety and make sure that no one gets left behind.

*** UPDATE (Spring 2016) ***

Our Saturday rides will begin Saturday, May 7th, at 8:30 am. We will meet at the Cedar Valley Nature Trail off Boyson Road on Saturday mornings. Those who are there can decide where they want to ride. The starting time is currently 8:30 am and will start earlier when the weather gets warmer (June or July).   Early in the biking season, rides are about 20 to 30 miles.  Rides will get longer as we get closer to Ragbrai.  If it is raining, we will not meet. There will also be some Sunday rides.  Kathy Conrad will send out reminders each week about the weekend rides.

The Road Hogs do encourage all riders to try and accomodate everyone, and anyone is welcome to join.  If you have any questions you can e-mail Kathy Carstens at or call (319) 721-8519. We hope to see everyone there.
