Want to escape the daily grind of work and the news cycle, but don't have time to bike across Iowa? Subscribe to our limited podcast "Bike Shorts," and we'll help you break away from the stress of the everyday.
Every year on RAGBRAI, (The Register's Annual Great Bike Ride Across Iowa,) thousands of riders throw aside their usual routines to share a common goal, biking across the state of Iowa from the banks of the Missouri River to the shores of the Mississippi. IPR's Ben Kieffer will be doing all the biking and sweating, all you have to do is listen.
Each episode of "Bike Shorts" strings together 20 minutes of escapism along the RAGBRAI route through the eyes of Team No Pie Refused (NPR), joined by IPR's Clay Masters. The NPR personalities are spending their vacations biking across Iowa. "Bike Shorts" taps into their excitement and keen skills of observation to experience the charm and quirkiness of Iowa.
The heart of "Bike Shorts" is people from all different origins, careers and backgrounds coming together as a tribe on wheels to explore Iowa culture and share community. Come along for the ride!
