The 9th running of the Granddaddy of Gravel Grinders, Trans Iowa, is April 27-28.
This show is going to be forum style and we want other past Trans Iowa riders and current people on the roster to chime in. We'd love to hear from others that love riding gravel. Call in and share!
Guitar Ted is the man behind the Trans Iowa curtain. He spends countless hours of his own time to concoct one of the toughest races in the country.
Salsa Cycles rider and frequent MBR guest, Tim Ek, will join the show to answer my rookie questions. Guitar Ted will give both me and Tim Trans Iowa knowledge tidbits.
While I have a lot of endurance racing experience, I'm racing Trans Iowa for the first time and have some rookie thoughts and questions and I'm going to pick their brains for the answers.

When Executive Chef Konrad Meier joined Bedford Springs Resort, located in Bedford, Pennsylvania, he was absolutely enthralled to find that local farms offered some of the best fresh produce he has ever seen, and that includes his native Germany!
As designer of the resort?s menus for six restaurants, including The Crystal Dining Room and The Frontier Tavern, he has discovered new and exciting ways to offer the seasonal produce, cheeses, and meats of the Cumberland Valley in his menus.
Offering traditional American cuisine with mid-Atlantic roots, his dishes are artfully prepared with fresh ingredients grown by local purveyors and always provide a pinch of romance, a dash of fun, and mounds of comfort and appeal.
With a wealth of culinary talent and tons of enthusiasm, Meier has appeared on numerous TV shows, most recently in Baltimore, Washington, DC, and Pittsburgh. He is also passionate about sharing his recipes with others and teaches demonstrations and classes for guests of the resort and members of the Bedford community.
