It was one hot ride. Over 1,000 cyclists pedaled into Solon Saturday, June 29, as part of the Big Rove, a 36-mile RAGBRAI training ride. Big Rove, sponsored by RAGBRAI (Register’s Great Annual Bicycle Race Across Iowa), the Iowa Bicycle Coalition, Big Grove Brewery and Think Iowa City, took over the intersection of Main Street and Iowa Street for a street party most of the day. Solon was the midway point for the ride.
