I Wanna Iowa!

Experience all that Iowa has to offer and help promote tree science at the 2022 Tour des Trees.

The Tour des Trees is a multiday, supported bike tour, which will start in Des Moines, Iowa and end in Nebraska City, Nebraska. Tour des Trees riders will spend up to six days riding through western Iowa and Nebraska, engaging with communities and raising funds for TREE Fund.

Riders can choose one, two, three, four, five, or six-day ride options and will raise funds for each day they ride. The total mileage over the six days totals over 440 miles!

In addition to riding and having fun on their bikes, riders will also be ambassadors for the TREE Fund and for tree science; stopping at various spots along the way and spreading the word about the importance of trees and tree care.

After registering, all riders will create an online fundraising page to help them towards reaching their fundraising goal. Riders will also be able to reserve a custom bike jersey and other gear which will make them the envy of their cycling friends. Hotels and meals are provided, as well as sag support along the route.

This year’s Tour des Trees starts on Saturday, September 3 and runs through Saturday, September 10.


Can’t make it out to Iowa to ride this year but still want to be a part of the event? Experience the Tour from home with our Virtual Challenge! 

The challenge is simple: register for the event, fundraise, and ride/run/exercise along with us from the comfort of your own home. Just track your accomplishments on your fundraising page via the Strava app and get enrolled for prizes.

Participants who fundraise are automatically eligible for prizes, so while you're completing your challenge, please share the word about TREE Fund and help us hit our goals. 

The virtual campaign will span through September 30. There will be additional livestream events, at-home challenges, and more that will coincide with our in-person ride, so you really are part of the event! Watch for updates, events, and special offers via email.
