Get Ready For The 2017 J&P Cycles Iowa Rally

2017 Iowa Rally

Open House Rally is taking on a new name for 2017. With new and exciting things coming to Anamosa you won’t want to miss out. So book a room, grab your camping gear and get ready to rally with us!

Remembering John Parham 

John Parham, the founder of J&P Cycles passed away last April. We encourage all to celebrate John’s legacy with the J&P Cycles community at the rally. A celebration wall for riders to sign and share their stories will be available all weekend long. Also, we will be holding an honorary ride 8:00 AM Sunday morning, June 25th starting and ending at the J&P Cycles Anamosa Retail Store. We hope to see you there.

Hot Bike Garage Build Off

The Hot Bike Garage Build Off is your chance to show the editors of Hot Bike and Baggers Magazine you have what it takes to win the Hot Bike Garage Build Off. This is a calling to the unknown builders, no big shops, no pros. Just the regular guys with a wrench and a vision. All V-Twin customs welcomed. First place winner will receive a $3,000 J&P Cycles Gift Card and an invitation to compete in the Invitational Build Off. Additionally, the best bolt-on build will receive a $200 J&P Cycles gift card. This build will also land a spot in an upcoming J&P Cycle’s mailer and website gallery. If you are interested in entering your bike in the build off see our Iowa Rally event page for more information. 

Great Riding Destinations

The great state of Iowa has breathtaking routes and destinations to enjoy while attending the Iowa Rally. Take a trip down to Dubuque and enjoy the National Mississippi River Museum & Aquarium, ride 59 miles north of Anamosa to Backbone State Park, or even visit the Field of Dreams movie site. Our favorite destination is just down the road from the J&P Cycles Anamosa location. The National Motorcycle Museum in Anamosa is the perfect destination for motorcycle lovers with over 450 motorcycles and thousands of pieces of memorabilia from all over the world. Check out the J&P Cycles Cruising Destination Suggestions to map out your stay in Anamosa.

Over 50 Vendors: Deals, Demonstrations, Installations and More. 

We will have over 50 vendors this year at the J&P Cycles Iowa Rally. This means deals you won’t want to miss along with product demonstrations and installations. This is a great time to get your hands on those parts and accessories you’ve been eyeing but want to know just a little more before you pull the trigger. Worried about how much room you’ve got in your saddlebags? No need to fret we have free shipping to home on store purchases. We will have more on special offers, stay up to date by checking back with our Iowa Rally event page.

Live Music and Complimentary Lunch

What would a rally be without music, beer and food? We will live music all weekend along with a beer garden. If that isn’t enough we will also be serving a complimentary lunch both Saturday and Sunday. Donations are recommended and all proceeds will benefit Camp Courageous; a local non-profit organization based out of Monticello, Iowa. Camp Courageous is a year-round respite care and recreational facility for individuals of all ages with disabilities. Learn more about Camp Courageous here.

Stunt Show

Cowboy Kenny’s Steel Rodeo Tour will be making a return to Anamosa for the Iowa Rally. Some of the world’s best freestyle motocross riders will perform dangerous stunts, it’s a show you won’t want to miss. These guys will be throwing some big whips and even a few back flips not once but several times throughout the event. You can catch the show every few hours on both Saturday and Sunday. Check out our Iowa Rally event page for the full schedule. 

We hope to see you in June! Let us know if you can make it on our Facebook event page

    One of the best times I’ve ever been to.
