Announcing the Interactive Bike Trails Video Tour!

The Interactive Bike Trails Video Tour involves the following: (1) Upload videos of local bike trails and suggested routes, (2) Create YouTube playlists of these ride segments to form complete ride videos, (3) Provide links from each video to choices of where to go next for an interactive experience, (4) Include a narrated Google Maps guide showing a bird’s eye view of each ride by enabling satellite view and bike trails view. — Any municipality or community can replicate this project to create their own local guided video bike tours (or even walking tours). To request your own personalized bike trail in the Iowa City area, visit IowaCityBikeTrails.com/guide.

Bike Trails: Coralville to Clear Creek Trail via Mormon Trek

This video shows a suggested bicycling route to get from Coralville to Clear Creek Trail via Mormon Trek. This video was recorded on 4 Aug 2017 by Greg Johnson.

Note: At some points during the video, excessive wind noise can be heard. Feel free to turn down the audio if that bothers you. The conditions were great for recording video, but not for audio. Narration could be added in the studio, but that would require reducing the natural background ambient sounds. If a replacement video is provided in the future, a link will be provided here.
