Nice open road through farmland
Nice minimal trafic route
2-lane paved that climbs and runs along the top of Loess Hills, then along a river valley. Scenic with good rolling hills and corners.
It is a nice ride with plenty of fuel and food stops. A nice day ride.
Near Dexter you can visit the shoot out memorial, Drew's chocolates, the round block building that was owned by Nick Noltes family. Along the white pole route you will find a great old gas station with the neon sign still working, sorry no gas though. Stay on the route and just south of I-80 you will find the famous freedom rock painted by Bubba Sorenson as a tribute to our veterans. This alone is worth the trip. As a side trip you may want to go on to Brandon Iowa and take a picture with the worlds largest frying pan. It weighs 1/2 ton and can hold 44 dozen eggs. Only In IOWA have a great ride
Nice sweepers and very little traffic. As usual in this area, be careful in the spring and fall, there are farm vehicles.
Fun road with big sweepers. Favorite of sport bikers on the week-ends. Be aware some of the corners are off-camber... State patrol presence on week-ends as well!
I've taken most of this route several times, but most of the route south of Glenwood I've taken only a couple times. Even so, I've enjoyed the curvy and slightly-hilly roads. The road passes through several small towns where food and gas are routinely available. Although the Loess Hills National Scenic Byway (which actually goes north of Council Bluffs past Sioux City) ends as the Iowa/Missouri border, SR-275 between the border and Rock Port is still a nice road for riding.Enjoy!
Easy, relaxing sweepers, a nice ride.
Selection of great scenery and easy corners, relax and enjoy.
Some nice sweeping curves and little other traffic about.
A few easy corners in this corner starved area.
Good curves and interesting road by the Loess hills. Not much traffic either.
