Overnight Town Info:
Riders reaching Ida Grove will be greeted by castles. The town isn't trying to keep feuding warlords — or cyclists — out. Byron Godbersen, founder of Ida Grove's Midwest Industries, liked castles and made sure castle-like features such as gates and turrets were incorporated into the designs of buildings around the city of 2,050, including his company's plant.

In addition to serving as an overnight town in 2006, Ida Grove, which bills itself as CastleTown, U.S.A., accommodated riders in 1977 and 1988, incorporating castle themes into its festivities.
