Thousands cyclocross for University of Iowa Children's Hospital

Posted: Updated:
IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

Cyclists from across the country raced around the Johnson County Fairgrounds this weekend.

It's part of the annual Jingle Cross Cyclocross Races.

Events were held Friday through Sunday and featured men's and women's pro races,  and amateur races, too.

"I'm racing against guys who are paid to do it, so it's humbling in that sense," said Cyclist Nicholas Lemke.  "It's a serious hobby, it takes a lot of time and money. It's pretty rewarding , I meet a lot of people and it's a healthy hobby.  
    
There were more than 1,500 cyclists participating.  All the proceeds will be donated to the University of Iowa Children's Hospital.
