DES MOINES, Iowa – If you’re a classic car lover, there’s still time to take part in a road trip across Iowa on Highway 6.
The drive isn’t until October, but the Iowa U.S. Route 6 Tourist Association is trying to get the word out now. The goal of the three-day “River to River Retro Road Trip” is to raise awareness of the history of Route 6, and to support small mom-and-pop shops along the way.

About 20 people gathered Friday in Council Bluffs in the 100 block of Broadway to begin a ride across Iowa along U.S. Highway 6 as part of the River to River Motorcycle Cruise.
Rodger Freel and his wife, Tami, both of Des Moines, chose to ride a scooter because they had recently switched from motorcycles.
