Written Directions

Start your route in the town of Sloan, IA (which is just about 20 miles southeast of Sioux City, IA). From Sloan just head east/southeast on Route 141 to Ute, IA.

Scenery

It's Iowa. Not much but corn and beans. It's the road that is important.

Road Quality

The road conditions change from town to town. Part of it is a tad worn out but still very safe.

Roadside Amenities

Small towns scatter this run (ex. Hornick, Smithland, Mapleton).

The description of this road is incomplete. Instead of starting in Sloan, one should catch D-25 (old 141) out of Sioux City. (Morningside Blvd. exit on the Hwy 20 bypass. Head east bound at the exit. Will quickly go southbound) This will take you all the way to Smithland at which point you hook up with the "new" Hwy 141 which you can take clear to Denison. Great views, twisties abound. Many offshoots that also have twisties through the Loess Hills. Most excellent area to ride. Generally, minimal traffic.

I quite agree with Mike Lueken's assessment on the route. Need to start at the old 141 in Sioux City and run to Dennison. Very pretty with a nice curvy road which is what I give the 4 for.

This is not properly namaed as OLD Highway 141 runs from Sioux City to Smithland IA. This route follows the current 141 but it is a nice ride from smithland on I would recommend starting in Sioux City and riding to smithland then follow the rest of the route east

Mike is absolutely correct. By missing the old 141 connection out of Sioux City you may be missing the most beautiful part of the ride. In contrast, by leaving from Sloan, you are gaining the least interesting part of the ride. Those two alternate stretches are at the opposite ends of the spectrum in terms of riding enjoyment.
