Are you ready for another great bacon-filled cycling event? BACooN RIDE will return on June 17, 2023!
Like to ride Bicycles? Like Bacon? Like the Raccoon River Valley Trail?
Put it all together and you have the BACooN RIDE starting and ending in Waukee. Enjoy a 71-mile on the scenic Raccoon River Valley Trail featuring bacon specialty foods along the way.
This event supports the Iowa Bicycle Coalition.
The Bacoon Ride is a highly anticipated annual bike ride that winds through several central Iowa towns along the Raccoon River Valley Trail. The name itself is a clever play on words that combines “bacon” (a beloved food in Iowa) and “Raccoon” (the trail’s namesake).
During the ride, cyclists stop at each town to indulge in bacon-themed food and drinks, making for a delicious and enjoyable experience. Additionally, the event supports local charities, making it both fun and philanthropic.
The Bacoon Ride has gained immense popularity over the years and attracts participants from all over the country. When you register for the ride, you’ll receive a range of perks, including numerous bacon stops featuring delicious bacon snacks and samples throughout the day, a commemorative PassPORK (a punch card for your bacon treats!), a custom Bacoon Ride t-shirt, and a commemorative Bacoon Ride coozie.
Join the fun and experience the excitement of the Bacoon Ride – sign up today!
