Everyone is welcome!
Ride at your own pace and enjoy the beautiful Raccoon River Valley Trail in the heart of Iowa. Beginning in the Des Moines area, we’ll travel along the trail all the way to Jefferson, Iowa. Bike World, our sponsoring bike shop will have your bags and camping gear waiting for you.
Once you set up camp , you can head downtown to Jefferson’s Bell Tower Festival and join in on some of the festivities, some of which include, a parade or a car show, or maybe pop into the Green County Historical Museum or take in a play at the History Boy Theater!
Back at camp, a scrumptious dinner will be provided, catered by the famous Hotel Pattee! We promise it will satisfy your hunger from that 55 mile bike ride!
During the evening you can choose to relax in camp around a cozy campfire, or head back downtown to hear ‘PopRocks’ in concert.
Sunday morning we’ll have some hot coffee and a light breakfast to get you going. We head back to Des Moines via the ‘other side’ of the trail to complete the loop. Bike World will have your bags brought back to where we started.
*Back by popular demand.... THE Scavenger Hunt!* before the ride, you will get a list of items and photos to collect along the way, each with its own point value. Saturday after dinner, we’ll gather together to find the winner. Guaranteed hilarity and laughter will ensue! Did we mention that this is for honest-to-goodness prizes?!
Registration includes: Transporting gear, camping, hot showers, full evening meal, continental breakfast and a cool bandana.
