Our "Winter" Chowder Ride ended up being more of a "Spring" Chowder Ride, but nevertheless, Bondurant's 1st Annual Chowder Ride was a HUGE success! Over 225 cyclists came out to enjoy a nice, easy ride down the Chichaqua Valley Trail and help raise over $600 for the Friends of Chichaqua Valley Trail. After the ride, many riders partook in delicious chowder from Founder's Irish Pub and got to vote in a Chili Cook-Off at Reclaimed Rails Brewing Company. A big thanks goes out to both Founder's and Reclaimed Rails for opening up their doors to help make this event such a success. Another big thanks goes out to Jeff Cook and the Friends of Chichaqua Valley Trail for helping set up this event and for all they've done to keep Chichaqua Valley one of the nicest trails in the state! Another BIG thanks goes out to Bondurant City Administrator, Mark Arentsen for coming up with the great idea of the Chowder Ride in the first place! None of this would have been possible without his vision! Finally, thanks to everyone who came out and enjoyed the ride and food. With your generous donations, Chichaqua Valley Trail will continue to be one of the best bike trails in Iowa! Hope to see everyone again next February!
