Don't forget! Sunday Sept 16th is the day when WE CAN HELP PAVE ther gravel crossings on the Raccoon River Valley Trail.

As many of you have read the this article on Bike Iowa already, the Raccoon River Valley Trail is in need of paved crossings in Dallas County. The gravel crossings are dangerous and hard on road bike tires.

Each of the 13 crossings is $2400 to pave, but we have come up with a great way for us to get AT LEAST 2 more of them done!

Sunday September 16th we will be hosting a Safety Ride starting at Mickey's Irish Pub in Waukee at 10 AM with $25 registration cocktails and breakfast burritos. Riders will receive a high visibility vest with registration while supplies last. Then we will be heading up the new north loop to Dallas Center to the Longest Yard (formerly The Harvest Moon) where new owners Tiffany and Brian have agreed to be our gracious hosts. Have some drinks, and take your time returning to Mickey's.

If we get just 160 riders, BAM....we paved one crossing!

At 2:00 PM the after party begins back at Mickey's in Waukee with live music provided by IRA GRACE AND THE BIBLE BELT PROFITS! will give all proceed to the Cause for all Trails shirts sold over the weekend!
We will be bring more colors and sizes!


The main event begins where we draw a winner for our New Belgium Cruiser Bike Raffle! Only 100 tickets will be sold, for $25 each.

If all 100 are sold we have paid for ONE MORE TRAIL CROSSING TO BE PAVED!

1 Day, 2 crossings paved, and a good time was had by all!!
