It’s the middle of winter but Iowa’s bicycling enthusiasts are already thinking about the summer ahead.
The 10th annual Iowa Bicycle Summit will be held this weekend in Des Moines. Mark Wyatt, executive director of the Iowa Bicycle Coalition, says Friday is the first day of the gathering and it will feature guest speakers, an all-day workshop and breakout sessions on a host of bicycle-related topics. The other half of the weekend is the Iowa Bike Expo, a free event on Saturday featuring more than 100 exhibitors.
After the expo, there’s also the route announcement party for RAGBRAI, the Register’s Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa, on Saturday at 8 P-M.
The reception will feature live and silent auctions, door prizes and more. All activities are at the Iowa Events Center in Des Moines. Learn more at: www.iowabicyclecoalition.org
