Thanks to Boy Scout Troop 182 from Ankeny for Helping to Keep BACooN Riders Safe

A BIG THANKS to Boy Scout Troop 182 from Ankeny for helping to keep BACooN Riders safe along the Raccoon River Valley Trail!  There are approximately 50 crossings where the trail crosses a roadway during the ride.  There will be law enforcement assisting riders at the high traffic intersections and the scouts will assist at the lower traffic, mainly gravel road crossings.  A scout and an adult will be at each of these crossings.  You will see them in their bright orange BACooN PATROL t-shirts.  Some of these scouts at the more remote crossings will be selling water and Gatorade as a fundraiser to help pay for camp and other scout needs.  They will sell water for $1.00 and Gatorade for $2.00.

The BACooN RIDE organizers will also make a donation to Boy Scout Troop 182 from helping make the ride safe!  THANKS AGAIN!

BACooN RIDE Spotlight: Dawson

Dawson-Depot-Popular-Stop-AllDay-Long

[ALERT: AWARD-WINNING BACON!] The Des Moines Bacon & Meat Company welcomes you to Dawson (mile 46). Feel free to give your legs a rest, sample their award-winning craft bacon (bacon judges say it’s the best) and hit up Farmer Bob for an ice cold refreshment.  If your well-greased engine needs a little more fire power, try the Whiskey BBQ Glazed Bacon on stick or grab a tasty Pulled Pork Slider (cheer “OHHHH, BACON!” and they’ll put a few slices on top). There will be some great tunes kickin’ by DJ Geno Romeo with team Body by Bergman….so, come to get your BACooN on & stick around for a bit and take in the Dawson vibe.
