The Bacoon Ride will be rescheduled to August 1, 2020. At this time the Governor’s Office does not permit us to hold an event of this size. The safety of the participants, volunteers, and staff is our number one priority. After a discussion with stakeholders in this event, we decided it would be better to reschedule the event.
We appreciate your patients during this unprecedented time. The Iowa Bicycle Coalition’s primary function as a nonprofit is to advocate for better bicycling in Iowa. Events like the Bacoon Ride have placed us in a position to continue to work on our primary mission. Our team is still working on better bike laws, educating kids on safe bicycling, and pushing for better policies and funding.
We understand the rescheduled date may not work for everyone. We’ve extended our deadlines for registration and refunds if necessary. If you are continuing to participate in the August 1 Bacoon Ride, you do not need to take additional action.
Thank you for your patience and encouragement.
