    How many are signed up for June 28th so far? Thank you

  7. Are there spaces for vendors to set up? I make custom map pendants, bicycle earrings, bracelets, et al. Would love to participate! Thanks 🙂

    If we register now, are there t-shirts still available? Where was this ride publicized? The first we heard about it was today (June 9) in My Waukee Magazine which came in the mail.

    Stupid question probably but will there be any poultry options available anywhere on the route. My wife loves to ride but does not eat bacon/pork (makes her sick to her stomach). We are registered and looking forward to it but just want to make sure there is something for her to eat that day. She’s not picky but will need some protein to get through the day. Lucky for me, I get all her bacon! Thanks and looking forward to this weekend.

      There will be other vendors along the route. The PassPORK will be pork products. Other community vendors will have items available.

  10. I see tent camping space. Is RV space also available?

    Just found this bike ride. I see we’re too late for the steel mug and t-shirt – but is it still possible to get them if we register today?

    • bacoonride

      Unfortunately, no. We sold out of stainless steel pints on May 1 and t-shirts on June 1. You still get the wristband, PassPORK, trail pass, food, and fun.

    Is the entire bike trail all concrete or asphalt?


    I lost an iPhone on the ride yesterday between Yale and Jamaica. It is in a pink and grey otter box. If found please call 515-554-2108 or email me at mnosco@prodigy.net
