SUPPORTING DES MOINES TRAILS
The funds raised by this event will go to funding Fix-It Stations along our trails!
Fix-It Stations provide an increased and enhanced level of service to our trail users and support transportation and mobility options and outdoor recreation. Flat tires and loose fasteners are bound to happen when using a bicycle. With the availability of appropriate tools and knowledge, bicyclists can use the city's growing number of bicycle maintenance stations to help maintain their bicycle when utilizing the Des Moines trail system.
