Orchard Place Moonlight Classic - July 16, 2022
Bike at night to bring light to children's mental health needs
Cruise the streets of downtown Des Moines and nearby trails with family and friends while raising awareness for children's mental health and much-needed funds for programs at Orchard Place. This one-of-a-kind nighttime bike ride takes you by spectacular downtown landmarks including the Iowa Capitol, East Village, Mary & John Pappajohn Sculpture Park, and Gray's Lake.
There are several different food and drink options at the Iowa Taproom. Arrive at 7:30 to enter in the contests or register onsite. Join us at 8:30pm for the festivities and to prepare to head out on the ride at 9:30pm. Note: In keeping with Iowa law, you do have to be 21 to be in a bar after 9 p.m.
