2020 Moonlight Classic - Event Overview

Ride Your Ride Your Way
Want to ride 5 miles? Go for it! Want to ride 50? Whoo-hoo - cue the cowbells! Want to ride 10 miles each day? We will be with you (in spirit), cheering you on! This year is all about you and what you want to do! We will be announcing some ride challenges, contests, and scavenger hunts for registered riders leading up to Moonlight Classic Week as well!

Can participants still ride at night?
While we all love the ability to ride at night as part of the Moonlight Classic, we can only provide the safety to do so thanks to the Des Moines Police Department. We cannot provide this service virtually, so we are asking riders to ride at a time of day that they are comfortable. (And remember, if you choose to ride at night, make sure to use a headlight and reflective gear to stay safe!)

Live in Des Moines or outside of Des Moines - it doesn't matter, ride where you roam! We would LOVE to have a participate riding virtually in all 99 Iowa counties and all 50 states in support of youth mental health!

What about event t-shirts and swag bags?
In true COVID-19 outbreak fashion, we will be doing a drive-thru t-shirt, and swag bag pick up! We are partnering with Bike World to host a pick-up night. For those who wish to have their items shipped, we are asking for a small fee to help with shipping charges so that more of your registration fee can go directly to our kids. More information will be available when you register. As for swag bag goodies, you can look forward to some fun swag items and promotions from some of our incredible event partners!

What about my awesome bike costume that I've been planning all year?
Never fear: we will still be hosting our traditional contests this year, including Light Your Bike, Best Helmet Lights, and Best Costume, with a few new ones thrown in as well! Watch for more details on how to submit your entry leading up to Moonlight Classic Week for those who register.
