Moonlight Classic

July 17 @ 2:30 am - 6:00 am

$10 – $100

2022 Moonlight Classic presented by Sammons Financial Group will raise awareness of children’s mental health and funds for Orchard Place

About this event:
Be there! 11th Anniversary of this Spectacular Night-Time Bike Ride

Imagine yourself with friends or family safely riding your bike through the streets of Des Moines at night past unique views of the lighted bridge over Grays Lake, the Iowa State Capitol and the iconic 801 Grand building. How cool would it be to do that while helping raise awareness and funds for children’s mental health?

Register now for the 2022 Moonlight Classic presented by Sammons Financial Group. This is the 11th anniversary for this fabulous night-time bike ride and our goal is to raise $130,000 for Orchard Place.

We are BACK at The Iowa Taproom: Who has the Best Bike Lights, Best Helmet Lights, and Best Costume? This is where the judging will take place. Plus, the team with the most registered riders will get awarded the coveted Moonlight Cup traveling trophy and other prizes. There are several different food and drink options at this location. Note: In keeping with Iowa law, you do have to be 21 to be in a bar after 9 p.m.

Registration: $40 (early birds)/$45 (after June 15) per rider. Those that register early will receive a free shirt.

Family Packs: $100 (early birds)/$125 (after June 15) for 2 adults and up to 4 children. These packs are a great way for kids to join in the ride and support children’s mental health.

Rider Packet Pick-up options:

Wednesday, July 13th from 3pm-6pm at Bike World, 5003 EP True Pkwy in West Des Moines

Thursday, July 14th from 4pm-7pm at the Iowa Taproom 215 E 3rd St. in Des Moines
