Dust off the pedals, it’s times for the 13th Annual Moonlight Classic on July 13th, 2024.

Join your friends and family while safely riding your bike through the streets of Des Moines taking in the captivating sights of downtown, the Iowa State Capitol and the river at night. Ride at night to shine light on children’s mental health and help raise awareness and funds for Orchard Place services!
