Comment on our Facebook discussion post if you think you might be able to make it. 2) For those without a fatbike or those who prefer to listed to people talk about biking, we invite you to join us at the Firetrucker Adventure Biking Talk. Check the Bike Iowa event for speaker bios. Jim Robidoux, founder of the new Ankeny Bike Club, will be one of the speakers.


UPDATE (Tues): It looks there aren't any takers on the ride. Did you see the forecasted snowfall totals! Keep an eye on our discussion for details.

Kyle loves mountain biking. And mountain biking is fun. So for the fall and winter, the Kyle's Bikes Wednesday Night Ride is a mountain bike ride on Sycamore Trail!


Meet us at the trail. The "north gravel lot" is off 66th Avenue, just west of the river and east of the Johnston Soccer Fields. If the gravel lot is full, you can park in the paved Neal Smith Trail lot on the east side of the river and ride the new protected bike/ped trail on the bridge.


Gather at 7:30 p.m. We will roll out at 7:45.


The pace will vary depending on who shows up. We may split into smaller groups if the group is large or there is a significant difference in paces. We vary the route a little each time, but regardless of route, we regroup at the following points:

  1. Double Track (by the gravel pit)
  2. Fish Camp (confluence of Beaver Creek and Des Moines River)
  3. Turnaround (the paved Trestle to Trestle Trail)
  4. Fish Camp
  5. Double Track


If you've not ridden at Sycamore before and are concerned about getting lost, find Katherine, Kyer, or Kyle before the ride and let them know. We can find you a buddy. :-) We don't want to lose anyone!


BRING LIGHTS. Running into things is *not* fun.


We do not ride wet trails. Nor during blizzards. Watch our Facebook page carefully for updates. Or join our Facebook group!
