DES MOINES, Iowa — The bicycle community is getting larger and younger in Des Moines thanks to a community partnership that is focused on giving back to the kids.

“It’s called bike back to school and we hope kids learn healthy habits like biking to and across the city and navigating the city through active transportation,” said Bobby Kennedy, the operations manager at the Des Moines Street Collective.

A large crowd gathered inside Pioneer Columbus Community rec center for the annual Bike Back to School event on Saturday. The high heat moved the event inside but was originally scheduled for outdoors at Stone Park where the recreation center is located.
