Stay Cozy Winter Biking Lily & Adams! Panniers, lights, racks, and custom fenders + hand-me-down cold weather cycling clothing + World of Bikes gift certificates = The Ultimate Outfitting to support this stellar group of 16 folks who are biking through winter for the first time.
Anyone in the area able to ride 60ish miles on Friday around 10am? Gravel. And/or saturday morning around 7am?
We just wrapped up our 2nd annual Climate Fest. We know this wouldn't be possible without all our community partners, so THANK YOU! Here are some pictures from our climate action celebration at Willow Creek Park.

Thank you to everyone that showed up to Ride 4 Youth and joined United Action for Youth, Java House Coffee Roasters, World of Bikes and supported such a great cause!! Especially the Super Star riders, like Becky Svatos, mother of our very own Austin Svatos!!

Thank you most of all to UAY for all the wonderful services you provide for the youth in our communities and thank you for letting us be a part of such an awesome event!!
Thank you World of Bikes for supporting our riders today and for being a sponsor for our event today! Your support for Local youth goes way back and we are grateful!
Did you know that you can support UAY and our 9th Annual Ride 4 Youth from anywhere in the United States? It's true! You can log miles anywhere and anytime between 9/29-10/3!

The first 200 riders who register will get a free t-shirt so sign up now before it's too late! If you are riding outside of Johnson County or in another state, we will mail your t-shirt to you!

Register here: www.ride4youth.org

We need your help recruiting riders from all 50 states! Last year's Ride 4 Youth had participants from 23 different states...we are hoping we can do even better this year! Check out our map to see which states we still need 🚲🚲🚲! Tag a biking buddy from another state to get them to support youth in our community!

A big shout out to our sponsors, United Iowa Financial, Java House Coffee Roasters, River Products Company, Hills Bank, World of Bikes, the Iverson Family and the Reinking-Geick Family!
Who is going to be our Labor Day Leader? Sign up linked in our bio along with this week's MNG route. Tyson will be our sweeper. It is a holiday and World of Bikes is closed, but a ride together at sunset is a good way to end the long weekend. As always ride leaves at 6:30pm. Lights, helmets, snacks, water and bikes 😁

Happy Rainy Friday! This year's 9th Annual Ride 4 Youth kicks off on Sunday, September 26th! Ride that same day or anytime between September 26th-October 3rd and you will be supporting local youth and families at United Action for Youth!

And since you have a week to complete the ride, you are almost guaranteed at least one sunny day! Register as a family, a student or an individual community member - it's even more fun if you invite your friends to ride along: www.ride4youth.org.

Thank you to the generosity of this year's presenting sponsor: United Iowa Financial! Thank you to our other sponsors: Java House Coffee Roasters, River Products Company, World of Bikes, the Reinking-Geick Family, the Iverson Family and Hills Bank.

All the wonderful people. When asked what makes MNG a success this is the answer. The gravel, dirt, grass surfaces are great, the sunsets are spectacular, the post-ride beers are pleasant, but nothing tops getting to know everyone no matter your background or experience level. We need a couple of those people to be lead and sweep scout on this week's MNG leaving from World of Bikes at 6:30pm. Route 🔗 in bio

!!!MNG CANCELLED FOR TONIGHT!!!

Is it going to 🌧️ or are we going to get some more Monday Night Magic and have a gorgeous Harvest 🌝 view. Looks like 50/50 as of this post. If we cancel it will be last minute or just show up and ride in the rain. Matt & Chad are leading and sweeping. Route 🔗 in bio. 6:30 pm from World of Bikes As always 🔦 🪖 for your safety.

MNG rages on. Our own Jason Mattock will be leading the charge! We’re looking for someone to sweep still. Sign up or speak up when we depart…

6:30 depart from our parking lot.

We have had good luck with the weather so far, let's hope it continues for this week's MNG. Jason will be leading us from World of Bikes at 6:30pm. He is still looking for a partner to help us stay together. Sign up to sweep on the WOB website. Y'all know the rest - you do you. Route link in bio

World of Bikes is closed for Memorial 🇺🇲 Day and you probably have the day off. The only thing better than MNG is DOUBLE MNG. Ride one or both loops. 1st loop starts at 3:00pm with no assigned leader/sweeper and will be back for our regular 6:30pm start time. 2nd loop will be led by Chad and swept by Sam. As always come prepared with what will keep you happy and safe.

New start time!! 6:30 from the parking lot!

Straight and to the point just like this road sign, that is how we like it. At the request of Ryan and the World of Bikes staff we are pushing back the start time for MNG to 6:30pm until further notice. Be ready to roll then. You know what to do - lights, helmet, water, snacks and spread the MNG vibes to all you friends/family. Blake will be leading the charge on this week's route: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/28256886 and Brian will be bringing up the rear #ridewithgps #gravelfamily #decentattitude #thanksforridingyourbike #communityovercompetition #unlearnpavement #partypace #getoutthere
