2021 Pedal for a Moment
Saturday, September 18 2021
(fundraising ends September 30th)
Welcome to MS Moment’s 1st Annual Bike Ride - Pedal for a Moment!!! We are excited to partner with SCHEELS and C.H. Robinson to bring you some fun, friendship and feel good exercise. Your day of sunshine and scenery will help Iowa families living with Multiple Sclerosis stay healthier longer so they can get out and ride their bikes too.
Get a group of friends together if you’d like and form a team. Race each other and motivate the slow pokes! Groups raising money for MS MOMENTS will earn prizes too!
The day will start at The Whistlin' Donkey in Woodward, Iowa. Join us at 9:00am for a free will donation breakfast and important information about the latest MS medications. Announcements will start at 9:45am and the ride begins at 10:00am.
The route can either be 25 or 50 miles whichever best suits your day. Making the round trip from Woodward to Ankeny and back gives you a full 50 mile ride but if 25 is more your speed than you can turn around at Slater.
You will enjoy the GORGEOUS High Trestle Trail which takes you over the river, through the woods and you might even pass Grandma’s house along the way.
You will have support stations, sag wagons and trail ambassadors available to make sure your day is safe and relaxing. Polk County Sheriff’s Department and the city of Madrid Police will have presences where the trail crosses HWY 17 and HWY 210 for added safety.
Some stops you will enjoy along the route will be Flat Tire Lounge in Madrid, The Nite Hawk in Slater, and The Firetrucker in Ankeny! Get your PASSPORT punched at each stop to earn a chance at winning an exciting prize.
You might want to mosey at your own pace and that’s ok too but be aware that support for the ride ends at 4:30pm.
Passports will be given to motivate you along your journey and to get punched at each stop
