Valley Junction Alley Cat

November 3, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Des Moines Valley Junction Alley Cat

They are planning a FUN Ride for November 3rd, 2019. It’s an Alley Cat Ride. Is about 20 miles of paved / gravel alley ways along with Cemetery and City Parks. There is some level of skill required since the alleys are rough in some areas and the weather may make it challenging. A cyclocross bike, mountain or fat bike is preferred, although we pre-rode it using touring bikes. We are Starting at 12:00 Noon, when you are finished, we are offering a free chili supper around 3:00 PM. There will be a few “Hidden Treasure” places so you will want to download the route and use the map so you stay on course. We ask that you PLEASE stop at all intersections. Please feel free to patronize any of the bars and restaurants along the route as this is not a race. Should be very fun day. Costumes are always nice. The Chili supper is actually our annual contest. Feel free to enter a crock pot of your favorite recipe to see if you can knock off the current champion Troy Miller. Trophies will be awarded for the best 3 recipes.

Keep watching for updates and clues the the prize locations.
