Pedal Off The Pounds

The popular Pedal Off the Pounds program is designed for new, overweight and/or out of shape riders! This program is designed to start you off slow and easy. We teach nutrition, bike etiquette, how to shift, how to change a tire and most of all...how to have FUN! You’ll be divided into teams (think Biggest Loser style) and each meeting you’ll learn, be inspired and even face a few fun team challenges! Oh…and did we mention that there are PRIZES involved?!

Meetings are every Monday evening Late April/Early May – August. Check in between 5:30–6pm and the official meeting/ride starts at 6pm. Please do not register if you cannot commit to this schedule. Your team will be counting on you to attend!

Informational meeting for POTP will be held on Thursday, March 1st at 6pm at the Johnston Public Library (Large Meeting Room), 6700 Merle Hay Road, Johnston, IA 50131.

You must be a member of the Des Moines Cycle Club before you can register for POTP. Cost of the POTP program is $50.
