Read the latest information on Covid-19 protocols

(updated 2/07/2022)

The Board has met (on Feb. 6, 2022) and reviewed our Covid protocol. We have made the decision to resend our Covid policy. We no longer have a Covid policy at this time. We encourage you to follow CDC guidelines and your own comfort level when deciding to participate in in-person events. For convenience, we are continuing to offer our member meetings online as well as in person.


Come ride with us in 2024!

We have something for everyone. Social rides designated 15 miles round trip and under and social rides designated for over 15 miles. DMCC has 4 signatures programs as well: PHOTO (Pedal Off The Pounds, BABRAI ( Big A** Ride Across Iowa), NCIS (New Cyclists in Training) and our newest program MOR (Middle of the Road). Please see below for information on all these signature programs and how you can participate. Membership to join is $20 per person or $30 family membership (limited to those living in the same house).


Pedal off the Pounds

Pedal off the Pounds is a group for those that are newer cyclists or those that have not ridden in a long time, who would like to also lose some weight. It is a Biggest Loser type program, focused on learning good nutrition, along with bike safety and maintenance. While we focus on getting moving, eating right and hopefully losing some weight, we also have a lot of FUN!

This year's program will be the 10th year! 100s of people have lost 1000s of pounds in that time. The program meets on Monday nights from April 22nd to August 19th. We meet at various locations around the Metro to be able to ride many of our beautiful trails. We will have speakers on most Mondays to help us learn about nutrition and to help keep our bodies and our bikes in good condition. After our speakers, we ride! We will start out with a shorter distance, increasing as the weeks go by. We increase mileage weekly and offer additional longer rides on other days of the week, so toward the end of the summer, if you want to ride a Century (100 miles!) we can help you reach that goal.
