There is currently an opening on the Board for Vice President. We want to thank Steve Starks for his service to the club this year and look forward to seeing him on the trails this season. If you are interested in serving as VP through the end of 2021, it's an excellent way to learn how the club operates and "try out" a Board position without committing to a 3-year term. December 2021 elections will include electing someone to fill the remaining 2 years of the VP's term.

To be considered, Willingness to Serve forms must be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5:00 PM on Friday, June 4, 2021.
DMCC members charged up their lights for a night ride to the High Trestle Bridge on Saturday, July 17. Riders started in Ankeny, Slater, or Madrid, depending on how many miles they wanted to ride. A two-mile detour on gravel roads coming out of Slater challenged riders with skinny tires. It was a beautiful, if humid, night on the Bridge. Thanks to Amy Pousson-Noonan, Mark Maness, and Steve Wittmuss for serving as organizers and hosts at the various locations.
This was the first DMCC-wide ride since the pandemic began in 2020. As COVID conditions allow, additional group rides will be scheduled through the rest of the summer and fall.
The Dream Team uses the power of a bicycle to assist youth in developing a positive approach to life’s challenges.
After one of the most unique training seasons in the program's history, the 2021 Dream Team rode the 48th edition of RAGBRAI®. A total of 25 youth riders made the trek from LeMars, IA to Clinton, IA - a total of 454.1 miles and 11,954 feet of climb. Accompanying them was a dedicated group of volunteer mentors and support crew that have supported the Dream Team throughout the season, including DMCC members.
Please consider making a gift during this year's RAGBRAI® fundraising campaign to support the Dream Team. As of the beginning of August, $10,000 out of a goal of $15,000 has been raised, so your support is still needed.
You can donate through Facebook. Facebook pays all the processing fees for you, so 100% of your donation goes directly to the Dream Team.
If you're not on Facebook, go to the Dream Team website at https://www.dreamteamdesmoines.org/donate.
Thank you to all that participated in the Let's Roll Photography Contest. You captured the spirit of cycling!
