A Typical Thursday Night
UBFM - Des Moines runs 8 routes every Thursday night, no matter the weather. When the weather is above 42°F most of our routes are run on bicycles and a couple from cars. Below that temperature, all routes are run from cars.
- Routes range from as few as 3 or 4 miles to as much as 10 or 11 miles
- Four riders needed to run a bike route
- Bikers need a bike, a helmet, lights, and something to carry food and other items in (backpack, panniers, trailer)
- Route leaders will guide you with directions
Here are photos of our volunteers out on various routes:
