PeopleForBikes has challenged the Iowa Bicycle Coalition to recruit 10,000 bicyclists to join the PeopleForBikes movement. If that goal is reached, the Iowa Bicycle Coalition will receive a $10,000 donation.

The coalition has until July 25 to collect the 10,000 bicycle supporters online. That’s when a presentation will be made during the PeopleForBikes day of RAGBRAI in Mason City.

There is no cost to join PeopleForBikes, described as a national movement making riding better for everyone. More than 800,000 supporters have joined so far.

“We know there are many more than 10,000 bicyclists that ride RAGBRAI each year,” says Mark Wyatt, executive director of the Iowa Bicycle Coalition. “This isn’t just about the people who don spandex and ride across the state. If you ride a bike, even just to the store or trail, you should be part of this list.”
