This Full Moon Bike Ride Crosses The Most Stunning Bridge In Iowa
If you’re looking for a great reason to get out and experience a cool Iowa summer night, join Bike Iowa and the Des Moines Bicycle Collective on their next full moon ride across the High Trestle Trail Bridge! This is surely a unique experience you’ll be talking about for weeks.
The High Trestle Trail Bridge near Madrid, Iowa is one of the most beautiful bridges in the world.
This gorgeous bridge was designed to be reminiscent of the mine shafts that helped build up this region of the Hawkeye State.
It truly becomes a magical place after dark, when the lights all turn on and it glows blue and gold against the night sky.
Every full moon, BikeIowa and the Des Moines Bike Collective host a Full Moon Bike Ride across this beautiful bridge. You'll want to join to see it in the breathtaking moonlight!
Cyclists of all skill levels can join in on the ride. Take the 11 mile trek from the Slater Trail Head, or just a 3 mile jaunt from the Madrid Trail Head!
No matter where you join the ride, this evening pedal will be one of the best things you do this summer. Take a virtual tour of this stunning bridge in the daylight and after dark with this drone video below.
Iowa’s next High Trestle Trail Bridge Full Moon Ride is Saturday, July 28, 2018 from 7 p.m. – 10 p.m.
