In the words of Carl Voss, the goal of the Des Moines Bicycle Collective is "to put more butts on bikes!". Carl informed the Waukee Rotary of several programs that are offered such as the Bicycle Rodeo and the Earn-A-Bike program. The Collective also has volunteer opportunities for people who aren't active bike riders. In addition, he shared with us about bike month in May, and we can't wait to be involved in the festivities!

Kathy Fahy offered great insight into the success of Rollin' With Rotary. This road trip is an excellent way to do random acts of kindness, and to spread the word about Rotary across the nation. It was also mentioned that stopping in Des Moines for the next Rollin' With Rotary trip is being considered. Thank you Kathy for speaking with us!
