HERE COMES "PEDALER'S JAMBOREE IOWA"!

As many as 1,500 to 2,000 bicyclists will be on the Raccoon River Valley Trail this Saturday & Sunday, Sept. 5 & 6, with 22 top regional bands performing for them -- and for the public -- in nearly all of our RRVT towns. Pedaler's Jamboree Iowa is presented by the same folks that for seven years have been hosting a similar bicycling & music festival on the KATY Trail in central Missouri -- where this photo of the jamboree campground was taken. Get out this weekend and join the fun on the RRVT!
