Here come 2,700 bacon-eating bicyclists!

That's right -- the 4th annual "BACooN RIDE" happens Saturday on the loop of the Raccoon River Valley Trail. For the first time, the route has been reversed, and bicyclists will go counter-clockwise from Waukee. At all the stops, riders expect treats made with bacon -- some of them almost exotic -- and something cold to drink. The ride is sold out. But you're all invited to Friday night's opening party in Waukee, 5 to 11 p.m., featuring the rock band, "Fishheads."
