Event description

Description

Are you fast enough?

Des Moines' Original Bicycle Poker Run will thrill again with a new theme and seven new checkpoints taking participants on a tour of the city.

What will the tour be this time? More murals? Another architectural odyssey? Time will tell, and so will this page. Soon.



All proceeds from Cyclo de Mayo benefit the Joan S. Gill Memorial fund. Some of the fund is used to install and maintain the public repair stands at Ashworth Pool/Bill Riley trail head and Mullets/Meredith Trail. The rest of the fund benefits the Joan S. Gill Scholarship at Mercy College. Joan was a compassionate nurse and an avid cyclist who always had a smile. From the Mercy College scholarship offerings page:

Joan S. Gill Nursing Scholarship

Funded by the relatives and friends of Joan S. Gill, Diploma Nursing Class of 1994, this scholarship will be awarded to full- or part-time students enrolled in any nursing degree program who are non-traditional in age (older than 25) and raising a family, with a cumulative GPA of 2.7 or higher, and who may struggle with dual roles student/parent. Joan died in 2008 after serving as a mother/baby nurse upon completion of her degree at Mercy.

Ms. Gill was herself a non-traditional student, who understood the challenges of parenting and fulfilling her educational dreams. Family members wish to honor her legacy through scholarships to students in similar circumstances.
