Event Details

On May 11, 2013 The Move Project is hosting their first signature event, The Water Ride. Join us in riding for a cause, and help raise awareness and funds to provide clean water to a community in Africa (the specific community will be determined this Spring, and geolocation will be used to pinpoint the location of the well).

By signing up for this ride throughout Greater Des Moines, you are making a significant difference in the lives of people who currently lack access to clean water. Our goal is to raise $50,000 to build a well and trench water lines to communal locations within a community.

Think about it - you get to reach a personal goal, ride with friends, meet new people, enjoy great food and at the same provide new opportunities for our neighbors across the Atlantic.

Sign up today and we’ll send you more information about the event and how you’re making a tremendous impact. Prices go up to $100 on May 3rd ($50 for students).

The three route options can be viewed here:

In consideration for allowing my participation in The Water Ride, I freely agree to and make the following contractual statements and agreements. 

Risks of Bicycling: I fully realize and appreciate the dangers of riding a bicycle on open public roads and fully assume the risks associated with this activity including, by way of example but not limitation, the dangers of collision with pedestrians, vehicles, other cyclists, and fixed or moving objects; the dangers arising from surface hazards, pot holes, broken roads, equipment failure, inadequate safety equipment, and weather conditions; and the possibility of serious physical and/or mental trauma or injury associated with bicycle related mishaps. I understand that potentially dangerous situations may arise during the event which are beyond the control of The Move Project. Knowing these risks involved, I nevertheless agree to assume those risks and to release all the persons or entities mentioned below for any injury, death, illness or property damages occurred on these tours or in the travel to and from these tours.

Responsibilities of Bicyclist: I attest I will be riding at my own risk and release the aforementioned entities from liabilities for any injury, death, damages which may occur to me or anyone else.

The Move Project may change or cancel tours (with refunds) for various reasons.
