About the event

Cycling is also about building powerful connections and strong communities. 

We beleive that there is nothing that can replace the physical contact of human beings. 

Not even artificial intelligence or virtual reality.

We have chosen Des Moines on the RAGBRAI route to meet and greet  because WE LOVE DES MOINES !

Cyrille Vincent will be screening the trailer concept of WHIRLWIND, his upcoming documentary film exploring the life and time of Marshall Major Taylor who is considered to be perhaps the greatest cyclist of all time.

Cyrille argue that, more than sports, Major Taylor story's is a tale of  hope, love and resilience.

The filmmaker will be signing collectible film Posters of WHIRLWIND and others items such as your jersey or shirt. (With your permission of course)
