    Get yourself and your bike decked out head-to-toe and compete for a chance to win great prizes in the "Light Your Bike", "Best Helmet Lights", and "Best Costume" contests.
    Grab a team from your company, organization, club, family, or friends and compete for the Moonlight Cup. The team with the most registered riders will get to keep this trophy from year to year.

    This event is heavily dependent on volunteer participation. If you don't feel like taking your bike out for a tour of downtown Des Moines at night, then sign-up online to be a volunteer and get an event shirt for helping out.
