Attention Pigtails Ride participants! We want to ensure that everyone has a smooth and stress-free experience at the event, so we’re excited to provide you with some important information about packet pickup and parking.

Packet pickup will be held from 5 PM to 7 PM on Friday, May 20th, at Town Square Park near the Ankeny Kirkendall Public Library, located at the corner of Main Street and SW Park Square Drive in Ankeny. This is a great opportunity to get your rider packet and swag ahead of time, so you can hit the trail early on Saturday morning.

If you’re unable to make it to packet pickup on Friday, don’t worry – we’ll also be offering packet pickup from 7:30 AM to 9 AM on Saturday, May 21st, at the same location. Please plan to arrive early enough to pick up your packet and get ready for the ride. And don’t forget to bring your wristband, which is your proof of registration, and includes four tear-off tabs for food and photos.

We highly discourage riders from parking in the Prairie Trail lots and ask that you park at DMACC instead. We have ample parking available for riders at Lot J and N on the DMACC campus, which is south of the Prairie Trail District. To ensure that you find the parking lot easily, we will have signs directing you to Lot J and N. Please make sure to follow the signs and park in the designated area to avoid any confusion or delays.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding as we work to make this event a success. We appreciate your efforts to help us maintain a smooth and efficient packet pickup and parking situation for all participants. We look forward to seeing you at the Pigtails Ride and wish you a safe and enjoyable journey on the trail!
