DRAFT meetups are a nationwide series of events sponsored by PeopleForBikes, a charitable organization based in Boulder and financed by the bicycle industry.  PeopleForBikes gave a check for $10,000 to Iowa Bicycle Coalition during the Brett Michaels concert when RAGBRAI was in Mason City in 2014. PFB may be a source of funding for our future trail projects.

DRAFT meetups tap into people who love bikes, biz and beer. Recent meetups have been held in Des Moines, Duluth and Los Angeles. Upcoming meetups are scheduled for Brooklyn, NY, and Mason City.

Our event will consist of about a dozen people giving short presentations. It will give everyone to catch up on the work that is being done by the City, our commission and others in Mason City and Northern Iowa.
