Big Brothers, Big Sisters of Northeast Iowa will be hosting their 6th Annual  "Spooks, Spokes, Sneakers & Cycles" Saturday, October 8th. Bring the entire family and take part in the Halloween bike ride, powder fun run, and motorcycle poker run!

Bike riders will trick-or-treat while runners/walkers get powdered along the Cedar Valley trail system. New this year--motorcyclists will hit the roads of Black Hawk & Bremer Counties on a poker run to The Screaming Eagle (Waterloo), Wild Hare (Cedar Falls, free breakfast!) & Dirty Dog (Waverly). All runners/walkers, bikers and cyclists will then join fellow participants for food, fun, and music at Gateway Park in Cedar Falls.
