Bicyclists interested in doing a little good while they ride can help raise money for clean water projects in Africa.

The Water Ride is set to roll on May 11th. It starts and ends at Mullet’s in downtown Des Moines.

Riders can choose between a 20, 40, or 85 mile ride.

The ride was developed by a non-profit called The Move Project. The group is working to raise $50,000 to build a well and trench water line in one African community.

Registration prices start at $25 and go up from there.
