Saturday’s sunny weather brings big turnout for Baccoon Ride.

Thousands of bicyclists rolled into Perry Saturday as they made their way along the Raccoon River Valley Trail in the seventh annual Baccoon Ride, a celebration of Iowa’s leading livestock commodity.

The Perry Police and Street departments posted signs and closed streets in a portion of downtown Perry for the sake of the safety and orderly transportation of the bikers, who began arriving about 8 a.m. and continued passing through until shortly after noon.

The 72-mile trek started and ended in Waukee, with pork stops in Dallas Center, Minburn, Perry, Dawson, Jamaica, Herndon, Yale, Panora, Linden, Redfield and Adel. Each town offered the cyclists bacon-themed food and drinks.
