answers a question as Santa Cruz Mayor Emily Reilly and Congressman Sam Farr (D-CA) look on
In Des Moines, Lorna Davros, Assistant to Mayor Frank Cownie, says "Des Moines is pleased to be included in the NBG Annual Mayors Bike Ride. The fun and enthusiasm builds each year as we eagerly await the arrival of our relay rider on the steps of City Hall. We are proud to be a part of the vision that provides great outdoor exercise while promoting health and family activities."
