Cruisin’ with the Hogs

Rev up your engines and join the 10th Annual Cruisin’ with the Hogs motorcycle ride. Bikes will rally in two locations, Route 65 Harley Davidson in Indianola, Iowa, and Big Barn Harley Davidson in Des Moines, before they ride to the Iowa State Fairgrounds and make a grand entrance into WPX.
