Description

Road

Distance - Saturday from Bettendorf, Iowa to Dubuque (106 miles) Goose Lake (69 miles). On Sunday Dubuque to Bettendorf (90 miles) or to Goose Lake (50 miles)

This is the Midwest’s 41st year and the greatest two-state week-end ride. New this year you’ll see the presence of AAA, a new sponsor. We leave on Saturday from Bettendorf, Iowa (106 miles) or from Goose Lake (69 miles) and travel to Clarke University in Dubuque, Iowa  Sunday we return using a different route to Bettendorf (90 miles) or to Goose Lake (50 miles).  On return there will be some sag food and time to compare notes (maybe exaggerations) of the ride. The route is varied and scenic, using lightly traveled paved roads. There are many views of the Mississippi River as we do ride along it, over it, on bridges, and through it on causeways. The route is hilly near Dubuque, with 6,000 feet of climbing on Saturday and 4,000 feed on Sunday. Bring a friend and enjoy spectacular scenery along the Mississippi River. 

You will have top-notch support services on the tour. The Quad Cities Bicycle Club provides many rest stops on the way with free food and refreshments. Additional food is sold along the route by civic and church organizations. Upon arriving at Clarke, the legendary TOMRV banquet, music, and more is waiting for you. Clarke University opens their dormitories for our overnight stay.

This is TOMRV, a tradition of good riding, good scenery, challenging hills, good food, and an overall good time. So if this is you, then plan to ride with us this year.
