Enjoy a bi-state tour of the Quad Cities along riverfront bike trails. Ride 20 miles or 60 miles; you can loop back at several places on the route. You’d be surprised how much you get out of Ride the River! Build memories, enjoy nature, learn Mississippi River history, get hooked on biking, and connect with the family. Enjoy a picnic along the river with box lunches available form Fresh Deli at the Freight House, or picnic fare that can be purchased at the Colonel Davenport House on Arsenal Island where 50 picnic blankets will be set up.

The ride begins at the Freight House at Western and River Drive in Davenport, IA. The route is open from 7am to 3:30am. Cross the river on the Celebration Belle Riverboat or the historic Arsenal Island Bridge. Please note: Arsenal Island trails are open for just registered riders of this event, and you will need a photo ID, helmet, and the Ride the River bike ID card.
