Tour of the Mississippi River Valley

It was a great weekend to be on a bike. KPav, Karolyn and I went on the TOMRV ride this past Saturday and Sunday. For anyone who doesn't know TOMRV starts in Bettendorf, Iowa travels along the river valley and crosses into Illinois and up to Dubuque, Iowa Saturday night for 106 hilly miles. Then we got up Sunday and did the return trip on the Iowa side for about 89 more fun filled miles. We lucked out and missed the rain and had a great time meeting tons of other bikers and enjoying the great scenery. By the time you get back to Bettendorf you have climbed and very quickly descended a lot of hills. We were flying down some so fast I was glad I didn't have anything on my bike to tell me how fast I was going.

I also have to say our pink kits and pink bikes were quite a hit. We had people constantly complimenting us on the sweet pink colors!!

Yes the butt was majorly sore along with my legs Sunday night, but I for one am ready to do it again next year. It's a beautiful ride with great sag support, good food and plenty of interesting people to talk to.

Thurs Night Wine Ride

Thurs night is our 3rd Wine Ride of the season!! The weather is looking fantastic so come on out and ride with us! Plan on meeting at the Jasper Winery on George Flagg at 5:30. From there we will ride out the Great Western Trail to Cumming (approx 8 miles). We'll stop at the Cumming Tap for some tacos and drinks and then ride back to the Winery where we can enjoy music from their Summer Concert Series. Should be a good time!

If you are planning ahead, the next Steak Ride is Wed. June 10th. Meet at The Rendezvous in Adel (park in back of the building) at 5:45. From there, we'll ride out on the trail to Redfield and back (approx. 20 miles). Afterwards, we'll enjoy grill-your-own steaks and cold beverages. Bring cash because last time I checked The Rendevous didn't take plastic! It's really a lot of fun and will be a great chance to get better acquainted!
