I thought I would share some good news. I was able to assist arranging support vehicle parking. This is a bit different than the past rides in a couple of ways. We are keeping the support vehicles away from the dip site and downtown. This keeps from having a traffic snafu. The individual rider pickup will also be away from the dip site for the same reason. Riders will be directed up river on both sides of the river on the MRT and GRT. Some riders will take the MRT (Mississippi River Trail) to the parking lots next to the Isle of Capri in Bettenporf, IA. Other will cross the Mississippi and take the GRT (Great River Trail) to the i wireless Center in Moline, IL. Both routes are about 4 miles upriver. Both are very scenic. Both parking areas are adjacent to the trails. To my knowledge this is the first time riders will cross into Illinois. Both parking areas are next to I74. So there should be easy and fast access and departure to the interstate. Showers are being arranged at both site. But have not been confirmed yet. While this adds a bit of riding after your ride officially ends at the dip site. I think you will enjoy the ride along the river. I don’t think the riders have gotten to do this before. We have an excellent trail system in the area. This is a chance to show some of it off. With the elimination of traffic problems. I hope this allows you to stay a bit longer and enjoy our community and river front.
