Headquarters are at Scott Community College, 500 Belmont Road, Bettendorf, Iowa 52722. Riders can start from the college for a 106 mile ride or from Goose Lake, Iowa for 69 miles). The ride ends at Clarke University in Dubuque, Iowa. On Sunday we return using a different route to Bettendorf (90 miles) or to Goose Lake (50 miles). The route is varied and scenic, using lightly traveled paved roads. There are many views of the Mississippi River as we ride along it, over it on bridges, and through it on causeways in Iowa and in Illinois. The route is hilly near Dubuque, with 6,000 feet of climbing on Saturday and 4,000 feet on Sunday

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 College, the legendary TOMRV banquet is waiting for you. Clarke University opens their dormitories for our overnight stay. There is also a tenting option.

This is TOMRV, a tradition of good riding, good scenery, challenging hills, good food, and an overall good time. So if this is for you, then plan to ride with us this year. For more information and to register go to: www.qcbc.org/tomrv.
