TOMRV is the Tour Of the Mississippi River Valley, a Midwest cycling tradition since 1978. Every year 1,000 bicycling enthusiasts come to ride the TOMRV tour. They enjoy a well supported, challenging ride on scenic roads, through Midwest farmland, and along the Mississippi River. The tour includes a long route and a shorter route on both days of riding. Saturday is 106 or 69 miles and Sunday is 90 or 46 miles. All routes utilize lightly traveled paved roads.
The 2019 tour will begin the evening of June 7 with registration at packet pick-up. The center of activity will be Scott Community College (SCC) in Bettendorf Iowa. Catch-up with old friends and make new ones. Camping is available on site or stay at one of numerous hotels in the Quad City area. Saturday morning, June 8, riders will leave SCC on their journey to Clark University in Dubuque Iowa. Riders enjoy plenty of refreshments and scenery along the route and cross the Mississippi River twice. Saturday evening at Clark University, riders enjoy an outstanding dinner buffet, as well as listening to music and enjoying refreshments in the beer garden. Riders may camp on site or choose to stay in hotels in the area. Sunday morning, riders will return to SCC following a route that is different from Saturday, but just as scenic and well-supported with refreshments.
The ride is sponsored by the Quad Cities Bicycle Club (QCBC). You are invited to look into our tour whether you are an experienced tour rider or just getting started. You will find a great weekend cycling experience with riders from across the Midwest. If you belong to a cycling club anywhere in the Midwest, then you probably have friends riding with us.
