SEPTEMBER 14TH: QUAD CITIES CULINARY RIDE

Culinary Ride is coming to the
Quad Cities September 14!!

culinary ride bikeWe are planning an exciting route with fun stops and delicious cuisine with the ride beginning and ending at the Davenport Freight House Local Marketplace.

Ticket price is set at $40 for early registration by September 12th and $50 (regular price) the day of the ride.

The Culinary Ride is coming to the Quad Cities featuring local farms, food and fermentation.  The full route is an easy 40 miles. There is a 10 mile option and a 15 mile option for those wishing to keep it shorter. However, we encourage everyone to do the full route to get the most enjoyment of the experience. 

Check in is from 9AM- 10AM Sunday September 14 at Quad Cities Food Hub. The ride will get started by 10 rolling through Credit Island and onto Nahant Marsh for breakfast. Next we move on to the location of the Quad City Food Forest.  We will then cross the river for a tour of Augie Acres in Rock Island. The ride hits the trail again stopping at Cycle Therapy for a short break before continuing on to Happy Hollow U Pick in East Moline.  At each stop riders will be treated to varied culinary delights. The ride returns to the QC Food Hub for a party on the patio!  

Cost is $40 per person for advance online registration. Ticket price increases to $50 on the day of event. Online registration ends Friday September 12.

The Culinary Ride’s vision is to produce intimate, community-oriented bicycle events across the country and contribute momentum to the bicycle and local food movements.

These bicycle tours feature local farms, food and the Chefs that utilize these ingredients. As we marry local food and bicycle movements riders savor food prepared fresh by local chefs, and enjoy handcrafted beverages while roaming the farms and environmental designations in the company of friends.
