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 $30 for early registration by August 31 and $40 regular price beginning September 1.

The mission of the Culinary Ride is to engender greater appreciation for local agrarian economies and encourage people to choose bicycling as their primary form of transportation. We believe that if local farmers and those businesses that support them succeed, our communities will be vibrant and healthy. We hope to link community members and local businesses with local food suppliers. The most fun way to do this, in our opinion, is by bicycle. 

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.​

A portion of the proceeds benefit local organizations dedicated to ensuring communities enjoy a nutritious helping of fresh food and a connection to the natural world.
