Weekly Club Rides

Join club members Sunday afternoons for weekly rides. 

Rides start from the Shell station on the east end of Fulton, unless otherwise noted. We will leave at 1:00 P.M. and ride 30 - 35 miles.   We will not leave anyone stranded, as we usually make stops during the ride to keep everyone somewhat together. We are not racers just riders who have fun riding our bicycles together. In case of rain or inclement weather the ride is cancelled.

Routes for weekly club rides vary from riding on the Great River Trail to exploring scenic, low-traffic country roads in Illinois.  Destinations in Illinois include Savanna, Morrison, Erie and Cordova.   

Icicle Bicycle

Start the cycling season off with the Clinton area RiverBend Bicycle Club annual Icicle Bicycle Ride. This year’s ride is Saturday, March 23th with registration from 9:30am to noon. Registration and the ride begin at Happy Joe’s Pizza Parlor, 408 South First Street in Clinton, IA. The 28-mile route will take riders along the Clinton riverfront bike trail and over the Mississippi River via the North Bridge. In Illinois, riders will be given the option of travelling north to Thomson, IL along the Great River Trail or a more scenic route along the Mississippi River dike, past Fulton’s authentic Dutch windmill before reaching the Great River Trail.

There will be a SAG Stop at the turnaround point at Arnold’s Bike Shop in downtown Thomson, where riders can enjoy refreshments, snack and a bathroom break. Riders can also check out Thom’s Inn across the street, where you can purchase a Starbucks coffee or an adult beverage.

Upon returning to Happy Joe’s in Clinton, you will be provided with a delicious buffet lunch, get a chance to visit with fellow riders and perhaps win one of the awesome door prizes!!

Early registration fee is $20 before March 9th. Registration fee from March 10th – March 23th is $25. The best part...100% of the profits goes to the RiverBend Bicycle Club’s Scholarship Fund!! Checks & cash ONLY will be happily accepted the day of the ride.
