We had 66 riders enjoy a beautiful day for a tailwind ride with west winds at 8 to 10mph, sun shining brightly and temps in the 60s. We left Webster, Iowa on our journey back to Ben Butterworth Parkway. Our route took us through Wellman, Kalona, Riverside, Lone Tree, Muscatine, Montpelier, Buffalo, Davenport, Rock Island and finally Moline. We had a few minor detours on the way, one in Riverside due to construction, others were in the Quad-Cities due to flooding. We enjoyed lunch on the Muscatine riverfront; a big thanks to Janette Harrington for getting the buses and all the food and drinks for lunch and to Becky Luth for helping at the SAG. We greatly appreciate you ladies. Thanks to John Harrington for helping setting up the SAG and Kevin Smith for checking everyone in at Ben Butterworth. As usual Dave Thompson picked a great route and spent his Friday marking it for us. Many thanks. Joe Jamison again this year he provided us with a storage trailer at Ben Butterworth for the bags and blankets. Thanks Joe.

Please join us for the Fall Tailwind on Saturday, October 6th.
