Now is the time to make plans to join Deb and Dean Mathias on the hills with others for the 2015 QCBC Fall Foliage Ride in Mt. Horeb, Wisconsin, on October 10th and 11th. The ride starts at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, October 10th from the Military Ridge Bike Trail parking lot and will be 50 to 60 miles. The ride starts at 8:00 a.m. on Sunday from the same location and will be 40 to 50 miles. The Mathias' will drive to Mt. Horeb on Friday, October 9th.

With a bike rack in place and showers and lockers ready for use, Cobham Mission Systems realized it already had laid the infrastructure for a bike-friendly work atmosphere at its Davenport facility.

That's when Tom Donahoe, a project engineer and volunteer bike coordinator for the aerospace and defense company made it his M.O. to encourage colleagues to pedal to and from work.

To launch his efforts, Donahoe, a member of the Quad-Cities Bicycle Club who has commuted to and from work every day for the last 3 years, heavily promoted League of American Bicyclists' National Bike to Work Week in May.
