Let's Move Quad Cities a social community dedicated to fitness that is sponsored by ORA Orthopedics. They feature a QC guest blogger once a month who represents groups of sports enthusiasts.

Read how Chuck Oestreich, Quad City Bike Club, grew to love cycling!

"I'm not a super athlete - never have been. Oh, I played a little high school football, but that was in a small town in Wisconsin where if you showed up you made the team. I don't have an athlete's build and have never got into major bodybuilding or fitness training. ..."

Get your headlights charged up for Thursday evening Night Rides during October. Rides will start at 6:00pm on Thursdays. The first 2 weeks, October 2nd & 9th, meet at Eastern Ave. Park on the Duck Creek Trail in Davenport. The next 2 weeks, October 16th and 23rd, meet at the large parking lot by Lindsay Park Yacht Club along the Riverfront in the Village of East Davenport. The length of these rides will vary between 15 - 25 miles and we will regroup often.

A mountain or hybrid bike is suggested for these rides. You will need a headlight and/or helmet light and a lighted, red rear reflector. Using a red light on the back of your bike will allow other riders to judge their distance from your rear wheel and hopefully not run into your bike.

The weather can vary on these rides and we will only ride when the trails are dry. If the trails are still wet and muddy due to a recent rain, we don't ride. If at all possible, wear clothing that is reflective and put reflectors and/or reflective tape on your bike. You need to be "seen" by cars as you cross streets.

We hope you will join us for all or some of these rides in October (2nd, 9th, 16th and 23rd). We are not planning on riding on October 30th due to Halloween. Riding the Duck Creek Trail or Riverfront Trail on these night rides is a whole new experience especially as the month progresses and the days get shorter.

If you have questions regarding equipment suggested for these rides, please feel free to contact Bill & Kathy at: 563-355-2564 or 563-340-2142 or by email at: kbstorm@aol.com or billstorm@aol.com. We look forward to riding with you on Thursday nights in October.
