Tailwind Century

Ride like the wind. It's fun and very rewarding to ride 100 miles with the wind at your back. A bus will take the riders out 100 miles and we will ride back to the Quad Cities.

We currently offer 2 tailwind rides, one in the Spring and one in the Fall.

2018 Spring Tailwind Century
Saturday May 5, 2018

Come join us for the Spring Tailwind Ride and start your 2018 by riding a Century. It will be held Saturday, May 5th. Registration for this ride will be open from March 1 until April 30 through Get Me Registered. The entry fee is $35.

We'll start to load bikes at Ben Butterworth Parkway (5466 Old River Drive) at 6:30 a.m. and leave at 7 a.m. for our starting destination. Please bring a blanket to protect your bike during transportation to our starting point. There will be two buses, with a limit of about 90 people. The drive normally takes about two hours. Once there, we'll unload the bikes and send you on your way after handing out cue sheets. We will have a secure area (probably a locked trailer) for any gear you don't want to haul back on your bike. There will be a basic sag stop about 50 to 60 miles into the ride.
