Start the cycling season off with the Clinton area RiverBend Bicycle Club annual Icicle Bicycle Ride. This year’s ride is Saturday, March 24th 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 14th. Registration fee from March 15th – March 24th 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.

Last Year the Tour De Brew had over 500 Riders, from 64 Cities in 6 States, and we raised over $21,000 for Local Cancer Charities!!!

This is our 5th Year, on the 5th day of the 5th month and it couldn't be more appropriate for our ride as the 5th year in Cancer recover is a major milestone. Survivors often suffer debilitating side effects from treatment, and in this nation's fight against cancer, survivors need access to resources to help them get back to living during and after treatment.

So please join us this year, to make it the BIGGEST YEAR YET!!!


After years of planning and fund raising led by the Iowa Natural Heritage Foundation, the high trestle trail grand opening was held in April 2011. This new 25 mile trail connects 5 Central Iowa communities, 4 counties and 670 miles of trails in Central Iowa. The highlight of this trail is the bridge crossing the Des Moines River on the northern reaches of the Saylorville Project. The trail bridge, a former Union Pacific railroad bridge, is one of the largest in the world at 1/2 mile in length and 13 stories tall.
