Tour de Gate October 2nd 4:00 - 5:30 PM


Tour de Gate


Join us for a leisurely ride on the MRT past the Kensington street gate.  Ride Starts in Riverdale at the parking lot at the intersection of Highway 67 and South Bellingham Street parking lot.  
.

 Come show your support to open the gate that connects South Kensington Street to the Mississippi River Trail.  Take a 1.9-mile loop around Riverdale with the Quad Cities Bicycle Club.  This event is designed to ride, walk, or run at your own pace anytime during the posted tour times.  You do not need to be a QCBC member to participate.  Encourage your friends to join in. 

Talk to the frontline advocates to discuss your concerns about the closed trail connector. Invite your friends to see firsthand the “gate” that has caused so much commotion. Then enjoy fun and conversation at “My Place”, Riverdale’s neighborhood pub following your ride or walk.

 A donation of $10 or more at the start of the event will get you a chance to win a raffle basket containing a 2020 Tour de Brew QC Jersey, TOMRV T-shirt, Water Bottle, and $50 Healthy Habits Gift Card.  All donations will be used to pay ongoing legal expenses to open the gate.  The first 50 participants to donate will be able to choose an item from the "Swag Bag".

Note- This is NOT a Critical Mass event and our route does not include South Kensington Street. We will be respectful of all Riverdale residents and businesses.  Volunteers will be on hand to help you navigate the route.

Remember we will all meet at the My Place pub for the drawing of the door prize and to socialize.
