Fall Tailwind Century

Come join us for our 2019 Fall Tailwind Century Ride which will be held Saturday, October 5th. We'll start to load bikes at 6:30 am at The Bend. The address is 111 Bend Boulevard, East Moline, IL 61244. We will leave at 7 a.m. for our starting destination. Please bring a blanket to protect your bike during transportation. There will be one bus, with a limit of about 45 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. The entry fee is $35. There will be a basic sag stop about 50 to 60 miles into the ride, with water, Gatorade, sub sandwiches and other goodies. Every route has plenty of small towns with services along the way if you need a full lunch. You can register through the QCBC website qcbc.org. Registration will be open August 10th through September 29th at midnight. Hope to see you there.
