Anyone near the Quad Cities want to get together for a group ride? I will be in Rock Island in June (5th-7th). I grew up in the area but I've never had my bike with me when I go back. Most of my mornings are available for a good 2-3hr ride. I was thinking of riding to Muscatine on 92 but I don't know if that's even a good route. I'm also accepting route suggestions if nobody wants to ride with a stranger from the interweb. :D

This may be do-able for me. I gots family in the QCs and could go up and see them and maybe go out for a quick spin. Keep me posted on your travel plans.

PS I m only about 50 min away from the QCs

Burlington it is! Or you could have just looked at my FB profile...........:p
I ve ridden that highway into Musctine from the south, its a pretty car free route that direction. I cant speak of going S out of Dport however. My best guess would be heavy traffic in spots.

i have an old singlespeed conversion rockhopper at my parents house. not sure i will even get time away to ride that. i usually get to ride it in teh morning and get donuts. funny how long it takes me to do that...
but this weekend we are staying at the inlaws place. the only bikes there are The Wife and her sisters old columbia crusiers. banana seat and butterfly handlebars. i have rotated the handlebars pretty far foreward. i always pump up the rotted tires and ride around all "big pimpin" style. i do this so they leave me alone.

i do hope to catch some of the criterium.

That would be a sucker bet to spank a new guy or gal. Old and current riders that race 24+ Here's 20K tt results

The conditions were perfect Sunday for a potential course record. And we got one!! With a time of 29:21.84 and a speed of 25.39 mph, Debbie Dust, of the PACT/Dish Network team, from Chicago, blistered Diane Roanhaus', of Rock Valley Oil, from Franklin, WI, previous best time from 2007 by 1 minute and 8.06 seconds. Very nice ride Debbie! The men's winner for the '09 edition of the 20K, a new force in time trials from Muscatine, IA and the Harper's/Melon City team was Chad Bishop with our second time under 26 minutes. His time of 25:55.53 and a speed of 28.76 mph is second over all to Bryce Mead, of Jelly Belly, and Sterling, IL, in 2008 to a time of 25:18.42 and a speed of 29.47 mph. Our women's QCBC winner was Laurel Darren, Moline, IL for her first ever bicycle time trial with a winning time of 36:59.08 and a speed of 20.16 mph. Awesome job from one of the QC area's premier female marathon and ultra distance runners, who by the way is training for her first ever-full Ironman later this summer, Good Luck Laurel! The men's winner, the current Quad Cities Bicycle Club President, John Harrington won with a winning time of 30:32.19 and a speed of 24.14 mph, who rode a great ride, and then decided to take advantage of the great weather and some company from the DICE Team, and rode home to Bettendorf, IA from the Barstow course. With the results below, we try to do the best we can but sometimes there are mistakes, and if there are any, I apologize. If one was made with your results, please e-mail me offline and let me know what needs to be changed and I will make the changes. Also, if you should have received a medal, or received the wrong one, please let me know and I will get you a new plate if you have a medal or a new medal and plate if you didn't receive one.

That's what I thought might be the case. 16-18 is not fast-paced.
