*Note: The 400k will be a new route that will have many miles in common with the current 300k route, similar to how the 200k and 300k routes share the first 60 miles together.  The new 400k route is expected to have a few less hills as well! The new 600k route will use the new 400k route + the last 200k of the current 600k.  I will update the RWGPS links below when the routes have been approved.

Route Links

The following route links are the current planned routes for the events and are provided for planning purposes.  Changes may occur prior to the event date as necessary (road closures, etc.).  I (Mike) will endeavor to provide notice of any changes to the routes as they become known.

 

Event Info

Except for the Oct 13th, 2018 200k, all events start at the Quality Inn & Suites, 1000 E Iowa St, Eldridge, IA 52748, Ph: (563) 285-4600

Registration for all rides will open 1 hour before the ride start in the hotel lobby.  Registration closes 10 minutes prior to the start of the ride so I (Mike) can make pre-ride announcements and send off the main group of riders.  If you arrive within 10 minutes of the ride start you will be able to register after I set off the main group of riders.

The 600k route is a 400k loop + the 200k loop.  Therefore, you will arrive back at the start hotel after 400k so you may want to make your hotel reservation for two nights in Eldridge if you are coming from out of town.  Nearby folks may just want to book the Saturday evening.

Rendezvous Ride with Driftless Randonneurs


Oct 13,2018 - Time: 7:00 am - 8:30 pm
This 200k (ACP) ride is in collaboration with the Driftless Randonneurs in Richland Center, WI.  This ride will informally be dubbed a “Rendezvous Ride” where the concept is that riders will begin near their respective region and head toward each other, meeting at a common turnaround control point.  The turnaround control will be a venue where a meal and stories can be shared by the riders of both regions. Of course, riders will have to be mindful of the time spent at controls in order to finish within the time limit. The routes are under development and details will be available on the QCR and DR websites as the plans are solidified so stay tuned!
