About the Tweed Ride

"It's the proper and gentlemanly thing to do on a Saturday afternoon"

Please note that this is a revised schedule due to the recent flooding and closure of Credit Island Park

Modeled after the original "Tweed Runs" of London, our Tweed Ride is a leisurely bicycle ride along the scenic Davenport riverfront. It will launch from the Village Theater in the quaint Village of East Davenport.

Cost to ride is free but a $20 donation will provide the rider with a warm fuzzy feeling, a souvenir armband, and entitlement to the awards and prize giveaways. Furthermore, this event is a fundraiser for River Action www.riveraction.org and we appreciate the support.

All funds raised go towards offsetting our costs with the balance donated to River Action to help with River Way stewardship.

The Ride

We launch from the Village Theater at noon. "Scotland The Brave" on the pipes will be our cue mate! We will travel to Schwiebert Park on the Rock Island riverfront for a picnic lunch and live music provided by Lewis Knudsen. https://lewisknudsen.com Following Schwiebert, there will be an open "Galavanting Around The Downtown" period to explore the downtowns, support local businesses, and show off our dapper duds. The ride will return to the village at 4pm for door prizes and awards.
