Over 100 riders came out to enjoy the great weather and roads around the city of Geneseo for the 2018 Heartland Tour. The Tour had great attendance, with ridership up 50% over last year. Riders of all ages taking on 25, 50, 75, and 100 mile routes for the day, a few riding past the quitting time just to get that last loop for their century. A tip of the hat to those that refused to quit!

The weather, support staff, road routing, lunch provided by Geneseo Brewing Co, and music provided by Corey Wallace all led to a day enjoyed by all.

Dave and Melinda Thompson, Walt Dethlefs, Les and Robyn Nepper, Jason Kratz, the Crew at the Geneseo Brew Co. all put a lot of effort into the event and made a memorable day for all attending. Give them a thanks when you next see them.

Next year is planned for September 14, 2019, anyone with ideas for improvement or time to volunteer, please contact Quad City Bike Club and we will make use of you!
