42nd Year Of TOMROV - Day 1

TOMRV is the Tour of the Mississippi River Valley, a Midwest cycling tradition now in its 42nd year. Every year more than 1,000 bicycling enthusiasts come to ride the TOMRV tour. They enjoy a challenging ride on scenic roads, through Midwest farmland, and along the Mississippi River.

We leave on Saturday June 8, 2019 from Bettendorf, Iowa (106 miles) or from Goose Lake, Iowa (75 miles), and travel to Clarke University in Dubuque, Iowa. The next day we return using a different route to Bettendorf (90 miles) or to Goose Lake (50 miles). The route is varied and scenic, using lightly traveled paved roads. There are many views of the Mississippi River as we ride along it, over it on bridges, and through it on causeways. The route is hilly near Dubuque, with 6,000 feet of climbing on Saturday and 4,000 feet on Sunday
