Wednesday Night Dinner Rides

Join Bike Burlington for their Wednesday Night Dinner Rides! Great exercise, good food and drinks, this is a fun and causal, after-work bike ride with friends and family. People meet at Bickel's around 5p.m. to ride their bicycles to a chosen destination town (including Ft. Madison, Oakville, Wapello, Mt. Pleasant, and Yarmouth) and eat dinner together with a bus ride back home around 9p.m. 

It’s encouraged that people leave in time to get to the destination town before dark (so, generally that means no later than 5:30p.m). Average ride distance is ~ 25-40 miles (click HERE for long & short route maps).

If biking the full distance is a bit too much, Bike Burlington has their school bus that leaves Bickel’s at 6p.m; people are welcomed to ride the bus to a certain point in the route, finishing the rest of the distance on their bicycles. This is a great option for new cyclists and families with young children!  

Please note that some rides (especially towards the beginning and ending of the riding season) will be Out n' Back Rides. Riders meet at a local restaurant in the Burlington area, bike out from that location for a shortened ride, and then return back to eat. 

Sign-In is requested so the club knows you’re going; it also ensures you a seat on the bus ride back! (The sign-up sheet is in the front entrance of Bickel's). A $3 donation towards gas is also encouraged and much appreciated. 

Newcomers are welcome anytime! And if you find that you love the rides (as we’re sure you will!), Bike Burlington asks that you join the club so you can receive full membership benefits. Click HERE for a Bike Burlington Membership Application. 

Destination towns are communicated weekly and subject to change depending on weather and wind conditions. To verify ride plans, we welcome you to call into Bickel’s at (319) 754-4410 or watch for updates on our Facebook page! Also, when you join Bike Burlington, you can get on their email list and receive notifications this way, too!
