Wednesday Night Dinner Rides

Now - October 2023 | Southeast Iowa

If you're looking for great exercise, good food & drinks, and time with friends, join the weekly Bike Burlington Wednesday Night Dinner Rides! A fun & causal, after-work bike ride, people meet at Bickel's around 5p.m. to ride their bicycles to a chosen destination town (including Ft. Madison, Yarmouth, Wapello & Mt. Pleasant), eat dinner, and then take a bus ride back home together around 9p.m. Some rides are also Out n' Back trips where people meet at a local restaurant here in Burlington, bike out from that location for a shorter ride, and then return to eat. Ride schedules are communicated weekly!
