Bike Tour from QC to Southwest Wisconsin
The Quad Cities will be the starting point this fall for a new interstate bike tour. It's called the "Will B. Rolling to Ben Bikin" tour, and it will start in Port Byron and travel 220 miles to Sparta, in southwest Wisconsin.
Port Byron Mayor Kevin Klute says local bike organizations are on board for the tour, but some details still have to be worked out.
Klute says their goal is to connect Port Byron, on the Great River bike trail, with Sparta that's known as the "Bike Capital of America."
The tour will last six days with about 10 hours of riding each day.
The inaugural "Will B. Rolling to Ben Bikin" tour is set for October 4th.
