Ride and Seek Replaces Ride the River 2021
River Action Program Manager Noah Truesdell says because of the pandemic the annual Father's Day bike ride, Ride the River, was scaled back to last year promote social distancing, and called Ride and Seek. It'll be held again in June. Participants have the entire month to solve all the clues, and qualify for prizes.
"Some historical markers or buildings and stuff like that will be either locations that you need to find in order to solve the clue or what you end up looking for. Also some environmental projects that have gone on around here."
Whether it's Ride and Seek or Ride the River, he says the goal is the same - to bring people to the Quad Cities riverfront, and to improve access to the riverfront.
Ride the River began in 1985 and in recent years attracted 600 people, while last year's Ride and Seek had 300 registrations. Sign up at the River Action website (riveraction.org).
