Rides and Events
Check this page often for updated listings of all types of cycling events in and around our area. Rides require, at minimum, an appropriate bike in good working order, water, and a helmet. We suggest a spare tube, energy food, maybe a little cash in case we stop, and your biggest smile! Many rides are held subject to weather. It's a good idea to confirm dates, time and any specific requirements, too. We'll see you out there — and have fun!

The Melon City Bike Club…
located in Muscatine, Iowa along the mighty Mississippi River, promotes the healthy recreational activity of bicycling. We organize cycling rides, activities and events. We organize group rides several days each week for all fitness and experience levels. Check our Events page for weekly rides.
The Club also provides an annual RAGBRAI charter service for members. When you ride with us on RAGBRAI, many of the hassles of individual participation are eliminated. We take care of bike shipping, gear transport, campsite location, and getting you and your bike to the starting point and home again. Check our RAGBRAI page for more information.
The Club is active with local charitable and community organizations and partners with other organizations throughout the year. We participate in racing events including the Melon City Criterium and we are advocates for cyclists’ rights with respect to safety, road usage, and other municipal planning efforts such as multi-use trails.
