It's 34th Annual  Ride the River bike adventure along the river in both Iowa and Illinois, and it's just in time for Father's Day.The weather is going to be hot, so why not get in the exercise, time with Dad and enjoy the beautiful river all while you're generating your own breeze on a bike? I figure we'll all be sweating anyway, may as well have fun and make some memories on Father's Day.

Not only is Ride the River a beautiful, scenic ride along the Mississippi River, it's an island adventure. You'll be collecting helmet stickers along the way, doing different activities at each island you stop at, and you'll score lots of free things along the way too, like backpacks and pizza.

According to, here's the quick lowdown.

The headquarters will be in Le Claire Park. The route is open from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Riders can cross the Mississippi River on the Celebration Belle Riverboat from Iowa to Illinois or ride across the historic Arsenal Bridge.
