The Best Bars You Can Bike To in the Quad Cities
Warmer weather means breaking the bikes out of the ol' garage, pumping up those tires, and hitting the trails!
But instead of going on the same ride, switch things up by bike bar-hopping (a favorite QC past time of mine). Trust me, nothing is more rewarding than working off your dinner before you've even eaten it.
These are the best bars to bike to in the Quad Cities.
Or you could always be like my boyfriend and I and BYOB!
Front Street's Tap House is located right off of the bike path in downtown Davenport. With great views of the Mississippi and great beer, you can't go wrong!
The Tap House itself doesn't serve food, but if you work up an appetite on your ride, the Fresh Deli is right next door and is more than happy to bring your food down to you.
Located on Harrison Street in Davenport, Van's Pizza, Pub & Grill is the perfect hot-spot to stop at while you're biking the Duck Creek Trail.
Van's is always posting about food and drink specials so make sure you stop by their Facebook page before you start your ride!
Rock Island is filled with bike-friendly roads, making it a perfect city to take a break. Gunchies offers your typical American cuisine - chicken strips, pork tenderloin sandwiches, cheese fries, and pizza!
Also serving as a bar, Gunchies will be sure to quench your thirst.
Located on the Mississippi in Davenport, Dee's Catfish Cove's claim to fame is great drinks, people and fun!4815 S Concord St
Locally owned Eatery & Drinkatorium along the Great River Road (Rt. 84) in Rapids City, IL. Great food and fun at The Edge. We hear that their tacos are pretty delicious!
This is my personal favorite place to bike to for Sunday Funday. Not only do they have a wide selection of beers, but I think they make one of the best bloody mary's in the Quad Cities - complete with delicious garnishes!
Pub 1848 always has popcorn available also, which is never a bad thing.
I've never personally been to The Captain's Table, but it's definitely on my biking bucket list. Here's what Steven D. on Yelp! had to say about it:
Lovely atmosphere. My wife and I dined outside, where we had a nice view of the Mississippi, and some fancy little yachts. I only stepped inside for a moment, but the bar looked pretty neat. A large shark was hanging from the ceiling.
The food was good and you get what you pay for. I got the fish and chips--fresh tasting fish and lots of thick fries. Excellent.

At the Bike Rack, you can catch a game and a pizza or burger. Sit in the bar, the dining room, or out on the patio and enjoy the bike path and Duck Creek view!
