We will setup the tents and have a campfire on Friday night. Bring your tents, sleeping bags, camp chairs, coolers of food and drinks. You will need food and drinks for Friday night, Saturday morning and Saturday night. Showers will be available for campers.

You can come out Friday night to camp and have a campfire, or come out Saturday morning to start our ride.

If you are not a camping person, you may choose to stay at Savanna's Super 8 (815) 273-2288 or the L&M Motel (815) 273- 7728 rooms are limited, all located in Savanna.

Cost is $6.00 per person to help pay for expenses (the Porta Potty, charcoal, etc.). We will have grills available to cook your food and a campfire.

Saturday morning we will take off at 8:30 as a group on a 65- mile loop ride. We will have lunch in Mt Carroll, then return to our campsite and have a cookout and campfire.

Sunday we will head out for breakfast at 8:30 on our bikes to a local restaurant and then ride a 50-mile loop back to our campsite. Tents should be dry and ready to take down to break camp.

Don't miss the fun. For information of address for the camp, and to make your reservations, contact Darlene Moritz at (563) 386-3499 (leave a message with your phone number) or email

I need to know if you are camping or staying at the Hotels in Savanna. Please let me know which hotel you will be staying at.

Now is the time to make plans to join Deb and Dean Mathias and others for the 2014 QCBC Fall Foliage Ride in Mt. Horeb, Wisconsin, on October 4th and 5th. The ride starts at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, October 4th from the Military Ridge Bike Trail parking lot and will be 50 to 60 miles. The ride starts at 8:00 a.m. on Sunday from the same location and will be 40 to 50 miles. The Mathias' will drive to Mt. Horeb on Friday, October 3rd.

We realize that this weekend is in conflict with the Fall Tailwind Ride this year. The ride had to be moved up a weekend due to a conference that will occupy Mt. Horeb the second weekend in October.

With ride season finally here and everyone is planning which rides to put on their schedules. I hope you will consider doing the Challenge Ride this year. If you have ridden it before, we can only hope you will be back to ride again as we try to make this event even bigger. Last year we changed the date to a warmer weekend and we ended up with 75 + riders, for our biggest turn out ever. Last year we raised $ 4800, which exceeded the amount raised once again at their annual golf outing. Way to go Bikers. This year the Challenge will be held, August, 16, to catch the warmer weather and hopefully fairer skies.
