Celebrate the River District of Rockford, Illinois
Join the 2nd Annual Bike Tour, River District 12


Bike riders of the Midwest, River District 12 is proud to announce the date for its 2017 Tour. River District 12 is a twelve hour bike tour designed to promote bike safety and awareness, provide a bike view of the River District, and build the community's foundation.

The event will take place on June 24, 2017 from 7am – 7pm in the River District of Rockford, Illinois. The tour's bike course has 5 main check-points, comprising a 4.5 mile loop. Participants ride the course with the intention of accumulating the most miles possible. The course will include 8 bonus check-points which will be held in a staggered arrangement. Bonus checkpoints will take you off the course and when completed, will award you with the credit of two extra laps each. Bonus check-points could include a physical task, beautification of the neighborhood, or a bike safety course.

The event has two basic categories; solo or team (2-6 people). The entry fee is $30 per rider (cash or check) at Namaste Studios or $33 per rider online. Must be 18 years or older to enter.

Registration opens April 1st both online and in person at Namaste Studios. 

A Gear Pickup will be held at Namaste Studios on Friday, June 23rd from 3-8pm.

On Saturday, June 24th we will hold a Gear Pickup from 5-6am at the Start/Finish Line located on the 100 N. Main St. Block Party Area. Gear Pick-up closes from 6am-8am and will reopen at 8am.

River District 12 is about building community, understanding who lives and works in our neighborhood, and meeting our neighbors and businesses to find out what type of amazing things are already happening here. This event was inspired by the Riverwest 24 Bike Race based in the Riverwest neighborhood of Milwaukee, WI. The intention of this type of event is to unite communities through something as simple as bike riding.

Whether you enter, participate as a spectator, or decide to volunteer for this amazing event, come spend a day with your friends, and explore our beautiful city.

Get your teams together, tell your friends, and let's plan to spend some quality time riding together this summer!

This is an Urban Adventure! Be prepared. There are a number of things you will want to do to make your experience a good one. Visit our About and Urban Navigation pages to study the route map, and make plans for food, water, and rest.
