It looks like it’s going to be a good weather weekend, so why not take advantage of Mother Nature’s good mood and get to know Rockford’s River District?

The 2nd Annual River District 12 is happening this Saturday, and if last year’s event was any indication, it promises to be a really fun time for your whole family. All you need to take part is the $30 per rider entry fee (cash or check at at Namaste Studios, or $33 online), and your bike. Riders must be 18 years of age or older.

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 ride begins at 7am, with a wrap-up at 7pm, in Rockford’s River District.


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.

Even though the event is happening tomorrow, it’s not too late to sign up. Click here for registration information.
