The best place to ride around Davenport is Coal Valley about 15 miles south. They have regular sanctioned races, but it cost over $100.00 to be a member and ride anytime. It's like the one in Byron Il, if you have ever seen it. You can ride near Credit Island which is on 61 south and Concord St. on the edge of Davenport near the river. It's not maintaned and can be rough and muddy. It's best for ice racing in the winter or in the summer when the water is low. Then there is Aledo which is 34 miles south of Davenport. It cost 10 bucks for a day. It's known for hare scrambles and has a small MX track. The trails are several miles long. Other than those I like Solon and the Badlands in Attica IN. Has anyone been to Waterloo? Fred55, I didn't get the message, but you might have been the guy I heard about at Smith Cycle, they other guy was at Oskaloosa when he must have bottomed out on the air box. He was a big guy. I go riding almost every weekend if you want to meet up somewhere. This weekend or the next I plan on checking out the Rathbun riding area. It's only 120 acres but I have some friends camping at the lake so I will make the trip. Let me know. Do you guys race or plan on racing this year?
