7th Annual Tweed Ride Oct 19!

This charming ride will begin and end at the Village Theatre, located in the quaint Village of East Davenport. Our leisurely ride along the quaint trails of the Mighty Mississippi River will begin at 11:30 am with a stop at Schweibert Park in Rock Island for tea and scones and some music and tweed-il-idee fun. We will then return to the Village Theatre for a tweed-tacular party with prizes for Best Mustache, and the best dressed bike, gents and ladies.

We Are River Action

Since River Action was founded 35 years ago, hundreds of goals have been achieved, thousands of volunteers energized, and hundreds of thousands of people enlisted in a shared mission: protecting and enhancing our Mississippi River and riverfront resources.

While it's satisfying to reflect on the organization's history and accomplishments, our focus remains on the issues and challenges ahead.
