Century Ride

About This Activity

ATTENTION Bike riders and bike rider wannabe's! Saturday September 14th will be the 2nd Annual Dubuque Strong Century Ride featuring 100 Mile, 100K and 50K benefit bike rides. Call your friends and put a group of riders together because it will be a great time. Plus it is a GREAT cause with all of the proceeds going to the Riverview Center. So dust off your old 10 speed, mountain bike, banana seat, unicycle or whatever is your pleasure and start riding!

Riverview Center is a nonprofit agency committed to providing compassionate, client-centered care for individuals affected by sexual assault in Iowa, and for individuals affected by sexual and domestic violence in Illinois. Their free services include a 24-hour crisis hotline, legal and medical advocacy, long and short-term counseling, transition assistance for domestic violence survivors, and violence prevention education programs.
