Looking for a midweek adventure that combines fitness, socializing, and the joy of exploring your city on two wheels? Council Bluffs has a new weekly bike ride ready to roll into your Wednesday evening routine. Whether you're an experienced cyclist or just looking to dip your toes into biking, this ride promises a fun and inclusive experience.
Every Wednesday, the ride will take off at 6:00 p.m. at The Railway Inn, near the start of the FIRST AVE trail. The route will vary each week but always incorporates the brand-new FIRST AVE trail. FIRST AVE is a former rail corridor located one block south of West Broadway. In May of 2023, the City of Council Bluffs celebrated the completion of the multi-use trail now known as FIRST AVE. The new trail enhances the operation of West Broadway, makes an essential link in the trail system, and provides the opportunity to redevelop obsolete industrial properties. Being a former railroad, the trail is mostly flat terrain, making it accessible to riders of all skill levels.
Want to make a night of it? Get to The Railway Inn and grab a bite to eat and a cold drink. Many riders plan to meet at 5:00 p.m. to enjoy refreshments before the ride.
This Wednesday night ride is open to everyone, from families looking for quality time outdoors to novice cyclists just getting their wheels rolling and even experienced bikers seeking a relaxed, enjoyable outing. Plus, this ride has a "No drop" policy, meaning no one will be left behind, ensuring a safe and welcoming experience for all participants. Each route allows you to explore different parts of our trail system, hang out with like-minded people, and get some exercise. Grab your bike, invite your friends and family, and join the fun.
