    Taco Ride

    5:00 to 11:00PM | Wabash Trace Nature Trail
    Iowa West Foundation Trailhead Park, Council Bluffs,
    The Taco Ride takes place every Thursday evening on the Wabash Trace Nature Trail, from Council Bluffs, Iowa to Mineola, Iowa and back. The scenic ride is about 20 miles through the Loess Hills and ends with dinner at Tobey Jack's Mineola Steakhouse.

    The weekly rides take place from when the trail is dry enough in the spring (usually in April or May) until late in the fall (usually until Halloween). Most riders start at Iowa West Foundation Trailhead Park where parking is available.

    Slightly more than halfway between the trailhead and Tobey Jack's, many riders will stop at a picnic area, nicknamed Margaritaville, for a quick break and to join in a conversation with fellow bikers or to partake in refreshments they brought with them.

    Note: The Taco Ride is a weekly event. It runs every Thursday evening during most of the year, weather permitting. Visit the Taco Ride website, linked below, for event news.
