I have family in Muscatine, IA, so I frequent that area. I took my bike out there last year, and nobody at any of the bike shops knew of any other trials riders, or even what trials is sadly. De-virginized the city, and it had a ton of good riding, I thought.

Anyway, if there were any riders, I'd love to meet up next time I'm in the area.

Pancho, that's hilarious. Dave and I are from Davenport, IA (bout 40 minutes north of muscatine). Davenport has TERRIBLE riding, but always post on here before you go because I or Dave may be heading that way as well :). The guys at On Two Wheels in Davenport know me well, so they have at least heard of trials and stuff, they're a good shop if you need something done while you're in the area.

I dunno, I'll need to ask my roomate when he will be back too cause his schedule over christmas is kinda weird. Not to mention the fact that I have no idea what my schedule will be like either, so it's kind of hard to pre-plan. We need to swap phone numbers so we can get in touch in iowa. Where is mud Island?

Well, I'm back in Davenport, and haven't really been on the site in about a week :eek3:. Hopefully things calm down here a bit at home.

Pancho, I just got a Canon EOS 300d Digital SLR, so we'll have to play with that and take some good biking pics if we get together. I know you're a camera guy yourself, so it should be fun ;).

Nathan, When are you going to be in the area... from what date to what date?

I'm in Davenport from now until like Jan 5th give or take. Cell = 303-817-4732.

Gimme a call when you get to the quad cities or if you're going for a ride wherever you are.
