Where can I ride my bike? 
Illinois Mississippi River front: a 62-mile trial goes all the way from the Rock River in Sunset 
Park, Rock Island on through Moline, East Moline, Hampton, Rapids City, Port Byron and 
Cordova up to Thomson, Illinois.  This is part of the Great River Trail 
In Rock Island, the trail goes through city parks and past industrial areas, towboat moorings, 
the Quad City Botanical Center and Arsenal Island with eagles galore during the winter month. 
In Moline, this trail also is known as the Ralph B Birks trail, picking up at Sylvan Island at 
the Rock Island border and continuing along the Ben Butterworth Parkway, with playground 
equipment and duck-feeding opportunities, and past the John Deere Commons with all kinds 
of attractions. Sylvan Island is an urban treasure with trails of its own, including those for 
mountain bikes. 
In East Moline, this trail takes riders 3.2 miles from border to border with views of the Miss- 
issippi River.  "The Quarter" commercial/residential development and Empire Park, with its 
expensive playground equipment.  A portion rides along the top of the levee that was built after 
the 1965 flood to protect the former International Harvester and Deere plants.
