The River District Association will offer our first 2017 Steve Zimmerman "Rise and Shine" Historic Bike Tour of the River District. During the 90-120 minute tour we'll cruise through downtown Rockford to see stunning architecture and learn some history. The group will meet in the parking lot behind City Hall, 425 E. State St. at 8:00am.
Gary Anderson, well known Rockford architect, is knowledgeable of downtown historical buildings and development and will lead us on this tour. We encourage bike safety so please wear a helmet. Families are welcome and please know that we do ride on city streets, please keep your children safe.
Steve Zimmerman had a strong passion for downtown Rockford. He passed too young and we honor him with these rides.
