One of the highlights and a tradition of our Tweed Ride is the stop at Credit Island Park's Suerat Statue Garden. The statue display inspired by the George Seurat painting "Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte” was first installed by River Action in 1998 as one of nine Riverway art projects around the Quad-Cities. It has not been without it's controversy as through the years some city officials have deemed the project too unwieldy and something that should be relegated to an indoors location. River Action director Kathy Wine is equally adamant that the display stay outdoors, and over the years many volunteers have stepped up to the task of preserving the display. To that end, the proceeds from the Tweed Ride help offset the costs involved with maintaining this iconic and unique piece of the Davenport Riverway landscape.
Every proper bicycle ride should include a picnic
