    • Ride Open Trails: Respect trail and road closures — ask a land manager for clarification if you are uncertain about the status of a trail. Do not trespass on private land. Obtain permits or other authorization as required. Be aware that bicycles are not permitted in areas protected as state or federal Wilderness.

    • Leave No Trace: Be sensitive to the dirt beneath you. Wet and muddy trails are more vulnerable to damage than dry ones. When the trail is soft, consider other riding options. This also means staying on existing trails and not creating new ones. Don't cut switchbacks. Be sure to pack out at least as much as you pack in.

    • Control Your Bicycle: Inattention for even a moment could put yourself and others at risk. Obey all bicycle speed regulations and recommendations, and ride within your limits.

    • Yield Appropriately: Do your utmost to let your fellow trail users know you're coming — a friendly greeting or bell ring are good methods. Try to anticipate other trail users as you ride around corners. Bicyclists should yield to other non-motorized trail users, unless the trail is clearly signed for bike-only travel. Bicyclists traveling downhill should yield to ones headed uphill, unless the trail is clearly signed for one-way or downhill-only traffic. In general, strive to make each pass a safe and courteous one.

    • Never Scare Animals: Animals are easily startled by an unannounced approach, a sudden movement or a loud noise. Give animals enough room and time to adjust to you. When passing horses, use special care and follow directions from the horseback riders (ask if uncertain). Running cattle and disturbing wildlife are serious offenses.

    • Plan Ahead: Know your equipment, your ability and the area in which you are riding and prepare accordingly. Strive to be self-sufficient: keep your equipment in good repair and carry necessary supplies for changes in weather or other conditions. Always wear a helmet and appropriate safety gear.
  • Sunderbruch Park

    Sunderbruch Park is the crown jewel of off-road riding in Davenport, Iowa. Comprised of 99% singletrack trails, a full gamut of difficulty levels (green to black diamond) are incorporated into the seven mile trail system. Sunderbruchís GREEN trails boast 2 miles of the most beautiful wooded scenery found in Davenport and test riders with a few small, beginner log crossings, one ladder bridge and one corduroy feature Our BLUE trails offer riders moderate changes in elevation, some rooted and off-camber terrain, and a variety of corduroy sections and log-crossings. BLACK Sunderbruch trails greet riders with fast descents and challenging climbs, creek crossings, some narrow winding trails, roots, skinnies, drops, and a plethora of logs. Sunderbruch has something to meet every riderís interest. You will not go home disappointed!

    There are also approximately 4 1/2 miles of separate equestrian trails for our hoofed friends.
