Biking is a healthy, enjoyable way to travel.  We hope you will find this site helpful in planning your next bike trip.

Recreational Bike Paths

The City of Davenport has an impressive system of recreational trails, including the 
Riverfront Trail and the Duck Creek Parkway Trail. Portions of the Riverfront Trail are also part of the national north-south Mississippi River Trail (MRT) and/or the cross-country American Discovery Trail (ADT).

Cross-connections with the MRT and ADT occur at the Arsenal Bridge and the Credit Island Pedestrian Bridges located on the riverfront. 

The City continues to expand its system of trails as funding and opportunities exist to do so. Future planning will construct segments along major creeks in Davenport, including: Crow, Pheasant, Deere, Goose, Silver and Blackhawk Creeks.

Share the Road

There has been a general nationwide push to add on-street-type, interconnected, marked bikeways, and the process of adding such marked trails will likely occur over time.

Several major arterial streets in Davenport have been designated for this purpose and have been signed and/or striped to accommodate bicycles as alternative means of travel.

The Davenport in Motion Plan presents existing alternative travel conditions in Davenport and plans for improvement of the overall transportation system.
