Taco Ride - Every Thursday - All Summer Long!


What’s Happening?

The Taco Ride takes place every Thursday evening on the Wabash Trace Nature Trail, from Council Bluffs, Iowa to Mineola, Iowa, and back. The scenic ride is about 20 miles through the Loess Hills and ends with dinner at Tobey Jack's Mineola Steakhouse. The weekly rides take place from when the trail is dry enough in the spring (usually in April or May) until late in the fall (usually until Halloween).

Most riders start at Iowa West Foundation Trailhead Park where parking is available. Slightly more than halfway between the trailhead and Tobey Jack's, many riders will stop at a picnic area, nicknamed Margaritaville, for a quick break and to join in a conversation with fellow bikers or to partake in refreshments they brought with them.

Riders will generally be getting on the trail between 4:00pm and 6:00pm, arrive at the Margeritaville clearing within 45 minutes, have a snack and a drink if you'd like and ride another 30 minutes to Toby Jack's Bar for music, tacos, and drinks. Most riders will head back between 7:30pm and 9:30pm.

IMPORTANT: Bring a Headlight for Your Bicycle and Wear a Helmet. Typically, most riders ride back in the dark and you will need a light to see. Thousands of riders safely partake in The Taco Ride every week, so don't be afraid, just be prepared with one light per rider and make sure everyone wears a helmet.

Note: The Taco Ride is a weekly event. It runs every Thursday evening during most of the year, weather permitting.
