Spring Drive 2018 – April 14

Yes, mother nature promises that Spring is just around the corner, and will arrive just in time for our annual spring drive on April 14!  So, time to dust off the  ultimate driving machine and enjoy a fun filled day exploring Southeastern Iowa, and socializing with your fellow BMW enthusiasts.

We will launch from BMW of Des Moines at 8:45AM (arrive there NLT 8:30 please), or you can join the drive at our first major stop at Cedar Ridge Winery & Distillery in Swisher, IA, at 11:00AM that day if more convenient.  Our route will take us from Des Moines west to Swisher, then southwest to the Quad Cities, then along the Mississippi river southwest to Kalona, and home from there.  At Cedar Ridge we will be treated to a tour of their ever expanding award winning operation followed by a group lunch from their menu of great wood fired gourmet pizza’s, and small plate palate pleasers, then in the Quad Cities, we will get a tour of the recently updated BMW of Davenport facilities, and finally in historic Kalona we will have a “to die for” dinner at the very popular Tuscan Moon restaurant featuring delicious Italian/American entrees, plus burgers/sandwiches, salads, and even great vino at your choice.

It promises to be a fun day, and an outstanding opportunity to reconnect with your old friends and make some new ones, all while driving the scenic, relaxing two-laned back roads (all paved!) across Southeastern Iowa in your prize Beemer.  The more the merrier so please be sure to join us if you possibly can!!   Map and Route
