Family members of Dr. Ronald Hofmann plan to participate in a bicycle ride in his honor before his funeral on Saturday, and they invite other bicycle riders to join them.
Hofmann is a former member of the Davenport Levee Improvement Commission who worked to develop bike paths in the Quad-Cities and personally funded the first segment of the Davenport riverfront path, his nephew, Scott Heming, said.
The bike ride Saturday will honor Hofmann's efforts, Heming said. Family and friends will gather at 9:30 a.m. at Lindsay Park Yacht Club, 2100 W. River Drive, Davenport, and will begin the ride at 10 a.m. They will head to downtown Bettendorf, turn and ride to downtown Davenport before returning to the yacht club.
Hofmann's funeral will be 2 p.m. Saturday at St. Anthony's Catholic Church, 417 Main St., Davenport. Obituary, A10.
