Biking With Beanzie will be held this Sunday, July 15th. Biking with Beanzie is a recreational ride presented by Kishwaukee Kiwanis Club of DeKalb and sponsored by Kishwaukee Community Hospital. The ride route consists of primarily flat rural roads with some rolling terrain with estimated ride options of 25, 46, 62, 80 or 101 miles. Past rides have gone through scenic Lake Shabbona State Park and the Lee County windmill farm. All roads are well-paved, lightly traveled and posted with signs containing ride information and bits of Beanzie humor. This year also includes 3-mile and 5-mile community bicycle pathway routes (with option to repeat).
All ride routes are provided with rest stops and water stops, regardless of the length of the route chosen. Bagels, fruit, beverages and a variety of other food options will be provided at rest stops. The ride is easy to navigate with well-marked routes, route maps, and cue sheets. Friendly sag wagon drivers are knowledgeable about the route and bicycling. Community booths and food vendors will also be available following the ride. As a rider of the Biking with Beanzie (BWB) event, you will be investing in our Community. BWB is a “family” event that promotes fitness and family fun. Profits from this ride go to support the Kishwaukee Bike Pathway Projects and other projects within DeKalb County.
