Biking with Beanzie (BWB) is a recreational ride presented by Kishwaukee Kiwanis Club of DeKalb and sponsored by Northwestern Medicine and other donors. The ride route consists primarily of flat rural roads with some rolling terrain. Riders can choose from multiple route options, ranging from approximately 20 to 100 miles, enabling each rider to choose the route most appropriate for him or her. Routes go through scenic DeKalb, Ogle, and Lee County windmill farms. All roads are well-paved, lightly traveled and posted with signs containing ride information and bits of Beanzie humor.
BWB also offers 3, 5, and 8-mile family-friendly, community bicycle pathway routes. Ride starts and ends at DeKalb High School (DHS), 501 W. Dresser Road, DeKalb, IL 60115
**If there is questionable weather, please check with Registration/Check-in by 6:15 a.m. before you leave the high school for any updates. You can also call the Beanzie Central phone number listed on the Cue Sheets. Safety first. With the number of riders participating in our event, it is difficult to communicate with everyone (although we try).
Family/Community Routes (3, 5, 8 mile routes & can be repeated)
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. Our 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. Ice cold watermelon and other snacks will be available following the ride. As a rider of the Biking with Beanzie 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. BWB is partnering with Northwestern Medicine and Live Healthy DeKalb County initiative to help promote a healthier lifestyle within DeKalb County.
