Biking with Beanzie 2024 Notice. Beanzie will have prepackaged snacks and ice-cold water. Bring your own water bottles. We will also have individual packs of Gatorade powder that riders can add to their water if they want to.
To ensure a safe and enjoyable ride experience, we will follow appropriate state and local COVID-19 guidelines, and we expect all ride participants to do so as well.

Biking with Beanzie (BWB) is a recreational ride presented by Kishwaukee Kiwanis Club of DeKalb and sponsored by numerous donors. As a Beanzie rider, you will be investing in our community. BWB is a self-paced event that promotes fitness and family fun, not a race.
Profits from this ride go to support the Kishwaukee Bike Pathway projects and numerous charitable organizations in DeKalb County. BWB partners with the Live Healthy DeKalb County initiative to help promote a healthier lifestyle within DeKalb County.

The ride route consists primarily of flat rural roads with some rolling terrain. Riders can choose from multiple route options enabling each rider to choose the route most appropriate for the rider. All roads are well-paved, lightly traveled and posted with signs containing ride information and bits of Beanzie humor.
