Description

    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.

The ride starts and ends at DeKalb High School (DHS), 501 W. Dresser Road, DeKalb, IL  60115

  • Choose from multiple routes (details available later). Riders may begin as early as 6:30 a.m., but must return to DHS by 3:30 p.m. 
  • Route Maps and Cue Sheets will be available on this webpage, two days prior to the event.  
  • If there is questionable weather, please check with Registration/Check-in by 6:15 a.m. for updates before you leave the high school.   You can also call the Beanzie Central phone number listed on the Cue Sheets.   Safety first.       

    All ride routes are provided with rest stops and water.  Hydration options and individually-packed snacks will be provided at rest stops. Our ride is easy to navigate with well-marked routes, route maps, and cue sheets, as well as Ride with GPS. Friendly SAG  drivers are knowledgeable about the route and bicycling.
