Description

Join us June 9-10 for the 3rd annual DCP Bike Challenge. This year’s route will feature scenic backroads of central Illinois starting in Peoria IL and ending in in Downtown Chicago.

This all started in 2016 when a local businessman and his daughter decided to take a bike ride from Peoria to Green Bay, Wisconsin. The aim was to grow closer to each other as father and daughter. Not only did that happen in a big way but they also challenged themselves to raise money for a not for profit organization that was near and dear to their hearts. Brett and Katie Beachler raised over $1200 for Dream Center Peoria.

This year they have chosen to ride from Peoria to Chicago. This memorable 179 mile two-day ride is great for a first time family ride or for the serious rider looking for a fully supported ride. Proceeds benefit Dream Center Peoria and support it's mission to impact families living in poverty, starting with youth.
