Our Mission;

We seek to make Peoria and the surrounding areas more bike- friendly, we use our knowledge and experience from local, national, and worldwide resources. You'll find us at events around Peoria educating and promoting what will make our lanes, paths, and trails safer and better suited for cyclists. 

We have joined the MS movement to raise awareness and funds to STOP MS, RESTORE WHAT HAS BEEN LOST, and END MS FOREVER. 

We are  celebrating WORLD MS DAY and Bike Month by hosting a cycling fundraiser.

Bike Peoria and the Peoria Area National MS Society Community Council Present:

2022 Beers & Gears Pub Ride, Saturday May 28th

What better way to spend a Saturday afternoon than riding a bicycle and making some fun stops stops along the way? This year’s pub ride will start at Industry Brewing Company with registration from 11:00 a.m. until noon and then we’ll be making our way along the PPD Rock Island Greenway to the Village of Peoria Heights before heading back to Fox Pub for the after party with food, entertainment, and raffles.

Pub Ride Stops:

  • $25 pre-registration general admission price. Register online before 11:45 p.m. on May 27th for $5 off the normal registration price.
  • $30 day of registration general admission price. For any last minute spur of the moment riders this is the price for tickets at Beers & Gears registration table which opens at 11 a.m. May 28th.


This cycling event is the first of many that will lay the groundwork in hopes to bring bike MS to the Rock Island Trail State Park in the future. 

Periodically the National MS Society evaluates where to hold the largest cycling fundraising series in the World, based on where there is significant participation in community events and funds raised.

In the past 6 years, Bike MS cyclists have raised over $10 million dollars to help thousands affected by MS, 21,000 living in Illinois.

I believe you can rewire your brain to create positive opportunities out of the challenges in life and begin to find ways to make all of the good things stick like Velcro. POTENT is the answer. POTENT Gratitude encompasses all of life’s gifts that you can be grateful for—and the growth opportunities that arise from the challenges.

-Dr. Rick Hanson

On behalf of the Peoria Area Community Council of the National MS Society and Team Bike Peoria  we wish to sincerely thank all of the donors and sponsors. We wouldn't be closer than ever to a cure without you.

Thank You

 Please support our sponsors whenever possible.
