I’ve Decided To Ride

Our purpose is to introduce new bikers to the Peoria biking community and trail system.

Our mission is to help you become more confident on your bike and introduce you to the joy of riding.

Our expert cycling coaches will teach you proper form, safety, and the rules of the road. You will gain experience, endurance, build community, and learn the local trail system with our fully supported 10 week outdoor training program designed to grow you from 0-20 miles.

If you are ready to learn a new way to get fit, stay active or progress from neighborhood riding to something a little more challenging, then we are your group. We will provide you motivation, support, accountability, information, education, tools and resources. Everything you need to be successful in becoming a more skillful rider.
