Cycling film Inspired to Ride coming to Peoria on Jan. 30

Hi. You are receiving this email because you have previously attended one of our film events in Peoria, probably a cycling film. Thank you for your patronage as we could not continue to bring these films your way without your support.

We are pleased to be coming back to Peoria with another adventure film when we screen the cycling film Inspired to Ride, about last year’s inaugural self-supported 4,200-mile cross-country bike race, on Saturday, Jan. 30 at the Apollo Theatre. This event is sponsored once again by the Peoria Area Mountain Bike Association.

Please find all the information in the attached press release or in our Facebook event:

Tickets are $12 in advance at or $15 at the door the night of the show.

Thank you.

Garry Harrington, Promoter

LIB is now Ride Illinois

Ride Illinois Logo
October 19, 2015
New name, new logo, new website

Since 1992, the League of Illinois Bicyclists has been dedicated to one mission – to improve bicycling conditions around the state so that more people can safely and easily ride in Illinois. Over the years, we have evolved from a state chapter of the League of American Bicyclists to an independent organization with a strong advocacy voice in Springfield and municipalities all around the state. In that time, our membership has increased from a few hundred people to more than 2,200 Illinois residents thanks to your support!

Today, we are excited to introduce ourselves as Ride Illinois. It’s a name that reflects the growing popularity of bicycling statewide and aligns a broad range of people with our mission. It’s a name that clearly demonstrates what happens when our work succeeds and bicycling becomes safer and more accessible across the state. It’s an action-oriented name that embodies the goal of our organization and will inspire everyone who rides a bike to Ride Illinois.

We’re also excited to present our new logo and website. We’ve modernized our logo and put a bicycle front, center, and in motion against the distant background of one of our state’s most bike friendly cities. Our new website is technologically up to date and offers us abundant opportunity to visually showcase how people throughout our state Ride Illinois.

Our mission remains the same, and we will continue to work for more bike friendly roads and trails, more favorable policies and legislation, and more education on sharing our roads safely. Our new name will help position us for future growth and inspire stronger support from new partners – individuals, businesses, peer organizations, and communities across the state. We also hope that this exciting change strengthens your interest in our mission, and that we can count on your loyal support!

We will continue to work statewide for better bicycling, so you can get out there and Ride Illinois!

Special thanks go to Someoddpilot for working with us through the rebranding process and creating a modern and friendly website we hope you’ll enjoy visiting often. We were very lucky to work with a team who care about our mission and are as enthusiastic about riding as we are.
