To the editor:
The Kishwaukee Kiwanis Club of DeKalb wants to thank our community for a very successful 11th annual Biking with Beanzie event, held last Sunday. Riders chose from 23, 43, 62 and 101 miles. This year, nearly 500 riders from throughout the Midwest participated in the ride. Numerous rest/water stops and SAG support drivers are provided throughout the event.
