Part of our mission is to promote motorcycling as a sport and a lifestyle. Our goal is to introduce more people to the sport we love, and to bring motorcyclists and their families together. One way to accomplish that is to let other riders know when and where rides and races are taking place.
Use this resource to discover what's taking place in the greater Peoria area; Illinois and the surrounding states; and in some cases, across the nation. If you know about a great place to ride, a swap meet or any other motorcycle-related event that others may be interested in knowing about, please send a note to email@example.com
