About I Bike Rockford

Our Mission: Working so that more people of all ages, abilities, and biking styles can say “I bike Rockford” for fun, recreation, and transportation.

I Bike Rockford started as a Facebook group with the goal of connecting people who love riding bikes to one another and share news about bicycle happenings in the Rockford region. In early 2017, group members (representing many different cycling clubs and many different cycling styles) began meeting in person to work together and speak in one voice as advocates for better cycling conditions in Rockford and beyond.

IBR has two working committees, Safety/Events/Education and Policy/Advocacy. In addition to periodic committee meetings we hold regular large-group meetings to update members on the work of the committees and news about projects and events going on in the Rockford region.

Want to stay up to date on our meetings, events, and other activities? We have two pages on Facebook:
