Local News

ROCKFORD, Ill. (WTVO) — Bike riders coasted up and down N. Second Street, between State and Auburn, for the annual I Bike Rockford Cycle on Second, Sunday morning.

Vendors were also set up at the Rockford Park District trolley station with food and games.

Organizers say the ride is about bringing attention to cyclists.

“It’s a great way for the cycling community to partner with the city and do something on the scale of the bigger bike rides in bigger cities, and it really helps with the awareness and helps us build infrastructure around town when it comes to bike paths and bike lanes,” said D.J. Wilson

This was the second year for the event.
