Peoria Sculpture and Architecture Ramble Professional Review and Guide
"Peoria is a perfect place for an urban bike tour: As the oldest city in Illinois, there’s much to see, and the city itself is not large enough to make traffic a problem. You’ll get a taste of Peoria’s history, architecture, and public sculptures by taking this trip through the city neighborhoods, into downtown, along the river pathway, and past the city zoo.
What better way to get to know a city than to hop on a bike? On a bicycle, you can cover a lot of ground and it’s easy to stop to gawk at the sights. A bike also allows you to become fully acquainted with the terrain along the way. Sheldon Schafer, the vice president of education at Peoria’s Lakeview Museum, is well aware of the advantages of seeing a city such as Peoria on a bike. This urban Peoria ride is drawn from one of the many free group rides that he’s been leading in Peoria for a number of years."
