The Celebration of Cycling is an annual bike ride that directly supports PEAC’s Summer Programming.

PEAC is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that empowers individuals through cycling in by increasing community access, fostering social involvement and promoting healthy lifestyles.

Our seven week summer program provides all students, no matter their disability. This program is offered in Taylor, Ann Arbor, Lansing, Saline, Dexter, Farmington Hills and Toledo. Our unique methods meet the needs of each participant by working with parents and student to create and accomplish goals. Some goals include: learning to balance and ride a two-wheeled bike, riding a tandem with peers and riding in the community.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

 

What does this ride support? The Celebration of Cycling is PEAC’s fundraiser for the Summer Program. Each year, hundreds of students take part in our summer program to learn valuable cycling skills such as learning to ride a two-wheeled bike, participating in a community ride on a tandem or learning to pedal and steer a tricycle. The Celebration of Cycling is a way for our students to showcase their skills to the community. Last year, PEAC worked with over 275 students to help them achieve their cycling goals amd none of it would be possible without your support!
