Bike pub crawl to raise money for IVAR

Posted by wlpo on May 16, 2012

The shiny Schwinn 10 speed has taken the place of the Harley Davidson in the pub crawl-poker run.  All you need to raise money for Illinois Valley Animal Rescue Sunday is a bicycle, $15 and endurance.  And if you don’t have the latter, there will be a sag wagon to drive you to the next bar.

Russell Virgo of Bike Works in Peru has put together the fundraiser.  He says a bike pub crawl is similar to traditional pub crawls and poker runs.

As the name pub crawl implies, there will be drinking but Virgo says most people drink sensibly or they don’t drink at all because it’s hot.  He says you can ride with friends but it’s not a race.

If you’d like to ride be at 9th Street Pub in La Salle by 12pm, Sunday.  You’ll be given a route of area bars you need to visit to collect cards.  It’s $15 to participate with proceeds going to IVAR.

Five other bike pub crawls have been scheduled for this summer and fall, each benefiting different charities.
