FULL MOON RIDE

Our last ride was by the light of the full moon in which 70+ riders departed from Palatine Hills Golf Course for a leisurely 7 mile ride. It was a chilly October evening making it perfect for the afterride merriment in the newly remodeled clubhouse. Many thanks to everyone that participated making our last ride of the season so memorable. A big thanks to the Palatine Park District and Sponsors for coordinating this event including the great raffle prizes.

CYCLEFEST

Thanks to all of the Sponsors, Riders and Volunteers for making our 6th Annual CycleFest ~Tour of Palatine a huge success! It was great seeing so many people on bikes during Palatine's StreetFest 2014. Ride Leaders took participants through many scenic streets and paths of Palatine on 9, 15 or 23 mile tour options.  New maps and cue sheets courtesy of David Lieb made for a safe ride along all routes. Congrats to all the raffle winners at the finish line as well.
