"The mission of the Greater Palatine Bicycle Task Force is to make our community more bicycle-friendly. This will be accomplished by offering educational and outreach programs that encourage and increase bicycling, and by evaluating and recommending infrastructure improvements that make bicycling safer, more convenient and enjoyable, and more integrated with neighboring communities."
Our next BPC meeting is set for Wednesday, April 16, 2014 at the American Legion, 122 W. Palatine Road in Palatine. Agenda items will be to recap Traffic 101 - Ride Leaders Seminar and the ABC Bike Clinic. Plans will be finalized for the Healthy Living Ride in April and the Bike Pal Safety Clinic and Ride in June.
Welcome to all our newest members at our last meeting!
Get your bike ready for the riding season by joining us on Saturday, March 15, 2014 from 9:30-11:30 a.m. at Birchwood Gym for our first-ever FREE ABC Bike Clinic! Volunteers will check tire air pressure, inspect bike brakes and check chain for wear plus lube! Did we mention this is all for FREE? While you wait, check out club information and save the dates for upcoming rides, events and more. Community and State bicycle information will be on hand along with great raffle prizes for anyone that joins the club including bike accessories and BPC merchandise.
