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.
