The FREE Bike Valet Parking allowed many to leave their cars at home and enjoy Palatine's Jaycees Hometown Fest and fireworks-worry free. Bikes were dropped off at the tennis courts near the Park District office on Wood Street and secured inside the fenced in tennis courts.

"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."
