We're glad you dropped by. Plain and simple, the Bike Palatine Club's primary goal is to get more people on their bikes more often. We especially welcome those who haven't ridden in a number of years and wish to get back out on two wheels.

Our rides range from 8 mph to over 16 mph. Ride distances typically range from 5 to 30 miles. You will find riders at your experience level with similar interests. On all club rides we stick together, staying with anyone having physical or mechanical difficulties.

In 2019 we rode over 2000 miles together on our weekly casual rides alone!


Your $15 Annual Family Membership is valid for one year from your signing up and offers many benefits!

Club Member meetings are
held the FOURTH Thursday of every month at 7:00 PM
at Palatine Park District Community Center typically in the Multi-Purpose Room - check with staff for a specific meeting location.
