It was a picture-perfect day for all of the riders that joined us as we pedaled through Palatine's past. The 10-mile ride started at Cutting Hall, continued up to Deer Grove with stops at Palatine historical landmarks and sites. Photos from the past and narration at stops were provided by Palatine Bike Club guides and historian David Hammer.


Highlights of the bike ride included histories of Cutting Hall, Wood Street School, Patton Mansion, Palatine’s early businesses, train stations, Masonic Temple, Durty Nellie’s,  Race Track, Fireman’s Memorial, Opera House, hospital, Comfort Lumber, banks, Ben Franklin fire, Hillside Cemetery, Palatine Bike Trail, and Old Maude legend. Guests rode at your their  pace and the weather was just right! The ride and presentations took approximately two hours to complete. Fun and educational for everyone. Thanks to all that attended and to the many volunteers that organized this event!
