CycleFest departed on time despite early morning rain. Geared for all ages, four routes were offered this year! Guests chose from 9, 15, 23 or 33+ mile tour options for riders of various skill levels. It remains our biggest ride of the year and we once again had a great turnout!
Part of the Village of Palatine’s StreetFest celebration, CycleFest rolls along scenic streets and bike paths in the Palatine area and beyond.
Trained leaders accompanied each group of riders to ensure that all cyclists and their bikes completed the course. Route markings, route maps and mechanical assistance were provided for the three shorter routes. Ride leaders on all tours and a rest stop was set up for the long 33 mile tour which all enjoyed.
Pre-registered riders received a free performance fabric shirt with our new CycleFest logo. Club Members received a $5 discount on the $25 registration fee. All proceeds from this event go back into the community, running events throughout the year, most of them free, that focus on safety, fun and fellowship for riders at all levels as well our advocacy work promoting safe cycling. Hope you can join us next year!
