  It's time to start scratching your head and plan your goals for 2022.  How far will I ride this year?  Where will I ride this year?  Will it all be local or will I go on far away adventures? Can I get together with all of my riding crew again?  Should I get a new bike? (can you even?)  All valid questions.  Here are some pointers for becoming ride ready in the coming months.

Get your bikes into your local bike shop for a tune up in the midst of the mad spring rush. They'll check the chain for wear (should be replaced every 1,500 miles or so).  The tires might need to be replaced.  They are hard to come by right now.  Do you have lights on your bike?  If not, buy some and use them EVERY TIME you ride. Be seen. Get some high viz clothing.  Be seen!  When was the last time you bought a new helmet? It should be replaced after EVERY accident and at least every 5 years. Protect that noggin..


The Smith Street crossing from Smith, crossing Dundee into the Deer Grove Forest Preserve is slated to become a reality this year.  More news can be found here in the coming months

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
