The Bike Palatine Club is a non-profit organization with a mission to make our community more bicycle-friendly.

WELCOME to 2021!!


It's time to jazz up our Thursday evening casual rides!
Starting Thursday, July 8, Bike Palatine Club's casual rides roll out from Harper College (LOT 8) instead of Mikes Bike Shop.  After the ride, cool off under the stars while floating away on the jazz tunes offered by Harper College's music department.
Harper's free evening concerts extend through Thursday, July 29, with performances starting at 7:30 at the
north side bandshell, officially the Drs. Kenneth and Catherine Ender Pavilion Stage.  Hour-long 6:30 casual
rides will drop you off in time for the first saxophone riff.
Thursday casual rides will resume in August at Mikes Bike Shop.  No change to Tuesday evening casual rides - they continue to take off from Birchwood Recreation Center.  As usual for all casual rides, arrive by 6:15 for a quick bike check and log in.  Helmets required.

Pan-Oceanic Engineering Co., Inc. finished its site flood zone project to reduce frequency of trail flooding. 
Along the Huntington Road section of the trail, this drainage line runs back into the forest preserve.


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
