The Elgin Community Network (ECN) with co-sponsors, The Bicycle Garage (Carpentersville) and The City of Elgin are planning a series of events to help make Elgin’s first annual Bike to Work Week, August 2-8, a success. During the week of August 4 through 8, showers will be available at the Centre of Elgin for those who commute to work in the downtown area on their bikes. The ECN will provide free, secure bike parking for those who ride to the Fox Fire Fest on Saturday and Sunday. On August 7, The Bicycle Garage will host a free bike clinic at the Harvest Market for those who would like to maintain their own bikes. The City of Elgin will provide a free lunch on Friday August 8 for the bike commuters who track the miles and days they commuted to work.
Free, reusable water bottles will be given at the bike corral, the bike clinic, and the Friday lunch. For more information, contact Carl Missele at 847-741-0825 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
