The Free Rider Myth – Who Really Pays for the Roads?

I joined Bike Illinois this year, and I have been impressed with some of their literature. The link below points to one of their articles.

Have you ever been harassed by a motorist claiming that, as a cyclist, you don’t pay for the roads? As it turns out, they don’t pay for them either. Read more here.

Illinois Bike Ride – Ends of the Earth Cycling

Hello!

My name is Lisa and I serve with Ends of the Earth Cycling. I am writing to let you know that we are planning on bringing one of our long-distance cycling tours to Illinois in June 2016!

Our Illinois Bike Ride will begin in Zion, IL on June 10th and end in Charleston, IL. We will pedal 300 miles in 5 days. The purpose of our tours is to transform the lives of global youth. This ride will benefit the Philippines. Going into this year, we have already hosted 9 tours in states like MD, KY, OH, and more. In our tours, we have seen more than 250 cyclists, almost 100 support staff volunteers, and upwards of $250,000 raised for youth ministries around the world!

We would like to ask you to consider partnering with us as we host our 5th annual Ends Cycling tour in the state of Illinois. Here are a few ideas we have, please let us know if any of these will work for you:

  1. Share the Ride Flyer (attached) on your cycling club’s social media page(s). We will, in turn share about your club on our Ends Cycling FB Page.
  2. Request a # of print flyers. We’ll mail them to you at our cost – just let us know how many you’d be willing to give out to your cycling club.
  3. Host a Rest Stop. We’ve had a number of cycling clubs host rest stops for us during our tours, such as the Bluegrass Cycling Club in Lexington, KY. If your club would like to give back in that way, it’d be a huge blessing!

Thank you for your consideration. We hope to hear from you regarding partnering with our 2016 Illinois Bike Ride. Thank you and have a blessed day!

Sincerely,

Lisa Perfors
Illinois Ride Director
