Dear Illinois bike club presidents,
LIB is conducting the Illinois Bike Summit on October 28 in Champaign. The event offers great info on a wide range of topic choices, all focused on better bicycling conditions in your towns. This includes infrastructure, education, advocacy, and more. Registration is at www.illinoisbikesummit.org.
Clubs can play a big role in improving cycling locally. Some of your club members might be interested in attending – would you please forward this to them? Local agency officials and staff are invited, too, if you have contacts with your city.

The BBC will be in Peoria filming for a science documentary about the end of the Earth when the Sun expands to a Red Giant stage. They’re using our Community Solar System as a giant super-graphic visual.
They will be here October 18th – 20th, and on Monday, October 19th will be filming here in town. At 2:00 p.m., they want to film a small group of perhaps a half dozen cyclists riding from the Sun to Mars along the riverfront trail. We will be carrying a model of the Earth with us as well.
So, if you’re off that day, retired, or otherwise available, and willing to ride a couple of miles for the BBC cameras, please contact me (phone or email – info in my signature file).
Thanks so much.
