Good Morning Early Risers / Early Riders. Are you interested participating in mid-week rides? Rides will begin between 6:00 and 7:00A with a distance of 25 – 30 miles. Typical average speed of about 11 – 14. Ride timing should work for members who are still gainfully employed and might like to get in a ride prior to going to work as well as for those with a more leisurely schedule. Winds are calmer and temps are cooler in the earlier morning hours. If interested, please text Jim at 707-486-0290 in order to be added to his group text message, remember to include your name with your text to him. RB
The Town of Normal recently submitted an application to be re-designated as a “Bike Friendly Community” by the League of American Bicyclists. The League requires the Town to solicit feedback from local bicycle enthusiasts and stakeholders. Please consider taking 10 minutes (yes, it is a little long, but worth it) to contribute your thoughts.
Deadline for submissions is Sept. 20, 2018.
If you have any questions about the BFC process, please contact Mercy Davison, Normal Town Planner, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (309) 454-9590. Thanks for your support of making bikeable Normal! RB
The Wheeler website is now a little more mobile friendly and should be responsive to Google searches. Please give it a try and let me know if you have issues or suggestions. <Contact Form>
