This past June, the League of Illinois Bicyclist (LIB) launched www.bikesafetyquiz.com, an interactive resource with brief but thorough quiz-based lessons - one each for Adult Bicyclists, Child Bicyclists, and Motorists. The content, approved by the Secretary of State's Office, covers relevant state laws, safety techniques and how to avoid common crash types. The LIB has started working with bike shops, bike clubs, driver's education instructors, towns, schools, police and others to promote its use. If you have not seen it yet, check it out and take the quiz today! For those who complete the quiz, a "Certificate of Completion" can be printed out.
Thanks all of your feedback on how to improve the Z Tour Bike Ride. Many of you said that you wanted more hills on the 62 mile route. Well, good ole Doc Ev has been thinking about it all winter and it looks like you are going to get your wish.
Last night we welcomed Dan Eiten and Sue Fandel to our Steering Committee. We are very, very fortunate to have these folks on board and look forward to their contributions! 2014 plans are in full swing for another great ride. Stay tuned for details.
