Elgin, IL Starlight Parade!

From the FB page:

Come ride with us in a starlight parade along the Fox River! Elgin Bike Hub is taking the next steps to become a non-profit community organization and we want to celebrate with you. Decorate and light up your bike and join us in the dream of Elgin as a "cycle city". 

We will be joined by special guest, Alison Farrell, author/illustrator of the children's book "Cycle City", the source of our event theme. http://www.drawdrawdraw.com/books/

We will ride for just 2 slow-rolling miles on a bike path route, which will be lined with our own special stars.

Riders please take care that your bike has a clear headlight and a red rear reflector or a red rear light (to comply with IL state law for night riding).
