Cal-Sag Cycles opens its doors on Saturday, June 11 - the start of Active Transportation Alliance’s Bike Commuter Challenge. Coincidence? Of course not!
Cal-Sag Cycles is here to help Blue Islanders get their bikes back on the road. And what better way to start the summer than by biking to work? We’re all proud that BI is such a great place to get around by bike. Wether you’re doing regular errands, dining out at a fantastic local restaurant, heading to the park, or exploring our historic neighborhoods, a bicycle is the way to get around town!
For the week of June 11-17 Active Trans challenges Chicagoland residents to get to work by bike. It’s easy to do with these helpful how-to tips. The City of Blue Island is doing their part, and for the second year the Community Development Department is sponsoring a Bike to Work Week team. Biking to work is not only fun and healthy, but it’s GREEN - think of all the money you’ll be saving on gas :)
Cal-Sag Cycles is offering two opportunities to get your bike ready for the ride to work:
- On Friday, June 10 find our team, along with local bike advocates, at the season’s first TGIF picnic. Cal-Sag Cycles will be on hand at 11a to assist in safety checks and offer bicycle maintenance.
- Come to Cal-Sag Cycles, 12840 Western Ave, on Saturday, June 11 from 10a - 2p for our GRAND OPENING! It will be fun for all ages, and the Cal-Sag Cycles team will be offering FREE bicycle maintenance to all in a festive, block party atmosphere.
Later in the week, the City of Blue Island will be hosting a Bike After Work event at Restaurante Tenochtitlan, 12947 Western Ave., on Thursday, June 16 from 5:30p to 7:30p. The Blue Island Bicycle Club will help lead a leisurely bike tour of Blue Island, leaving Tenochtitlan at 7:30p. You won’t want to miss it!
