With a major assist from Mother Nature, the weather held up for the rain-delayed Bike Brookfield 10K Ride today. Initially scheduled for May 20, the rescheduled ride attracted dozens of Brookfield and west suburban residents who showed up in force at the last minute for the ride. Participants were sporting the new edition of the Bike Brookfield t-shirts (navy and orange – Bears colors) and stayed for the raffle.
The Village wishes to thank the Brookfield Zoo not only for being the lead financial sponsor but also the donor of a raffle prize involving a behind-the-scenes tour of the Zoo. We also raffled off many water bottles and bike locks and bike lights thanks to Dan’s Bike Shop on Roosevelt Road.
The Village wishes to recognize the dedicated team of volunteers, staff, and security who provided a moving security buffer for the many riders who road the 10K. See you next year!
