Open Roads ABATE of Illinois Chapter has several events planned for the year. The group will participate in group runs, the Turn Back Time Bike Show in Sycamore, Motorcycle Awareness Month, windshield washing and ABATE events.

During the summer, the group will sponsor a book run. It will consist of 65 businesses, including bike dealers, bars and grills, and places of interest, with most businesses located from Route 47 to the Mississippi River and I-80 to the Wisconsin state line.

The object of a book run is for participants to travel and patronize all the businesses, get the books stamped and to attend a post party Oct. 3, when the winners of the book run will be drawn.

To get a summer book, call Linda at 630-552-3828 or Sally at 815-791-3435.
