ABATE summer run books are now available.

The Open Roads ABATE of Illinois Inc. Chapter is promoting its summer run books for bikers and car enthusiasts to enjoy this summer.

Chapter members Steve Gaw, Bill and Sally Kolb, Frank Lorang, Kevin and Patti Smith, Cliff and Linda Oleson coordinated this project to share their enthusiasm and excitement to others as a way to network with other chapters, organizations and communities, and to get people riding either by motorcycle or another means of transportation.

The run has 50 stops, which include bike dealers, places of interest and bar/grills from I-80 to the Wisconsin border and Route 47 to the Mississippi River. Dates run from April 1 through Sept. 30 with a post-party at the Plano American Legion on Oct. 6.

Winners must have 40 stops with at least one bonus stamped to qualify for first-, second- and third-place cash prizes. Bonus stops are Antique Archaeology in LeClaire, Iowa; Farm Friends in Big Rock; Happy Joe’s Pizza in Galena; and the ABATE State Party on June 23 in Petersburg, Illinois.

Book donations are $10 each for safety and education projects. Get your book now, ride with pride, visit new businesses, and have fun. Call Linda at 630-552-3828 or Sally at 815-791-3435 or visit the Open Roads ABATE Facebook page to get a book.
