The BPAC organizes and hosts community bike rides to meet local cyclists and acquaint people with the Village network of bikeways. The Commission believes that in doing so, participants are encouraged to consider biking the next time they have a short trip to make into downtown or to any of the many destinations the Village of Arlington Heights is home to.
