Thanks for bike race

To the Editor:

I am writing to thank Mayor Shepley and the city of Crystal Lake for hosting the wonderful bike-racing event Tour de Crystal Lake.

It was a great day to see the bike race – the weather was perfect, the venue, our downtown is always wonderful to visit – and the race and racers were amazing to watch.

The businesses that participated also were great.

Kudos to the Raue Center and Wheel Works for the “Art of the Bike” exhibit. Some truly beautiful and famous bikes were on display, and it is not often one can touch an actual Tour de France champion’s bike.

Some businesses were surprisingly closed or did not take advantage of the race. Their loss. Perhaps they can do better if this race comes back next year, which I hope it does.
