Duathlon to cause more bike traffic

Residents of Crystal Lake, Lakewood and Lake in the Hills should keep an eye out for cyclists on Sunday during the 10th annual Run and Roll at the Dole duathlon.

The event will begin at 8 a.m. on Sunday at Crystal Lake’s historic Dole Mansion, 401 Country Club Road, with a 2-mile run through Crystal Lake followed by a 13-mile bike ride through the hillier sections of the three associated communities and then the same 2-mile run course in reverse.

Lake in the Hills Police are advising motorists of increased bicycle traffic on Miller Road between Haligus and North Lakewood Roads.

A portion of the proceeds from the event will go toward the Lakeside Legacy Foundation, which is dedicated to the preservation of the Civil War-era mansion.
