Tim Weaver and I are co-leading the GIBT in June 2021. As there are carryover registrations from 2020, space is limited already. Let us know if you are interested in attending and/or if you have registered. There is a flexible refund policy due to current health concerns. See below and GIBT website for more details. https://rideillinois.org/events/2021-grand-illinois-bike-tour/
