Open Roads ABATE of IL Chapter’s summer book run included 55 businesses of bike dealers, bars and grills, and places of interest, with most businesses located along Route 47 to the Mississippi River and Interstate 80 to the Wisconsin state line.

The object of the book run was for participants to travel and patronize all the businesses, get the books stamped and attend a post party on Oct. 5, where the winners of the book run were drawn. A total of 193 people bought books.

The third place cash prize winner was Kevin Smith, second place winner was Rob Halvax and the first place winner was Scott Savage.

A total of $800 was given to first, second and third places. The rest of the proceeds will be donated to ABATE of IL Inc. for safety and education programs and Open Roads for local programs.

There will be a 2020 summer book run. For information, call Linda at 630-552-3828.
