BART Bike For The Arts posterUp for a bike ride with fellow public radio fans supporting the arts in the northern Illinois community?

Northern Public Radio invites listeners to “Bike for the Arts” (aka “BART!”), scheduled Saturday, Sept. 7, in Rockford. Register as part of the WNIJ-WNIU Team to enjoy special perks such as a team photo, the station logo on an official T-shirt and a chance at extra prizes!

The outing features four different rides: 10-mile, 22-mile, 37-mile and a 55-65-mile option. All routes begin and end at the Riverfront Museum Park (711 N. Main St. in Rockford) with musical performances taking place along the way.

Funds raised by “BART” are shared among the Rockford Symphony Orchestra, Rockford Dance Company, Mendelssohn Performing Arts Center and Kantorei, the Singing Boys of Rockford.

Individual registration is required; simply note an affiliation with the “WNIJ-WNIU Team” on the form. Team participants will hear from the captain with final details before the event.

Sign up soon: the deadline is Wednesday, Aug. 21.
