KC ARES Supports Local Bicycle Events

Members of Kane County and DuPage County ARES groups provided communications support for the Cystic Fibrosis Cycle for Life Bike ride held on Sunday, August 17, 2019. The ARES team provided communications between race control and the support vehicles deployed on course to assist riders and deal with emergency situations. The event, sponsored by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, raises funds that are used to to raise funds for research and awareness.

Oh the same day, ARES members also supported the “Ride Like an Egyptian” bike ride in DeKalb county, which raises funds for the historic Egyptian Theater in DuPage.
