Chicago Bike Week

From June 10-14, Chicagoland will take part in the Bike Commuter Challenge as part of Chicago Bike Week. With the weather turning and summer in full swing, there's no better time than now to explore Chicago. With a trail that extends the length of the city and designated lanes for bikers, Chicago is bike friendly all year-round.

Chicago Bike Week 2013 is a celebration of cycling that culminates at the Bike to Work Rally at Daley Plaza in the heart of downtown Chicago on June 14. This awesome gathering of thousands of bike enthusiasts starts at 7 AM and will feature complimentary breakfast for bicyclists, this Bike Week 2013 t-shirt and a complimentary bike valet.

There will also be fantastic events throughout the week, including a free outdoor spin class in Millenium Park, free outdoor yoga and free evening ride through the Near North side. Click here for details of the daily offerings.
