Chicago Fitness Events - Bike the Drive 2015
Once per year, Chicago's scenic Lake Shore Drive is closed to cars for an exclusive cycling event. MB Financial Bank's Bike the Drive is an easygoing bike cruise down the lakefront. Watch the sunrise over Lake Michigan, listen to the birds chirp, and savor the iconic views of Chicago's spectacular skyline. You can cruise the entire 30-mile stretch, or just hop on for a mile or two to experience the fun atmosphere. Bike the Drive is suitable for people of all ages and abilities, and is touted as one of the country's premier cycling events. You'll find three rest stops along the route, and a post-ride festival at the end of the course with food, drinks and live music. Don't forget to take your picture at the Ultimate Skyline Selfie Station to prove you biked the drive!
Registration fees for this event are $47 for adults in advance, or $63 on the day of the ride. All proceeds benefit the Active Transportation Alliance, Chicago's nonprofit voice for improved biking, walking and transit in the area. It's a great cause - and a beautiful way to show your support. Stay at our Grant Park hotel, and enjoy a convenient location in the heart of the city. Relax after the race in our outdoor swimming pool, and celebrate with a fresh dinner at Mei's Kitchen.
