I don’t live all that far from Lake Shore Drive and see the “Bike The Drive” event happen every year.
Every year, I tell myself that I’m going to do it the next year because it looks like so much fun!
Problem is, I have yet to follow up on that promise to myself!
Maybe this will be the year!
“Bike The Drive” happens on Sunday, May 28th, which is the day before Memorial Day.
There’s no cars, just bikes, and there’s a whole lot of them for five hours!
Somewhere in the neighborhood of 20,000 bikes!
There’s also a HUGE festival they do at the end too!
Besides, you’re helping raise money to help build bicycle and walking paths around the city!
If you want to get involved, you can get all the info right here.
Not that any of this should come as a shock to us Chicagoans!
I mean, we were named the #1 bicycling city by Bicycling Magazine. Don’t believe me? Here’s proof…
