Make your ride great!

Plan on arriving early! The event begins at 5:30 AM; the earlier you start, the longer your ride. We recommend starting at 7:00 a.m. at the latest.

MB Bike the Drive is Chicago's kickoff to summer! 

With Chicago recently being named the #1 bicycling city in America by Bicycling magazine, what better way to celebrate than with a ride on the city’s crown jewel roadway — Lake Shore Drive. So grab your bike and enjoy almost 5 hours of car-free riding on Sunday, May 28th.  Proceeds benefit Active Transportation Alliance’s work to improve biking, walking, and transit throughout Chicagoland.
