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

Thank you to MB Financial Bank, the title sponsor of MB Bike the Drive, for making this event possible.

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 27th.  Proceeds benefit Active Transportation Alliance’s work to improve biking, walking, and transit throughout Chicagoland.


30-Mile Challenge: Plan to crush all 30 miles on the Drive? Grab a 30-Mile Challenge bib at packet pick up before you hit the road to highlight that you’re participating! Track your mileage with an app on your smartphone. And be sure to swing by the festival after your ride to pick up your token of accomplishment and grab some high fives from other Challenge participants. Remember MB Bike the Drive is open to riders of all skill level, so please be cautious while competing in the challenge.

Also, be sure to grab a limited edition 30-Mile Challenge tech tee during registration (all orders will be shipped 4-6 weeks after the event)

Custom rider numbers: Strut your stuff with customized rider numbers. While you are registering take the opportunity to jazz up your race day rider materials. Use your nickname, pay tribute to a loved one, propose to your significant other. Whatever—add your personal flair.
