Festival

After nearly five hours of riding Lake Shore Drive, it’s time to relax at the post-ride festival, which runs from 8 a.m. to noon.  

Enjoy a delicious all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast for $8 (a portion of the proceeds goes to Active Transportation Alliance). You may purchase breakfast with your registration or pay cash on-site.

There will be additional food options and vendor booths to browse, including bike-related vendors selling apparel and gear, as well as activities offered by our bike partners. Learn about other bicycle-related charity agencies and upcoming cause-related rides in the Big Top Tent!

 

Relax with your pancake breakfast while listening to live music from R-Gang, a R&B, funk and soul band playing songs from the Motown era to the 21st Century. Voted “Best Dance Band” by Suburban Nitelife Magazine - so “If you can’t dance to this band, check your pulse!"

 

The festival is located in Butler Field in Grant Park (between Jackson Drive and Monroe Street, Columbus Drive and Lake Shore Drive) near the start/finish.

Free bike valet parking is available - so stay a while, knowing your bike is secure. 

Visit the Active Transportation Alliance membership tent and learn about what we’re doing for bicyclists, pedestrians and transit users in your community.

We’re a green event and we need your help! Look for recycling and fruit composting containers at the rest stops and the festival. Please do your part to dispose of your waste in the appropriate containers.

Active Transportation Alliance and it's festival partners look forward to seeing you there!
