Festival

The post-ride festival runs from 8 a.m. to noon!

After nearly five hours of riding Lake Shore Drive, it’s time to enjoy the icing on the cake — 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 the Active Transportation Alliance).

You may purchase breakfast with your registration or pay cash on-site.

There will be food, live music and opportunities to browse booths featuring a spectrum of bike-related apparel and gear, as well as other partners. Learn more about other bicycle-related charities and upcoming cause-related rides in the Big Top Tent!

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

During the festival, you can enjoy The Sempletons: led by Keith Semple, voted Chicago’s top male singer – and his group of talented Chicago musicians, will rock you with their energetic, engaging performance and ability to sing any music style:  a mixture of classic hits of the last 60 years from the Beatles to Imagine Dragons. 

Did we mention that the festival will offer free valet bike parking?

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.

Looking forward to seeing you there! And so are our festival partners.
