Fifth Third Bike the Drive is Chicago’s Largest Cycling Event

Grab your bike and join 20,000 people on a car-free Lake Shore Drive on Sunday, May 24. Whether you’re new to biking, a seasoned veteran, or biking with kids, you’ll find Fifth Third Bike the Drive an event to remember. Ride as little or as much of the 30-mile course as you’d like and then enjoy a post-ride festival in Grant Park. No bike? No problem! Rentals are available. Don’t miss this once-a-year event when bicycles reign over Lake Shore Drive


30-Mile Challenge

Looking to tackle all 30 miles of Lake Shore Drive? Sign up for the 30-mile challenge during registration! You'll receive a 30-Mile Challenge racing bib to show that you’re riding for glory on event day AND if you complete the entire 30-mile course, you'll receive a limited edition medal to commemorate your triumphant achievement!

Just track your mileage on a smart phone and stop by the main festival in Grant Park or one of our rest stops after the ride to pickup your medal.

Your Ride Supports a Good Cause

Fifth Third Bike the Drive is a fundraiser for Active Transportation Alliance, a membership-based non-profit advocacy organization working to improve conditions for walking, biking and public transit throughout Chicagoland.

Thanks to our sponsors for making this event possible!
