Eighteen Years of Car-Free Riding

The most unique bike ride you’ll take all year.
This year we are celebrating the 18th year of open roads on Lake Shore Drive. Fifth Third Bike the Drive is a classic Chicago experience, and one of the greatest bike rides in the United States. Whether you’re new to biking or a seasoned veteran, you’ll find Fifth Third Bike the Drive an event to remember—nearly five hours of car-free riding while enjoying breathtaking views of the city and the lake. Don’t miss the one day of the year when bicycles reign on Lake Shore Drive.

What’s in a name?

Yes, Fifth Third Bank is the naming sponsor of our event. In other words, Chicagoland’s local bank supports Active Transportation Alliance’s work and Fifth Third Bank’s significant contribution helps make this celebrated event possible. On May 26, everyone riding on Lake Shore Drive is making biking in Chicago a Fifth Third Better.
