Chicago Arrival Event and Ride Along Info

Come welcome the riders of the 2012 Bike America Team as they ride into Millenium Park this Thursday, June 14th! The team will be arriving to the bean at 12:00 pm, and we’d love to see you there!

Join the Illini 4000 for their annual Ride Along and Cookout this Saturday, June 16th. The team is inviting any and all supporters to be part of the ride as the team departs Chicago and heads north. There are two different distances to choose from. Both are Metra accessible. One distance will start at 9:30 am from the Millennium Park Cancer Survivors Garden and will head north on the Lakefront Path to the Wilson Ave parking lot (7 miles). From there the team will meet up with other participants at the Wilson Ave parking lot along the Lakefront Trail (10:30am). We will continue onto the North Channel Trail and Green Bay Trail to end at Erickson Woods (16 miles) where we will have a large cookout and enjoy the hopefully beautiful summer day. We encourage anyone to do the whole route. A passenger van is being provided to shuttle riders to the cookout who are only completing part of the route. Water stops and snacks will be provided. We are asking for a $10 donation to ride and a $10 donation if you plan on eating lunch with the team.

We hope to see you there!
