It’s not even the end of January yet, but we are thinking about warm weather bike rides and know that you are too!
Are you interested in participating in a longer, car free, supported bicycle ride? Sign up for Bike the Drive today and join us on Sunday, May 28, 2017 as we kickoff summer riding season! Early sign-up means that you’ll save $ on your registration.
Bike the Drive is not a race. It is a really cool celebration of bike riding. You can start as early as 5:30 AM, as late as 9:00 AM, and choose multiple distances–anywhere from 7 miles to 60 miles (if you start early enough). You will see every kind of bike and every kind of rider, from small kids on bikes with training wheels to racers in training speeding in designated fast lanes, and lots of average riders going at average speed. The best part: 30 miles of uninterrupted Lake Shore Drive. No cars, no intersections, wide roads, and smooth asphalt. There are snacks at the rest stops! Fruit, cookies, mini-muffins! Restrooms! Water!
The event raises money for ActiveTrans which advocates to make bicycling, walking and public transit safe, convenient and fun. Join LiNito Cycle and sign up now at http://www.bikethedrive.org/. See you bright and early on Sunday, May 28 at Bike the Drive!
Just a friendly reminder to all our friends…if your bike needs any work or a tune-up before Bike the Drive, you need to have it in the shop by Monday, May 15th so we can complete the work in time to get your bike back to you before the ride.
