Sign up before July 29 and save $3 on registration for the Four-Star Bike Tour, Chicagoâ€™s longest running bike ride. This thrilling summer biking event takes place on Sunday, August 26.
Four-Star Bike Tour offers four new great routes, a scavenger hunt with prizes (12-mile route only). After your ride, thereâ€™s a post-ride festival where you can pick up lunch and refreshing Goose Island beer.
Sign up for the 12-mile route and join a scavenger hunt on the ride! Compete in the scavenger hunt as an individual or put together a team. Complete the activities, challenges and trivia questions to win prizes (how about a new bike?) Scavenger hunters are encouraged to break out their Chicago-related costumes. We expect to see hot dogs, Blues Brothers, gangsters, characters from a John Hughes film and Chicago Bears, among others. Prizes will be given for the best costume and best team costume. Groups of 10 or more adults pay $25 each (a $5 savings).
Not sure about riding on streets with traffic? Participants of the 12-mile Chicago Ramble can also sign up for Safe City Cycling, an education opportunity that will teach participants to ride more confidently and safely on city streets. Participants learn from a traffic safety expert and ride the route in a small group.
Participants choose their fully-supported route:
- Chicago Ramble & Scavenger Hunt (12-miles) (Safe City Cycling option extra)
- Boulevard Jaunt (22-miles)
- Chicago & Beyond (35-miles)
- Ultimate Neighborhood Ride (62-miles)
Mechanical support is offered, volunteers to point the way, rest stops and water stops to ensure you enjoy your ride with us.
