Get Your Bike Out and Ride: Chicago Bike Events This Weekend

Yep, the weekend is almost upon us my friend and along with the usual neighborhood festivals there’s a few bike rides, bike clinics, and other bike-related events going on in Chicago this weekend.   Grab your bike, check the air in your tires, and head on out!

Beau Geste

Beau Geste - one of the professional racing yachts that will head out from Monroe Harbor around 2:30pm on Saturday

  • Race to Mackinac – well, OK, so this is not really a bike event, but you can ride your bike down to Monroe Harbor on Friday and Saturday to see the boats as they start heading out across the starting line. The starting line will be about a mile out, marked by Coast Guard boats on either side – often the ice-breaker Mackinaw is one of the boats.  The cruising sections will start on Friday, but the majority of the boats will start on Saturday.  There are about 340 boats in this year’s race, so even if you’re not on the starting line, the parade of boats along the lakefront is a great sight to see.
