Winter Bike Challenge, presented by Keating Law Offices, wraps up

Despite the COVID-19 pandemic and brutal February weather, nearly 350 people suited up and participated in the 2021 Winter Bike Challenge, presented by Keating Law Offices.

Overall, riders logged nearly 2,000 miles over the course of 300 trips.

During the two-week challenge, riders saw all types of cold weather thrown at them, including one day with over ten inches of snow in the Chicago-area. Despite the snow that day, eight winter riders still got out and logged miles.
