Chicago Bike Week


Looking for a great excuse to get your butt on a bicycle? The 29th annual Chicago Bike Week, taking place June 19-26, provides the perfect opportunity.

Here are a few events planned; more details to come as we get closer to the events.

June 12-26: Bike to Work Challenge

The most anticipated part of Chicago Bike Week is the two-week-long Bike to Work Challenge — when rivalries take hold among workplaces throughout Chicagoland as they vie for the top position in their category. Workplaces compete by earning points and getting the most employees riding to work during the week (a bike commute can mean a full or partial bike trip).

June 19: Chicago Bike Week Rally

Join hundreds of other bike commuters as they gather on the morning of June 19 from 7 a.m. – 9 a.m. for the Bike Week Rally in Daley Plaza. Come enjoy free giveaways from our sponsors as well as bike-themed entertainment and free Bike Week t-shirts for all.

June 25: Celebration on the Lakefront

Come join the annual Chicago Bike Week celebration at Theater on the Lake.
