Chicago Bike Week

Let’s celebrate biking during Chicago Bike Week, June 29 – July 3, 2020!

Chicago Bike Week, presented by Freeman Kevenides Law Firm, will help you get your biking in gear for the summer season.

New to biking and need some tips on topics like how not to get your bike stolen? Maybe you already consider yourself a seasoned rider and are looking for new ways to have fun on two wheels?

Throughout the week, we’ll be providing free tips and tricks for riders of all abilities. Plus, we’ll be rolling out some fun Bike Week activities you can safely participate in! RSVP via Facebook.

Bike Week Event Highlight: Know your rights on a bike in Illinois! Join Active Trans and attorney Brendan Kevenides of FK Law for a Bike Law Chat. Video to come. 

For Chicago Bike Week, we’re sharing a video conversation between Active Transportation Alliance Executive Director Amy Rynell and our Board of Directors Vice President Rubani Shaw. Amy and Rubani discuss topics like what’s happening for Bike Week, Amy’s background, and Active Trans’ mobility justice work in the region.


Cycling is a healthy way to travel and commute, and it’s a good type of physical activity when you’re trying to maintain physical distance from others. Summer can be safely enjoyed on a bike!
