Join us for a leisurely bike tour of the South Branch from 10 a.m. to noon on Sunday, September 17.

Please see the route (pictured). We'll ride in neighborhood bike lanes for the majority of the 6.5 mile course.

Riders will meet at Federal Plaza (Adams/Dearborn) at 10 a.m. The low-stress route includes stops at Ping Tom Park (Chinatown), El Paseo Community Garden (Pilsen), and the Eleanor Street Boathouse (Bridgeport).

Along the way, we'll talk about projects and how you can get involved. The ride will conclude at the Eleanor Street Boathouse. For those who'd like to return to downtown, there'll be a group leaving from Brideport after the ride ends. 

We'll celebrate the Chicago River Trail campaign's first year and demonstrate our support for a continuous trail.

Thank you to everyone who has already registered. To RSVP and with any questions, please contact Steve Simmons,, 312.216.0472.
