Did You Know?

The Chicago region’s current hub-and-spoke transit system leaves nearly half a million Cook County residents stranded in transit deserts.

Lend a hand at one of the best bike rides in the nation

The 2014 MB Financial Bank Bike the Drive is just three months away! In addition to being a day of stupendous fun, this event is our biggest fundraiser of the year, and we need enthusiastic volunteers to make it a success.

Want to make a major contribution to our mission of improving biking, walking and transit? Then sign up to volunteer for Bike the Drive on Sunday, May 25th! /

For this event, we need helping hands before, during and after the event — including packet pick-up, providing snacks and water at rest stops, directing riders along the course and helping to break down the event.

When you register, you can select whichever role is right for you.

The benefits of volunteering:

  • Pre-event volunteers can earn a free event registration by volunteering six or more hours before the event.
  • Day-of-event volunteers get a free breakfast and an event T-shirt.
  • Qualified nonprofit or community groups that provide 15 or more volunteers on the day of the event can qualify for a $200 donation.

We rely on the continued support of our volunteers to produce an event of this scale. Join us at the MB Financial Bank Bike the Drive!
