Only 24 percent of jobs in the region are accessible by transit in 90 minutes or less by a typical resident — and that number drops to 12 percent in the suburbs.

Pedal, pints, party! Join us for Bike to Brew!

We hope you can join Active Trans for the inaugural Bike to Brew event at Revolution Brewing’s production brewery.

On Saturday, July 26, Bike to Brew will offer 1,500 lucky people the opportunity to ride from downtown around 5 p.m. on a carefully-crafted eight mile route through Chicago’s North and Northwest Sides to arrive at Revolution Brewing on Kedzie for a private party from 7 to 10 p.m. with DJ Limbs, Revolution beer specials, local food trucks and more.

The pre-ride festival starts around 3 p.m. so people can hang out and enjoy music, Dark Matter Coffee samples, cool vendors and games before riding.

Registration for the 21 and over event includes access to the pre-ride festival, wristband for the private party at Revolution Brewing, a beer ticket, colored-valve cap light and bike route cue sheet and support.

We know people love bikes and beer, so of course Active Trans and Revolution recommend responsible consumption and transportation. The party is close to the Blue Line and major bus routes. Plus, our overnight bike parking option allows anyone to choose to leave his or her bike, take a cab or transit home and pick the bike up the next day.

Registration for Bike to Brew is limited to 1,500 people and Active Trans expects the event will sell out.

Registration is $30 and Active Transportation Alliance members save $5.

When signing up, people may join or renew their Active Trans membership at a discounted rate of $26. People may also add a discounted registration to the Four-Star Bike & Chow Sunday, Sept. 7 for just $25.

Don’t miss out, sign up now!
