The 5th annual Bike The Drive will be held on May 28 in Chicago, Ill., USA. Starting at sunrise at Columbus and Balbo avenues, participants will ride through Chicago's famous Grant Park, and past some of Chicago's most iconic structures including Buckingham Fountain, the Hancock building, Navy Pier and the Field Museum. Registration is 50 percent sold out, but there are still 10,000 slots available for the car-free bicycle ride.
Following the ride, there will be a festival in Grant Park until noon, featuring music, food, a bike rodeo and special activities for children, among other things. New this year is the Schwinn Air Show in which riders perform aerial manoeuvres 20 to 30 feet above the ramps and showcase technical stunts on the ground.
Registration is $35 for Chicagoland Bicycle Federation members. Children 13 and under pay $5, which does not include a T-shirt. For $55, receive a Bike The Drive registration and a year-long membership to the Chicagoland Bicycle Federation. Non-members pay $40.
