Where: Touhy Park, 7358 N. Paulina
Join your neighbors in the 49th ward for a fun-filled day of activities focused on bicycles and bike safety!
Whether you're a hardcore bicycling enthusiast, or simply want to spend a nice summer day riding bikes with your kids, this is the place to be. Local businesses and community organizations will offer the following:
- Bike safety checks
- Helmet fittings
- Cycling merchandise
- Gift certificates
- Rider safety tips
The Recyclery, Rogers Park's used bicycle collective, will be accepting donations of used bikes, and the Rogers Park Parent's Group will host some kid-friendly activities for all ages. Mayor Daley's Bicycling Ambassadors will also be on hand with a table of activities for kids and adults.
At 12 Noon we'll mount up and enjoy an Ambassador-escorted bike ride through the neighborhood and then return to Touhy Park for a picnic lunch provided by Partners for Rogers Park!
Many thanks to Roberts Cycle, 7054 N. Clark, for providing the safety checks, helmet fittings, cycling merchandise and gift certificates.
