Counting Down to Bike the Drive

Two members of our Bike the Drive team enjoying the eventChicago’s bikers are getting special treatment on Lake Shore Drive in just 53 short days! On May 27, the city is shutting down Lake Shore Drive to all vehicles for bikers to ride between the Museum of Science and Industry to Bryn Mawr on what we all hope will be a gorgeous Sunday. Bike the Drive is a wonderful opportunity to experience a piece of Chicago that most of us don’t get to see very often.

Center for Independent Futures Dream Team is riding again this year! Many of our bikers are riding to raise funds to support our mission: creating innovative service models that support individuals with disabilities in living full, independent lives. Like past years, you and your friends have the thrilling opportunity to ride alongside our vibrant community of bikers. All you need to do is register for Bike the Drive.
