Go Green Go Dutch Go Bike Ride

This Saturday Chicago’s Active Transportation Alliance and the Netherlands Consulate General come together to bring you Chicago’s first Go Green Go Dutch Go Bike! event.

go green go dutch go bike

Chicago has three European-style bike shops, including Defietsfabriek-USA and Dutch Bike Co., which are participating in this ride.

Rider registration automatically enters you into a raffle to win a Dutch bike – the Gazelle Toer Populair (retail value $1,349), donated by Dutch Bike Co. Chicago.

And Jon Lind, owner of Defietsfabriek-USA (which I’ve featured in previous posts), will be “assembling a great crew of colorful bikes and riders together” to ride from his shop to the start of the ride at Montrose Harbor and back.

Come out and join me and my mom for a bike ride this weekend.

    I missed the one in Miami. Who do I have to beg to show up a little early and snag me a lovely orange t-shirt? PLEASE??!!

    Amen…those orange t-shirts are awesome!

    Sounds like a fun time — and there will always be room in my fleet for a genuine Dutch machine. Have fun, and I look forward to coverage of the event.
