This week Chicago celebrates Bike to Work Week – a month after the National Bike to Work Week. Usually by June Chicago has more favorable weather to attract more folks to get out on bikes.

Friday morning is the Bike To Work Rally at Daley Plaza from 7-9am. The city invites all bike commuters to celebrate the bike as a mode of commuting.

Join thousands of cyclists for live music and FREE continental breakfast provided by 7-Eleven. Also, all cyclists will receive a FREE T-shirt as well as use of the complimentary Kickstart by Mountain Dew Free Bike Valet.

I try to attend this rally every year because each year I find myself reuniting with friends and meeting new bike friends.

At last year (2012)’s Bike to Work Rally with bike friends.

Except for the horrific storms in the Chicagoland area on Wednesday, this week has been a great week (weather-wise) to be on the bike (commuting or riding just for fun).

To conclude the week of events, this Saturday Bike Chicago is hosting a feature event called Make Way For People Bike Tour. The Tour goes from 9:30am-12 noon; meet at Millenium Park. Register here.

May every week be bike to work week for you.
