GETTING THERE + PARKING
The Ride will be located just inland from the Foster Beach area, in a lovely shady grove of trees along the bike path. Plentiful parking is available in the Foster Beach parking lot, just east of DuSable Lake Shore Drive, off the Foster Ave exit.
Join us before the ride steps off as we share a moment of reflection and remember those we have lost in the past year.
The annual Chicago Theater Bike Ride is a gentle 10 mile loop along the Chicago lakefront from Foster Avenue Beach to North Avenue Beach and back. Riders may ride at their own pace and follow signs along the course, or join a group led by a course marshal. Water and snacks are provided at Foster Avenue Beach. For those in need of a bike, a DIVVY bike share station located at the lake front trail and Bryn Mawr Avenue.
If you are not interested in riding, that’s okay too. All are welcome to gather and celebrate our community at Foster Avenue Beach - during the opening ceremony, while the ride is going on, and at the picnic that follows the ride.
FOOD + DRINK
Before the ride, water and snacks are provided. Following the ride or while others are riding - enjoy the company of fellow theater people and a BBQ/picnic, with the gorgeous Chicago lakefront as your backdrop. Reminder: Alcohol is not permitted in Chicago parks.
