The Active Transportation Alliance is hosting the 25th annual Chicago Bike Week, which kicks off Friday.
With a commitment to celebrate being the “best big city for bicycling,” Bike Week has several free events throughout the seven days, according to the event website.
The main event is the Bike Commuter Challenge, where commuters are encouraged to work with co-workers and compete against other workplaces to see which company can get the highest percentage of employees riding to work from June 10 -17. Each workplace is to register online and track its miles each day.
This year, Active Trans is also introducing a free mobile app that will automatically track the miles biked during the week.
All levels of bicyclists are invited to participate on the week-long event.
