Bike Out Negativity, 2021

Our team’s annual North Lawndale Bike Ride for Peace evolved into a citywide cycling phenomenon in 2020, when more than 400 riders from across Chicago joined in our inaugural Street Love Ride. The ride was such a success that we’ve expanded into a summer ride series: We invite the city to join our first annual “Bike Out NegativityExpo & Ride to kick off summer with a celebration of Chicago’s youth on Saturday, May 22nd, 2021.

There will be a children’s/youth expo from 10am – 1pm – come for snacks, music, community, and to check out the tables! At 1pm we’ll kick off an approx. 8 mile “fun ride” through North Lawndale. Join the phenomenon as we stand (and ride) in love and positivity as one Chicago for our city’s youth!
