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 showed up for our inaugural Street Love Ride. The goal was to show the streets some love, but it was more than reciprocated as people honked their horns, raised their fists, and cheered at the ride’s positivity.
We felt the love on that ride, and it deepened our belief that that our city stands strongest in the fight against violence when we stand as one. It has us excited to plan for our next Street Love Ride – a streets & biking expo followed by an 8pm night ride on Saturday, August 21st, 2021!
We will be posting additional information soon, but in the meantime – those interested in partnering with us or sponsoring the ride can reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Much appreciation to our planning partners – Equiticity, Working Bikes, Ride Illinois, and the Lawndale Christian Fitness Center – and the many others who are making this ride possible.
Let’s roll, Chicago!
