Big Shoulders Realty, Chicago Velo and New Belgium Brewing are excited to bring to you a musical, bike-filled fall day at the Hideout to benefit West Town Bikes. 


There will be rides, and bike tricks.  Mechanics contests and tours.  Live bands and DJs, bike films, and specials on New Belgium Brewing products.  All of this will be designed to help raise funds to support the good works that West Town Bikes does. 


Some of the acts scheduled to perform include Nonagon, John Greenfield (with Illinois First! and Solo), the Racketeers, the Cathy Santonies, Schwinntonation, Ornery Little Darlings and Elia Einhorn (of Scotland Yard Gospel Choir) and Friends.  Afterwards, stick around for a dance party with DJ The Jimmer and DJ Billy Ocean until the wee hours of 2:30 AM. 

Additionally we will have a party to greet the Kidical Mass riders to start the festival around Noon and a revamped Tour of Logan Square.  Roller sprints between bands, BMX and fixed gear tricks and contests, a mechanics challenge and a variety of giveaways and activities.  Basically, it is an all-day musical, bicycle fall fest to enjoy in celebration of our favorite cycling season and to benefit the fine people and good works of West Town Bikes.


Tickets availabile through the Hideout at $20 each. 


If you can't make it, but want to donate to West Town Bikes, you can buy a "There in spirit" pass that will give you a poster of the event with proceeds to benefit West Town Bikes.

Lee, I'm good until about 3:15-3:30 then I'm off to Evanston for a very important meeting with Wolverines.

Yes Yom Kippur, but it ends around 7:30 PM.... so no excuse after you break fast!  I'm hoping to go around 9 or 10 and it's my bday!

This sounds amazing, but I also can't make it because it's Yom Kippur.
