Why We Ride
Slow Roll Chicago is partnering with the Chicago Police Department’s 11th District CAPS Community Policing Office to bring the City of Chicago a family- and youth-focused ride in honor of peace on Chicago streets, utilizing the activity of bicycling to reduce violence on the Westside of Chicago and throughout the City. This ride promises to be an incredibly energetic ride as we celebrate youth achievement and mark the end of Slow Roll Chicago’s 2014 inaugural launch season.
Slow Roll Chicago's final community bicycle ride of 2014 takes us on a gorgeously picturesque route from the Westside of Chicago to Northerly Island and back again. We roll slow through the Lawndale, East Garfield Park, West Town, South Loop, and University Village neighborhoods. We roll slow pass many beautiful sites such as the United Center, UIC Campus, Medical District, Little Italy, and the Museum Campus. We stop at the wonderful Northerly Island to soak up a grand natural landscape within the urban megalopolis that is the City of Chicago. The ride will return to the CPD 11th District for a youth recognition event and a celebratory pizza party.
Slow Roll Chicago rides on the Westside of Chicago to create a deeply transformative experience for the young people who ride with us as well as everyone involved.
