Massive event promoting the end of oil and the beauty of people.  Held globally with dozens of cities participating.  Bare-as-you-dare with outfits ranging from body paint to fanciful costumes to beachwear. Chicago's seen over two thousand cyclists and skaters and more tour over a dozen miles of high visibility tourism and recreation areas. The ride's atmosphere is extremely joyful and transcendently fun.  Bicycles are the best solution to reducing America's oil addiction and improving public health and we're spreading that message.  Read full details at

Hey bikers. I'm thinking about joining this year (first!) but need to be in Rogers Park for part of the evening, too. Would there be someone I can reach out to personally to secretly ask whether the ride heads north first, and approx. how far north it gets?
