We had a great start to Father’s Day at Eli’s Cheesecake with our Inaugural Father’s Day Bike Ride. We had great community partners in Wright College and Rudy’s Bike Shop, fantastic bike partners in the Chicago Bicycle Federation and Mayor Daley’s Bicycle Ambassadors and a smooth, safe ride thanks to the 16th District of the Chicago Police Department and Commander Neil Sullivan.

Our thanks to Eli’s Event Chairman, Debbie Osman, who has worked tirelessly to make a day such a success and to Donna Carberry and Mary Gale, who provided so much support.

Over 100 bicycle riders start out on the 7 mile route through Wright Community, Portage Park and Norwood Park. Eli’s event chairperson, Debbie Osman, follows the police escort.



The northwest side of Chicago and the 16th District is fortunate to Commander Sullivan and the dedicated professionals on his staff. Their assistance guaranteed a safe and very enjoyable ride.
