Celebrate “Ride Your Bike to Work” by Enjoying a Slice of Eli’s Cheesecake at Daley Plaza

If you can’t enjoy Eli’s Cheesecake in Washington DC on January 20th, “Ride Your Bike to Work” in Chicago and enjoy a slice at the Daley Plaza

 

 

01/20/2009

Some people think it is a coincidence that Winter Bike to Work Day is on Inauguration Day.

“What is more patriotic that riding your bicycle,” said Rob Sadowsky, Active Trans executive director.

Come by Daley Plaza (Dearborn and Washington) 6:30 to 9 a.m. Jan. 20 to warm yourself up with coffee and hot cocoa before heading to work.

Each year we celebrate you — the committed — and remember the coldest day in Chicago history — Jan. 20, 1985, when the official temperature at O’Hare International Airport was 27 degrees below zero with 36 mph wind gusts, producing wind chills as low as 93 degrees below zero.

Let’s hope it doesn’t get that chilly, but even if it does, we will be out there celebrating America with you.

Chicago celebrates Bike the Drive; next big bike event is Eli’s Father’s Day Bike Ride

Thanks to Mayor Daley, Chicago has been named as one of the most bicycle friendly cities in the country. The culmination of the bike year in Chicago was this past Sunday of Memorial Day Weekend when the Outer Drive on Chicago’s Lakefront from 57th Street South to Hollywood was closed to auto traffic and into a giant bike path.

I participated for the first time, with our daughter, Elana, and really enjoyed the ability to weave around bikes and not cars, was just thrilling. We joined over 15,000 Chicagoans who enjoyed this most perfect day of the year.

If you are in Chicago on Sunday, June 19th, we look forward to you participating in our historic first ever Eli’s Cheesecake Father’s Day Bike sponsored by Wright College and Rudy’s Bike Shop. There is no charge to participate in this event and we look forward to a great family day beginning and ending at Eli’s Cheesecake World.

The Chicagoland Bicycle Federation does a great job organizing Bike the Drive and bike events throughout the year.

Chicagoans love to ride their bikes.

How exciting for over 15,000 people to pass through the starting gate.

Don’t miss participating in the first annual Eli’s Cheesecake Father’s
Day Bike Ride

Eli’s Father’s Day Bike Ride will debut in 2005!

Each summer, value our partnership with Mayor Daley’s Bicycle Ambassadors and
the Chicago Bicycle Federation. Mayor Daley has a goal for Chicago to be the
most bicycle friendly city in America and the beginning of Spring is a great
time to start exploring the City’s neighborhoods and lakefront parks via
bike.

If you will be in Chicago over Memorial Day Weekend, don’t miss Bike the
Drive. For that Sunday morning, Lake Shore Drive is closed for its entire length
and the Chicago Bicycle Federation has both a 15 mile and 30 mile ride plan for
the day.

When I read about Bike the Drive, I wondered why we couldn’t have a bike ride
sponsored by Eli’s. Under the leadership of my associates, Debbie Osman and Mary
Gale, Eli’s Cheesecake, together with Rudy’s Cycle Shop and Wright College, are
sponsoring our first annual Father’s Day Bike Ride on Sunday, June 19th. The
description below is from the online Bike Chicago Brochure at www.bikechicago2005.org. Check it out
and come ride with us on Father’s Day.

 

Father’s Day Bike Ride (REC/K), Sunday, June
