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.

Eli’s Inaugural Father’s Day Bike Ride a Great Success–Thanks to our Partners, Wright College and Rudy’s Bike Shop

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.

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.
