Four-Star Bike Tour offers four great routes and a festival where you can enjoy lunch and a refreshing Goose Island beer after your ride!

The race starts and finishes at Morgan and Taylor streets on the University of Illinois-Chicago campus. It is Sunday, so there will be traffic, but it shouldn’t be too difficult to ride. The tour rides, rain or shine. You should bring these things:

  • Rider numbers and helmet (required) that you get when you register
  • Your driver’s license or ID and some cash
  • Water bottle, bike lock
  • Sunscreen, a spare inner tube, pump and tire levers
  • Extra snacks for yourself

For safety purposes, we recommend you do not wear headphones. It is illegal to use cell phones while riding a bike.
