On the South Shore of the Great Lakes exists an ecological marvel unlike any other place in the world and we're going bike there and camp. We'll learn the struggle for a National Park, discover the birthplace of ecology, the rise of Steel, and pop in one of the last remaining wood-smoked seafood shacks in Illinois, for a mouth-watering snack. All on a two day bike ride and campout from Chicago to Indiana Dunes.

Campsite reservation
Dinner, breakfast, Campfire & S'mores, Adult beverages
Interpretative Trail Guides
A Special Trip Collectible
And a Chance to win a Co-Motion Cycles Divide bike and two Amtrak tickets from Chicago to Glacier National Park for you and your friend to go on an epic trip later on in the year.

At the stops we'll have historical maps, visuals, and stories collected from researchers. While there, we will run up and down as many trails as we can without face planting. Keep an eye out for the itty-bitty Chicago skyline on the horizon, go on a moonlight hike/swim, and learn about the remarkable ecology.

ALL ARE WELCOME. If you have any flats or troubles we are here to help. The distance and trip are great for beginners and is insightful for seasoned pros. So come along and invite a friend or make a new one. All proceeds go back to the natural and cycling good.

We will meet up at Buckingham Fountain at 7:00 am
We'll then bike to & overnight at Indiana Dunes with breaks along the way. At the Dunes: explore, hike, have fun, and have a fire.
On Day 2 we'll Return to Chicago by Bike with stops in the industrial steel corridor and arrive back to Chicago around 7pm The Pace: Casual, talk have fun, no one is left behind.
