I'm getting me some free cheesecake! Whooooooo!
Winter Bike to Work Day is January 20
Celebrate the anniversary of Chicago's coldest recorded day! The official temperature at O'Hare was -27° on January 20, 1985. 36 mph wind gusts produced wind chills as low as -93°.
No matter how cold or snowy January 20 is in 2005, the Chicagoland Bicycle Federation is encouraging everyone to commute to work by bicycle. If you work in downtown Chicago, stop by our tent in Daley Plaza (Dearborn and Washington) between 7 a.m. and 9 a.m. for a warm drink and treat, compliments of Eli's Cheesecake, as well as prizes from Bokoo Bikes. If you work elsewhere, ride to work and then send us an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org to tell us about your experience.
