Winter Bike to Work Day
Not to be undone by the weekend's predicted sub-zero temps, the Chicagoland Bicycle Federation has declared that tomorrow will be Winter Bike to Work Day. The hardy and foolish are hooking up at Daley Plaza between 7 and 9 a.m. From their site:
The date marks the 23rd anniversary of Chicago's coldest recorded day — Jan. 20, 1985, when the official temperature at O'Hare was minus 27 degrees with 36 mph wind gusts, which produced wind chills as low as minus 93 degrees.
From 7 to 9 a.m. Jan. 18, the Chicagoland Bicycle Federation will welcome bike riders to the plaza for this annual event, serving hot chocolate and Eli's Cheesecake. Plus, there's a free raffle for prizes from the Chicagoland Bicycle Federation.
