We are based out of the Wilson Ave Parking Lot. The GPS address is 600 W. Wilson Ave, and located on the EAST side of Lake Shore Drive. You can also use the Lincoln Wilson Skate Park. We are in the south east corner of the lot.

If you are able to bring your own bicycle to ride with our athletes, please do so.

We need volunteers to help with the following roles each week (no prior experience necessary):

  • Assisting with unloading, loading, and adjustment of adaptive cycling and running equipment

  • Assist athletes in transferring in and out of their adaptive equipment

  • Piloting athletes who are visually impaired on a tandem bicycle

  • Running or biking alongside athletes on lakefront path to ensure safety, offer assistance and give motivation

If you are driving, it is a pay parking lot. But, we encourage you to ride your bike or take public transportation!

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Shawna Carter at shawna@dare2tri.org.
