Event description

Description

Get on your bike and join us for a ride from Albany Park to Uptown's Argyle Night Market. You ride for free with your friends and neighbors starting at Albany Park's Bikes N' Roses and ending at Uptown Bikes Pop Up on Argyle. The ride will follow Lawrence east to Rockwell, turn north to Winnemac, west to Broadway in Uptown. Support is provided by Bikes N' Roses. Expect a big welcome from Uptown Bikes when we arrive. Free bike valet provided by Uptown Bikes while you explore the Argyle Night Market.

Riders meet between 6:00pm and 6:30pm on Thursday, July 6th in front of Bikes N' Roses at 4747 N Sawyer, just south of Lawrence. The ride along Lawrence starts at 6:30pm and will take about a half hour to arrive at Uptown Bikes Pop Up at 1124 W. Argyle. If you can't make the start time for the ride to Uptown, then meet the squad at the Argyle Night Market and Uptown Bikes Pop Up. Rain or shine.

Argyle Night Market
July 6th is Opening Night for the Argyle Night Market, which is a cross between a street fest and a farmers market! Enjoy this celebration of “Asia on Argyle", a unique corridor featuring Southeast Asian-owned businesses. Especially exciting for this year’s Night Market is a brand new “Shared Street” streetscape – the first in the City of Chicago! This shared street creates a plaza feel, encourages slower car traffic, and is more inviting for pedestrians and cyclists. The Night Market is on Argyle between Sheridan and Kenmore.

Free Bike Valet
Our bike valet hosts are Uptown Bikes, an Uptown institution for 25 years. This summer they will again expand to a special Argyle Pop Up Shop at 1124 W. Argyle! The free bike valet at Uptown Bikes will close at 8:45pm, so please make plans to pick up your bike before then. Thank you. www.uptownbikes.org
