In honor of Active Trans' 30th Anniversary, Four Star will be taking a break so we can bring back one of our most beloved events – The Boulevard Lakefront Tour (BLT) on Sunday, Aug. 23. Riders can choose from 4 rides and revisit some of the original routes for BLT, which started in 1989. The reminiscing will continue at our post ride festival with music, food and a throwback apparel contest. Register when you sign up for Bike the Drive and save on this truly special Active Trans event.
Ready to sign up? Add a Boulevard Lakefront Tour registration to your MB Financial Bank Bike the Drive registration at www.bikethedrive.org. Stand-alone registration for Boulevard Lakefront Tour will open in June.
