Bike by the Federal Plaza in Chicago’s Loop on Jan. 20 from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. for the annual celebration of cyclists who don’t let cooler temperatures stop them from pedaling to work.

The Active Trans warming tent will provide riders with Caribou coffee and tea plus our traditional Eli's Cheesecake. This event commemorates coldest day in Chicago history—Jan. 20, 1985, when the official temperature at O’Hare International Airport was 27 degrees below zero. Federal Plaza is located at Adams Street and Dearborn Street in the Loop.

Get a Grip Cycles will be at the event showing off winter gear and offering free adjustments, West Town Bikes will be pumping out the tunes with its sound system trailer and Chicago Bike Winter will be offering free fleece headwear. Representatives from the Chainlink website also will be on hand to introduce cyclists to their resources.
