This year we ran our first ever fully free Adult Overnight Rides as a way to show gratitude to those in our community. On these rides, we provided a guided round-trip tour, camping, dinner, fire, snacks, some beverages, and breakfast all no cost for our riders.The first one was to celebrate our Essential Workers who did so much for us during the pandemic and continue to do the essential work for Chicagoland. On that one, we had 4 folks ride out to Camp Shabonna in June.
We then got to appreciate our local bike shop workers with a free ride to camp at Big Marsh in September (thanks to our partners at the Chicago Park District that helped make that happen and workers from Cog Cycles and Yarn, Boulevard Bikes, Roscoe Village Bikes, and Bike City Bikes for taking part).
Gratitude is an important value at OOFD. These rides helped us stay aligned with that value, and generally were awesome additions to our ride line-up this year. We plan to grow on these types of rides next year for sure!
