If you've thought about riding your bike to work but haven't quite made the leap yet, now is your chance to give it a try while participating in Chicago's Bike to Work Week, June 13-19.

Each morning, Monday through Thursday, bike commuter stations--where you can get free air, chain lube and coffee--will be set up in different locations around the city.

On Monday, June 15th, ride your bike to the Bike Away from Work Party at Goose Island Wrigleyville from 5:00-8:00 PM and get a free beverage. Just be careful riding home after that!

Top off the week with the Mayor's Bike to Work Rally on Friday, June 19th, 7:30 AM-6:00 PM. Activities will include valet bike parking, free T-shirt and breakfast, raffle, activities throughout the day, music, food and 312 Beer Garden.

Visit the Active Transportation Alliance's website for more details, as well as information on the Bike Commuter Challenge and details on how to combine riding your bike with the Metra.
