Chicago Bike Revolution
Time Out says
New Belgium Brewing's Tour de Fat event is taking a year off, so West Town Bikes is teaming up with Revolution Brewing to present a new beer and biking festival in its stead. It looks pretty familiar: There's a bike parade to kick off the day, plenty of cold beverages to enjoy, an appearance from local marching band Mucca Pazza and a stacked list of local musicians taking the stage throughout the afternoon. Soulful duo the O'My's headline the day's festivities, with support from singer/rapper/saxophonist Sen Morimoto, psych-rock collective Glad Rags, poct-punk act Negative Scanner and synth-pop outfit Little Church. Proceeds from the event keep West Town Bikes' classes and youth programs rolling all year.
