At Active Transportation Alliance, safety and security is a primary focus for all our events. We work together with the Chicago Police Department and city of Chicago officials to produce a safe, fun and enjoyable experience. Uniformed Chicago Police officers are assigned throughout the festival grounds and along the biking route. This event is a family-friendly, public gathering; possession of firearms is prohibited at this event.
With heightened security awareness at public events, we request that you please cooperate with the following enhanced safety procedures:
You can identify Volunteer Managers by their orange polos and Volunteers by their green colored event t-shirts.
We have three ambulances stationed along the route, as well as more than 40 ride marshals, dozens of course marshals and multiple Support and Gear (SAG) vehicles. We also coordinate with Chicago Police, Chicago Fire and Traffic Control Aides who support the event.
