2014 Stride to Recharge
Last year we debuted our walk as part of the Ride to Recharge Series. This year the Stride to Recharge will be even bigger and better!
Students, faculty, and Climate Cycle supporters can walk or ride for solar installations and environmental projects to benefit Chicago area schools. Walkers and riders garner pledges in advance of the event, fundraise through our website, and/or hand in cash donations on ride day at check-in.
WHERE: 111 N. Lake Shore Drive (E. Randolph St. at the Lakeshore Path, near the north end of Grant Park.) Also called DuSable Harbor.
The site is accessible via CTA:
1) Red Line – Monroe/State
2) Brown/Purple/Green/Pink/Orange Line – Madison/Wabash
3) Blue Line – Monroe/Dearborn
The most direct route is to walk east on Monroe and then north on the lakefront path until you arrive at DuSable Harbor. The walk is about 15 – 20 minutes.
There is a roundabout at Randolph and Lake Shore Drive where participants can be dropped off via car or bus.
