Wrigley Field Road Tour 2012 WFRT Danielle Marie

 

 

A century is a party. It’s a party and they’re feeding you. – Glenna Lampner

 

 

 

Did you miss last year’s Wrigley Field Road Tour and the post-ride party at Wrigley Field? Cubs fans, your mantra holds true for us. “There’s always next year!” And “next year” is 2013!

The biggest party on wheels is back for its fourth year! The Wrigley Field Road Tour will again help raise funds to benefit the global work of World Bicycle Relief and the local work of Chicago Cubs Charities. And, once again, the ride will conclude with a celebration on the hallowed outfield of Wrigley Field.

Wrigley Field Road Tour…100 Miles to Go

Here are just a few of the reviews we received from the 2012 WFRT:

Great ride. Great support. Excellent route and a party on the field at Wrigley. It can’t get any better. – Andrew B

Great route and support. Special thanks to the motorcycle crew for escorting us out of the city. People cheered us at every rest stop which was really cool. I didn’t ride in the previous two Wrigley but I can’t imagine anything better than a party at Wrigley to finish the day. From using the visitors’ locker room to playing catch in the outfield with my brother and daughter…just a magical day. – John G

Great ride! So well organized, the rest stops were great and the volunteers were friendly and cheered for upon arrival and departure! The party at Wrigley was a blast and a great way to cap off my first century! Thanks for all who organized, staffed & volunteered! – Sarah A

After a great experience like that, the post-ride party managed to top it! We walked onto the outfield at Wrigley Field where they had a barbeque, open bar, and concert featuring one of my favorite bands, Poi Dog Pondering. Pinch me now! – John G, a/k/a Running News Guy

It was a great ride with great support along the route. Good signage. Great rest stops and healthy snacks/food. Terrific motorcycle support and SAG wagons riding the route. Loved the after-party on the field. Really appreciated the Higher Gear training rides offered in June-July-August…great way to build camaraderie and elevate skills. Thank you to all the hard work that went into creating the event and now the ripple effect of touching so many lives. – Ruth-Anne R
