We’re 30 days till event weekend!!



This Saturday, weather permitting, we’ll host another weekly training Ride. We’re doing a longer distance this week so please arrive at Winnemac by 7:15 AM, ready to leave 7:30 AM. Email Patrick at to let us know to expect you. Sue has promised more treats (oatmeal and blueberry bites, anyone?) so come to training for some tasty goodies!

Should we have to cancel training due to rain, we’ll post information in the Facebook group and on the training calendar.

A Fundraising Opportunity: Midsommarfest

TPAN will be sponsoring a booth in front of the Cheetah Gym in Andersonville to raisemidsommarfest awareness about TPAN’s Ride for Life Chicago and other programs and events. Would you be willing to share a few hours on Saturday or Sunday between 11 AM – 5 PM? By selling RFLC bracelets for a suggested donation, you can raise funds for your page. You can also use our booth to sell your artwork, t-shirts, etc., to raise money for your page. Come dressed in your favorite cycling jersey or a fun outfit! Everyone, including crew members, volunteers, and virtual participants, is welcome! The participants will split the funds raised!


Please contact us at if you have questions or ideas. The more, the merrier!

Events! Events! Events!

There are lots of fun events on the calendar. Attending RFLC events is a fun way to be a part of our community. You get to see and meet other participants, support others in the fundraising and most of all, they’re fun! Events are part of the heart and soul of what makes TPAN’s Ride for Life Chicago fun.

Here are the events scheduled over the next two weeks:
