Event Information

Event Overview

Lurie Children’s Pedalpalooza is a virtual cycling experience that challenges participants to ride 100 miles in the month of July while fundraising for Lurie Children’s. Participants are encouraged to cycle indoors or safely on the road and can log 100 miles in one day, a weekend or over the course of the month. Pedalpalooza was designed for avid cyclists who want to challenge themselves as well as for families, indoor cyclists and new riders. We’ll provide the tools you need to fundraise, as well as support with planning your personal 100-mile experience. Throughout the month, there will be opportunities to experience special virtual events, participate in group Peloton rides, tackle smaller mileage challenges, earn exclusive incentive merch and celebrate your impact on the patients at Lurie Children’s.

Event Logistics

Solo participants will individually track their miles with a goal of logging 100 miles in the month of July. Families can track miles together with a combined 100-mile goal.

How do I track my miles?

First, make sure you have downloaded the STRAVA app with your phone. Next, login to your participant center. At the bottom of the page you will sere a white button that says “Connect with STRAVA”. Authorize the connection between Pedalpalooza and STRAVA, and that’s it! Please let Ted know if you have any questions.
