Here’s one more great reason to attend Slow Roll Chicago’s End-of-Season Benefit Celebration, co-hosted by Streetsblog Chicago. Earlier this week, SRC members installed an exhibit of cool bike images by international photographers at the event space.

The party takes place this Saturday, November 7, from 7-10 p.m. at Ancien Cycles, 688 N. Milwaukee Avenue. It doubles as a meet-up for Streetsblog readers.

The get-together will feature DJ Mike Caliber, spinning classic hip-hop and R & B, plus other music for your listening pleasure. Craft beer donated by New Belgium Brewing will be on sale to benefit SRC, and Ancien will also be selling tasty panini, salads, and more.

Slow Roll merchandise will be available, and New Belgium has also provided a classy cruiser bike that we’ll be auctioning off. We’re requesting a $10 donation at the door, with all money going to Slow Roll, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, but give what you can – no one will be turned away.

Hope you can join us for this fun party, for a good cause. Let us know you’re going on the Facebook event page.
