Time after time we walk near the lakefront path, the gorgeous harbors along Lake Michigan, and the picture-perfect riverfront scenery of Chicago on our way to and from work, but rarely do we ever stop to really experience some of the best things that Chicago has to offer.
Raise your hand if you can relate.
At aSweatLife, we’re fans of spontaneous adventure, but we’re also fans of productivity. And this summer, we’ve been up to a lot. We put together 36 events in June and July between #Sweatworking and #SweatworkingWeek, #TrainersConnect, Erin Oprea takeover weekends and Ambassador events. It suffices to say, we’ve been busy. And while we love it all, it’s hard to stop and smell the roses (or, the geraniums if we’re being specific about what’s in bloom during the summer months in Chicago).
And that’s precisely why we created this very special #Sweatworking city adventure along the lakefront path on August 27! We hope you’ll join us as we combine two essential summer Chicago bucket list items: biking the lakefront path and kayaking.
What’s happening on August 27?
Tuesday 8/27 at 6 pm, we’ll convene at Monroe Harbor for a kayaking excursion powered by CLIF Bar that will take us out for skyline views of the city while we meet new friends in true #Sweatworking fashion. Get ready for a Whole Lotta fun.
We’ll dock back at Monroe Harbor and grab Divvy bikes (they’ll bring an entire truck of bikes for us to select from), take a ride to Shedd Aquarium’s picturesque backdrop to snap a photo, then bike north along the lakefront path up to North Avenue Beach (in total, a 30-minute ride).
Once we drop off our Divvy bikes off, we’ll enjoy a picnic on the beach brought to you by CLIF Bar.
