RIDE TO WRIGLEY 051210 53.jpg

Cubs board member Todd Ricketts (left) will be leading 163 bike riders in the Wrigley Field Road Tour century ride tomorrow at 8 a.m. The group will make the 100-mile trip from Clark and Addison to Milwaukee’s Miller Park, where they’ll watch the Cubs taking on the Brewers.

Among the riders tomorrow are Todd’s brother and fellow board member Pete, SRAM executive vice president F.K. Day (far right), and Rahsaan Bahati, the 2008 U.S. Professional Criterium National Champion.

All told, riders already have raised more than $105,000 for World Bicycle Relief and Chicago Cubs Charities. That funding will help support our local neighborhood programs in Wrigleyville as well as improverished communities throughout the world, through the empowerment of bicycles.
