   Ride Times

Location & Parking
Parkinson’s Revolution Chicago will take place at Lakeshore Sport & Fitness, 1320 W. Fullerton, Chicago, IL 60614 with parking off the street alongside the club.

Check-In
Upon arrival, you will need to check in and fill out a waiver for Lakeshore Sports & Fitness which can be completed by clicking here. Following your waiver check-in, you will follow the balloon trail and Revolution Chicago Signs to the event reception area upstairs. Once in that area you will be able to confirm your registration, collect rewards, enjoy some refreshments, take some fun photos and network with our event sponsors! On site lockers are available to guests of the club, just be sure to bring a small padlock with you.

Shoes
Revolution Chicago bikes will work with either clip in or traditional gym shoes.

What to Wear to Spin Class?
New to indoor cycling? You will want to wear comfortable clothes designed for exercising. Consider wearing tighter pants or shorts that won’t move around as you ride the bike. Wicking material (not cotton) is the best fabric for fitness – when you start sweating it wicks the moisture away from your skin so you can feel comfortable while you ride! A small towel might be useful as well.

What to Expect at the 2022 Event:
We have made some changes for the 2022 event to make sure we keep all our participants, volunteers and staff as safe as possible. This year we will also be utilizing QR codes at the event that you can scan with your smartphone to learn more about our Parkinson’s resources.

Following your ride, the Parkinson’s Foundation Midwest Chapter would like to celebrate you by hosting a casual after-party on the rooftop deck of Lakeshore Sports & Fitness. Each rider will receive one free drink to enjoy at the bar of Harvest Restaurant. The rooftop deck of Lakeshore Sport & Fitness is open to the public, so encourage friends and family to join you for that celebratory drink or enjoy dinner at Harvest Restaurant!

Ride Day Tips:
1. Drink lots of water before, during and after your class. Staying hydrated is a BIG part of staying healthy. - Bring a full water bottle with you.
2. Eat a small snack 45 minutes before class, including morning classes! Exercising on a very full or empty stomach is not recommended.
3. Check that your handlebar and seat settings are tightly in place and that your shoes are securely in your pedals. Ask the studio staff for help if it’s your first-time riding – they’re experts and there to help you 😊.
4. Please notify instructors before class if you have any injuries so that they can help accommodate and offer modifications.

On-event Donations
Please remember Parkinson’s Revolution is a cashless event. Credit card donations can be made before the event online through your participant center. If you would like to make a check donation you can bring that to the event and drop off with event staff.
