About Bike Ride for the Kids

It all started in 2008 when a handful of ARCO employees decided to ride bicycles to the opening Notre Dame football game to raise money for the kids of South Bend. Thirteen years and hundreds of miles later, we are still making an annual trip for the kids. This fall, we will once again leave downtown Chicago to travel along the Lake Michigan bound for South Bend in support of The Kids!

This year's in-person route

This year we will be returning to our roots and the ride will again be from Chicago to Notre Dame Stadium in South Bend, Indiana like years past. Stay tuned for more information as registration opens later this summer!

Make sure to bring your friends and family out for a fun day supporting a great cause!
