For the fourth year, MB Financial Bank is proud to sponsor the event that heralds summer in Chicago – MB Financial Bank Bike that Drive on Sunday, May 26, 2013.
To kick off early bird registration, MB is offering a special coupon that upgrades the early bird discount to $10 off registration. Plus, after registering, early birds will receive a complimentary CamelBak® water bottle from MB. Simply stop into any MB banking center to pick up a coupon which has a unique, one-time use discount code. Then, using this discount code, register online for MB Financial Bank Bike the Drive (http://www.bikethedrive.org) between January 18 and February 1, 2013. After registering, participants will receive a CamelBak® water bottle from MB to stay well-hydrated when on the go. It’s a great way to save some money, get some exercise, help the environment and enjoy one of the true treasures of the windy city as never before.
This non-competitive and family-oriented cycling event is the main fundraiser of the Active Transportation Alliance, a non-profit organization dedicated to making biking, walking and public transit in Chicagoland safer, easier and fun.

New this year, participants can also ride for a cause while supporting the local and global efforts of the Active Transportation Alliance and World Bicycle Relief.
