Chicago, IL, USA, June 27, 2012
It’s time to bike n’ roll and see the best of Chicago’s sunny sights on two wheels. This summer Kimpton’s four Chicago-based hotels are launching a new “Bike this Town” package to help visitors take advantage of Chicago’s numerous lakefront trails, parks and beaches. The “Bike this Town” package includes a one-night stay in deluxe accommodations, two complimentary bicycle rentals, a packed picnic lunch for two (delicious options vary at each hotel) and a biker’s survival kit equipped with helmets, locks, maps detailing lakefront routes, energy bars, bottled water, sun block, and cyclometers to track one’s distance.
There’s even more need for speed this summer because Kimpton’s Chicago-based hotels will donate one dollar for every mile biked to Pedal Power (GoPedalPower.com), a local charity founded in 2008 by then eight-year-old, Nicole Basil. Pedal Power collects unused bikes and donates them to Chicago public schools where they are rewarded to children with good grades. Proceeds from Kimpton’s “Bike this Town” package will help fund helmets for the future tykes on their bikes.
Participating hotels include:
- Hotel Allegro: http://www.allegrochicago.com
- Hotel Burnham: http://www.burnhamhotel.com
- Hotel Monaco Chicago: http://www.monaco-chicago.com
- Hotel Palomar Chicago: http://www.hotelpalomar-chicago.com
Kimpton’s “Bike this Town” package will run from July 1, 2012 through September 30, 2012 with rates starting at $239 per night. Blackout dates apply. To book, visit the individual hotel’s website (links included above) and enter rate code BIKE or call 1-800-KIMPTON and mention rate code BIKE.
