Biking for Burritos

OK. I must admit that I've never had a burrito from Chipotle before. Not because I have anything against them necessarily, but when there's at least four or five stellar burrito joints within spitting distance of your house, there's really no need to truck out somewhere and eat a burrito made by someone who's paycheck is signed by the McDonalds Corp.

That being said, this is really cool. Dan Korman, the director of the Chicagoland Bicycle Federation, a fine, fine organization dedicated to furthering Chicago's reputation as the best Bicycling city in the USofA posted a heads up for Chipotle's Bicycle Appreciation Days to the Chicago Critical Mass Listserv.

Check it:

Burritos are 100% off (that's right, free) to all bike riders who visit Chipotle Mexican Grill, 1166 N. State St., Chicago, on Aug. 20 and 21. All you have to do is ride your bike to the restaurant and show Chipotle staffers your helmet or a photo of your two-wheeler and receive a free burrito, bowl or taco.
Whoo! Free burritos!


  • I had my first and only Chipotle burrito about a year and a half ago. It was pretty tasty in that pre-fab quasi-ethnic fast-food way, but not awesome enough to draw me back. Hell, even in Lincoln Park/Lakeview there are better tiny Mexican joints.

  • If I were local I would definitely take advantage of that deal. Free food is almost always worth it, and I've never gotten sick from eating Chipotle. If only the Chipotle near work had that deal I'd be golden as I bike to work pretty much every day. Are you going to that Flaming Lips VOID release party?
