Tenth Annual

Pullman Labor Day
Bike Ride

Historic Pullman, the original company town built by George Pullman in the 1880s to house the workers at his Palace Car factory, is a significant part of the rich Chicago southside labor history. Hosted by Pullman's strong civic and cultural organizations, the seventh annual Pullman Labor Day Bike Ride will  be on September 1st, 2014. Appropriately held on Labor Day, our ride's theme honors the important role labor unions have played in Pullman and the Calumet region. The bike ride has been a huge success these past seven years thanks to our contributors and riders.

All proceeds from the ride go towards expenses and a celebration at the Visitors Center 11141 S.Cottage Grove Ave. in Pullman at the conclusion of the 30 mile course. Lunch and a labor history program will be a part of the festivities, with appropriate speakers for the occasion.

Help to continue the tradition of honoring labor in the region of Pullman, where labor history was made during the infancy of the movement.
